Thanks everyone. I haven't had down the drag strip but I plan too. I need to do some tuning, maybe recurve the distributer. It's a great driver but traction limited! I have opentracked it at Nashville Super Speedway. It handles better than you would imagine! I have a pumpkin with 4:11's but right now I'm running the 2.79 open for the road and a stock torque converter. Not the best for drag racing. Needs bigger tires for sure!
I am glad it can serve as inspiration. It has been a project almost the entire time I have had it. Only looking good for just the last couple years. I did almost everything myself except final prep and paint. My wife did the seats and headliner. It's not a show car, it's a driver and it gets door dings and rock chips. I get a lot of compliments at shows bit not really won anything. We drive it everywhere so it has bug guts and road grime. I'm not one of those guys who cleans and polishes the car during a show. I like to look at everyone elses stuff! I'm glad others like but I built it for me and if it doesn't get a trophy at a show its no big deal.
Married to TARA so that makes me "TARA-fied"!
