    There's a few pictures of the car the last day of drag week 2014, the air in Tulsa was really thick, and it did pull the front wheels. Most of the time, it's really close to, but not quite. Which is exactly what I want it to do! Wheelies impress the kids, but they don't make you go any faster.

    Great shot, Malc! It looks like the front tires are JUST on the ground but like 1 ounce more weight on the rear bumper would result in a wheelie. I love this build!

    Patrick, it's OK if you move your lips as you read it. No one will be there to see it.

    When I got mine I thought it's a shame that the cover pic gets cut off by the subscription address box. Better get a newsstand copy to fram.

    When I was kid I would look in Hot Rod, or any magazine and wonder how this happens. As I got older and was somewhat exposed to how it works, and I honestly got a bit jaded. You see cars by super-builders like Chip Foose and others who would get contracted to build a zillion dollar cars and, of course, that would be in a magazine.
    Then I see those cars in real-life, and wow, they are amazing, and rightfully, should be in a magazine. This is then followed by disappointment with the nicest cars never getting driven so who knows if those works of art actually function.
    The other cars in magazines have the parts that various vendors are actively trying to sell, nothing against this, it keeps the industry moving.

    That said, every so often, a car NOT matching the criteria of “high-dollar build”, or “parts showcase” gets some attention, a great car build using creativity, cleverness, a vision, and even more importantly, IT WORKS AMAZINGLY WELL!
    Well deserved, congratulations.

    This!
