Well I got a little more done so i thought I would post it. I got the new rear end under the car and got the engine bay cleaned up and painted. Ready to install the K member and front suspension next. Also got the heads checked for cracks and off the the shop to get them done.

This is amazing..

U/SA National Record 12.94 seconds at 101.16 mph
Set by BJ Graham in a 76 Ford in Tuscon, AZ Feb 21, 2016.


R/SA and T/SA are at 13 flat by Briaine Philbrick 76 Monza
and Don Lisell's 77 Caddy which is pretty damn good.

But a 12 Second U/SA...wow !!
Guess V/SA is next to figure out how to run a 12...

Here is a prediction; All Mack will eventually find an 11sec ET in Q/SA.

Dan

Didn't a V/S (stick) Chevy truck with V6 run high 12's to be the #1 qualifier at Indy few years ago?

If they are seen on my land I can guarantee they'll never be seen again.

We used the torch method too. Someone mentioned toasting marshmallows over the burning rubber until I said I wouldn't be taking them to their chemotherapy treatments if they did.

Cool build you have going on there RobbieRacer. I enjoy reading up on your progress.

Years ago I had thought about building a '78 Fairmont boxtop with the 302 / C4 combo

Hmmm....might be a new goal.
The closest I ever came Dan as a Q car was a 12.36 in 2013, and that was my very first pass ever in NHRA Stock Eliminator.
Too bad I did not back up that run or it would have been the record.

AL...you took a non standard combo and made it rock !
After you cut a 11 second ET you will become famous !!

THEN after that NOW what are you going to do?

It's been a while but I getting things done. I got the front end back together and got the front brakes done. These are the rims I will be running but the tires are going away. I put the car on blocks so I have more room under it. Next project it welding in the sub frame connector's.
