Very cool! I saw a thread on HAMB (I think?) about your car and how it was once a high school shop project by a very dedicated instructor? Am I even close on that? Very cool history!

WELCOME!!!! It is sooooooo cool that they is so much "history" about your car. Even more so that you are bringing it BACK to life again. It sure has been thru some tough-times since it graced the drag strip when it was first built. Looking forward to hearing more about your gasser.

40 stude update:i ran the car at our test and tune day at Mission Drag strip near my home, she ran like a champ , hooked real hard and popped the wheels about 5", now i know she drives straight, hooks up ,stops and steers the way she should( first time running since 1974!) 12.23 @ 102 , cant wait to pull the old ski/drag boat engine and get the serious motor in it now!

had a fantastic trip to the CHRR in Bakersfield , got some great photos of the car on the track early thursday morning, great reunion with the original builders / drivers of the car. so many cool cars and great people.

heres a few pics
