I found this picture on the HAMB of my Henry J at the Car Craft Street Machine Nationals in 1982 and thought I would share it here. I know it;s the same car by the custom rear wheel openings it still has.
I have talked to the person who sold the Opel to the guy I got it from. They BOTH KNOW the guy who started the project back in the '70's ..... then like so many "drag cars" being built and not finished and others that were put away due to drag racers moving on to later model cars due to rule changes, etc, etc. So it sat in a barn for 30 years untouched. The last two owners finally got it "strip-worthy".That's great! Nice to find an old pic of your ride!
I also prefer the "traditional radiused wheel well openings. As nice as the flares were installed and all of the time/work it took whoever to install them I didn't hesitate to get out the sawzall and cut them off........... I plan on cutting the electrical conduit wheel openings out, filling in the sheet metal as needed and cutting traditional radiused wheel openings into the quarters.
