    Shes running and driving around the block! Videos up on the Facebook page.

    Trying to sort out some trans stuff, before heading to the Street Car Takeover event in OKC this weekend.
    But all and all still pumped!

    See the thread about "has anyone ever been turned away..." and email Hot Rod and get on the wait list, and show up and race.

    **UPDATE** 2015..... (Bringing this thread back from the dead)

    So, after many reasons in my life as to why this car was put away on hold.
    - Death of my business partner in a car accident pushed me away from cars for a few years.
    - I moved homes 3 times
    - And then the birth of my first child (daughter)


    HOWEVER, I have to say the car is finally ready to burn some corn again.

    To bad I was about a week or so late to sign up for this years drag week
    It would have been so amazing to finally take this car on the ONLY event I ever built it for.

    But hey, I am just happy that I am not just a week or so away from it running again.

    (Please LIKE its Facebook Page, to see all the photos of this build)

    Sadly I am going to have to say no....

    I had a PILE of "life events" land on me this year, between moving, and other factors......she is sitting lacking a few parts that I waited to long to order....

    1) The new ProEFI computer
    2) The new stand alone wiring harness

    Could I slam it all back together and make it... maybe.
    But would it be as perfect as I want it.... nope.



    So at this point, I am going to have to give up my spot, and honestly its got me so bummed out, its silly.

    I'm bringing this back because I'm curious as to whether we're gonna see it this year at DW? The Caddy was cool but this looks like a hoot too.

    Its the last one that will ever be created.

    Sadly Ross Machine said the demand isn't there for them, and have discontinued this product after they sold me mine. I actually lucked out that this unit was already sold, however the buyer before me couldn't come up with the funds after weeks of holding the part. So I waited patiently for the call and was stoked when they said I could buy it.

    That made the best story.... I wish she would have taken if for a spin for a while. If she is there next year, I will bring it back just so she can take it to dinner.

    Here is the newest goodie I got. Just waiting on the new "Billy badazz" T400 to show up....

    (The Toyota to T400 adaptor plate... and the Flywheel that will allow me to run standard GM Converters)

    Yup, I took it to KCIR on Sat.... and then ran it on Sunday. I though I had my fuel starvation problem licked with her, but I guess not. She is still only happy when she runs on the 2 barrels. Maybe over winter I will get motivated and finally go though the carb, and replace the fuel pump. But since she runs perfect (other then floored) I doubt I will mess with it.

    Yes, thats funny. My father always makes some wise comment like that when I tell him I am taking it down the track. LOL.
    I just enjoy that I can take it out night after night to dinner, or the bars... and in the last two years, and 15,000 miles she has never let me down.

    Thanks... the adapter plate for the T400 trans should be here today, so I am getting more excited by the day.

    However, I came across a 1969 Mustang that I don't think I can live without, so I might be a little distracted if I make that purchase.
