Project Violent Valiant sure is coming along. We recently caught up with builder Kevin Tully at his shop, Ho Rod Chassis and Cycle in Illinois and he told us about the recently progress on the car, when it is heading to paint and what’s been done to keep the driver safe in the even that things go a little sideways on him during a run. The answer was that there’s a lot going on with the safety situation here. The Valiant is going to be a very fast street and ultimately it will be used in competition on the track as well so rather than cheat and slap a bunch of heavy duty safety stuff in the car at the last minute before we want it, Kevin decided to augment it all now in the building phase so when it comes time to race it, the car will be ready and raring to go.
Along with the safety there was the fabrication of the exhaust headers which Kevin had 40 hours on to build. When you see the photos of the headers below you will understand why he had 40 hours into them. They are not store bought pieces…not by a longshot. The car will sport a NASCAR style exhaust with the oval shaped openings announcing their presence on both side. Rather than blather on and on about how sweet this whole setup is, scroll down to check out the photo and see what’s new!
