Default Dumbo The Flying Elephant

I have a few pictures of our new car, a 2015 Drag Pack 392 N/A. I'm working on it daily. I retired the pink car the end of last year. We plan on racing the new car soon, we hope. More later.

While Dumbo doesn't quite have the ring of "AARP" Cuda at least the little fella is an elephant and most of the caricatures of Dumbo have pink ears at least so we'll have to settle for that much pink. Good luck with it; will miss seeing you at the Gators.

Larry, You could still paint the Challenger pink for "others to see". Or white. Thought you may find these definitions interesting and food for thought:

"The elephant in the room" is a problem that everyone knows is there but no one wants to acknowledge. A "white elephant" is a troublesome or costly possession that's hard to get rid of. A "pink elephant" is something that people are said to see quite often when they're drunk. It's a drunken hallucination.

Looking forward to seeing it whatever way it's painted.

It will be fitted with Classic Instruments gauges. The one gauge I'm excited about is the Stock Eliminator Water Temperature Gauge, range 40*F to 220*F. John said Lance, Ben, and Jason Line helped in the development of the gauge at CI

Car is Viper Red, Stone White, and Staten Black

Thanks Ken

I pulled the dash out of it to clean and install new Classic Instruments gauges. Besides having water temp from 40* to 220* all the gages send information to the F.A.S.T. system, or as I understand it, it will work with the Holley system to record the data from all the gages.

From your first post from this thread. It has been the truth.

I admire everything about what your are doing except for how much it makes me feel like a slacker!

Thanks for sharing,

Im retired so my hobby fills most of my day. Racing is venue that us old people can still be somewhat competitive and I like that. I enjoy trying to catch up with all the great engine builders that have customers competing in the same class that I choose to run.

Thanks to Jeff Taylor I got to use a Total Seal ring filer, what a great piece of equipment. It wont change your life but it sure will make it easier and more accurate faster.
