havent laid it out yet but the more info the better .,

I cant beleive the abuse . after all the effort and aggravation with the 440 kframe schumaker arruzzas and now the real hemi kframe ,.. I found a REAL hemi kframe 15 miles from my house ..

needless to say I bought it ,, he also happened to have 71 bbody stuff

got near to nOS 71 gtx wheel opening mouldings too from the same guy ..

Original takeoffs

I know the feeling, you just need to wake up earlier or make sure your invited guests are interested in your project.
It's coming along nice, where are you planning on racing on the 25th?

I had to do all that too, while finding excuses to sneak in the Masters and the Rangers game. I did use the dogs to get in the garage to do some quick things throughout the day. If it wasn't a challenge, would it be as much fun

Come on already! Get that thing out in the sunlight where we can see it. And a few smokey burn out pics would be nice too.

Car looks great. Can't wait to see the time results and magazine coverage of the FAST and PURESTOCK events.

I have a Ralley Red 71 GTX with AG/auto that I wanted to do this too. Even picked up a 71 Hemi block.

My A12 is in line 1st though.
