Hey Folks!
New guy here.‚   Got an invite from James 'Hippie' Bush, so.........



Anyway, my build is about half scratch work, 1/4 restored parts and the balance kit bashing.‚   I figured I build a Ford POWERED by a Ford!‚   The motor is a Y block 312 w/ a McCulluck (sp?) belt driven supercharger, similar to the high perf TBird.‚   The tires were hand 'whitewalled' by a friend-Firestone fronts and double 7" piecrust slicks (AMT originals) rear.‚   The build is fully wired and plumbed and is part of a vintage drag 'team' build I did.‚   The last pic shows but the Fiat isn't Ford and the trailer was scratch built, so they're not in the contest.‚   This was my first attempt at a weathered/distressed/beat-up paint job.‚   Fun build but like always, it took me forever!‚   Hope you folks like 'her'! Walt.

Cool "T"! The dual rear wheels are something different. I like the weathered finish and the little details.

Fantastic!! WHERE did you find the blower at?! I do so love the early years of drag racing, from the '50s up to '69. Everything was experimental, guys hunting around to find the stuff that worked. This is a great representation of that!
