Out of place? Ha! Trust me, your car will get PLENTY of attention. I just wish you weren't so far away as I would love to stand at your display and drool.

Back home from a long weekend. The car seemed to be pretty well received by some of the people attending. Seems like the judges might have liked it a little as well. Competition was the class as in race car class.

Thanks to everyone who came out and took some time to chat and help pass the time.

Dad and I had always talked about having a car in an indoor car show. Sure wish he could have been here for this as I think he would have really enjoyed it. One more item checked off the bucket list.

Time to get back to working on that remaining items on the “To-Do” list to get ready for making initial passes come spring.

I don't know if I corrected this yet or not. Although the thread is titled 8.50 index, I have since changed my mind and am moving the car to run some 1/8 mile top bulb racing. Cecil has a Top Sportsman class I'll run at the Street Car Shootouts. I can then run without the restrictor plate.

This car is simply amazing. Congrats on the well deserved recognition. Absolutely my favorite build on here. I'm a big fox body fan especially a nice 4 eye. This is my dream bracket car. Totally nailed it.

Re: 8.50 index build
One of the details people at the show seemed to really like was the custom air brushing on the dash. Here's a couple of better pics.

A while back I ordered a custom car cover from California Car Cover. It came in while the car was in the body shop getting the trim stuff installed and never got a chance to check the fit. Seems to fit really well, even on all of the non stock body stuff like the 9" chin spoiler, 4" sunoco hood, front exit exhaust, 15" Racecraft wing and the parachute.

Back from the show and I need to work on the rest of the To-Do list. First up is the custom cowl cover. It's all made up, just dropped it off for powder coating. Nothing like doing fabrication work on fresh paint.

Look into mid Atlantic.90 they have included top sportsman/dragster for this season. Would be a great place to race. We run local tracks to you. Cecil, atco, and maple grove. Rob kiester posts on here so if interested and need more info, look him up. I will definitely be sure to come check out all the hard work you put into this project

I was able to get the headlights wired over the weekend. Ran out of some supplies so I'll finish that up once they get delivered. The halo headlights are from Octane Lighting.

Re: 8.50 index build
The other day I noticed some oil drips on the car in a couple areas. Decided it would be best to pull the engine to better find the source and take care of the leaks. Nothing like going backwards sometimes.
