Picked this up last month and have started making it “mine” way. I sold this car as stock roller 16 17 years ago and Johnny made a real descent race car out of it. Wouldn’t do that to it today. Anyway had the motor trans in it today for header fit and to make a front motor plate. I may not get to use my old Dougs headers as the turn back towards the motor and that doesn’t allow a diaper to fit around the pan. May have to call good ole Mr. Wilson. Still have to pull the motor back out and freshen up. Lots to do. Heres a few pics.

Thank you Ray!! Shan It’s got all its original glass in it. All steel from the firewall back. It is a ladder bar back half car. I’m gonna lower the door bar about 6” and add dash bar.

Nice Barry, Looks like that’s gonna keep you busy for a while. Are you let your daughter drive it? Or are you going to be the pilot? Reminds me a little of the car Dick McKenzie has that Russ once owned....
Sure is funny sometimes how we make the big circle and get back what we once had! I’m waiting for my circle to come full turn to get back some of the stuff I Once had. Just think though if we only had one vehicle or a whole life it might be a little boring. Trading upgrading changing directions always makes for a lot of fun stories, and sometimes some big headaches. Good luck and keep us posted.:good Soon time to burn a tire!!!:burnout
