Kids ain't cheap! That's for sure!

Jason, it was really great seeing you and your dad at the BBQ! I would really love it if we could all hang out at a car show. I really liked your dad. Super cool guy! Maybe one of So Cal Novas MFR's? Ultimately, I think you, your dad and I need to plan GGC! THAT would be WAAAAYYYY too much fun!

Sometime next year. It's a track built car. More road race than anything but, hopefully, it'll do OK on the Ol' 1320!

I'm not even going to get into this discussion because you don't know all the details of the build or what I have done on my own so lets just leave it at that!:sad:
In any case Ironworks is installing the gussets(Hey Jay! I designed them! Does that count?!?
) to firm up the front end. One of Rodgers clients wanted to scale his car and was nice enough to let Rodger scale some of the other projects so we got the '66 up on the scale and checked to see how much it weighed so far! Most all of the major components are in the car so I'm guessing with the glass and interior it should add around 300 more pounds!:)

Gussets


Scaling the car!

Wow, lookin good, I wish my Street Stock dirt car scaled that good. I'll bet it's a pushin fool in left hander's. Perfect for a high horse mota.
