    It's so over the top that it can't help but be cool. Can't get much smaller, and even a stock 350 smog motor would make it fast, so a little more will be very interesting, especially with the short wheelbase!

    I agree it will be very interesting. Test of square frame work and building accuracy. Fun to see how it goes.
    I made this cross member to support the leafs and found out the rear end drive shaft yoke is right behind the curve.
    So I had to cut it in position and swing the curve 180 so it clears the drive shaft. The orig rear was a lot higher in the tunnel.
    1 step forward and 2 steps back but its still progress.

    I find these situations are what make every build unique......challenging and ultimately....rewarding. Nice work Mario.

    more pics of last winter
    I lopped off the front chassis area so I can get to the sheet metal work at the kick panels and make room for the chassis 2x3 rails.
    I needed good sheet metal to weld to.
