Breathing Fire!!!

The 63 really was a stunning beauty. I figure next year I’ll start looking for the next build. I have a few different year models and am seriously contemplating converting it to a dual motor Tesla running gear. People will freak when they see an old 40’s or 50’s sled eat a modern muscle car and do it ever so quietly lol

Noooooooo!!!!!!! Electric and fire bad lol. Now my old drag car, she was a fire breather. I’m pretty sure I still have a pic my daughter took of one of the last times I raced it before pulling the running gear out and selling the chassis.

There she is. 618 cu in Steve Schmidt racing engine with twin 70mm Turbonetics turbos buried under the hood. She ran consistent low 8’s at around 187. Hands down, the easiest driving drag car I ever ran and still miss it but I just don’t have time anymore.

Thank you for sharing the photos Robert. One of the side benefits of this forum is getting to know the long standing members and their interesting lives outside the truck cab. Cool.

It’s fun to look back at the old cars and trucks. Back when they were truly things of beauty with body lines that identified every model. From the big rounded fenders of the 30’s and 40’s to the fins of the 50’s and into the muscle of the 60’s. There was something amazing about automotive design back then that’s been lost in the modern era with the exception of the super and hyper cars today. I just wish I had the time and money to retire about a dozen or so and drive a different one every day of the week.

So true...

I bought an SUV last year. There are times I’ve walked up to and tried to enter a car only to realize it wasn’t mine, but looked almost identical.

Cookie cutter cars. No distinction or character in mainstream automotive.

Saw this working cabinet dump truck in Oklahoma a few months ago. Thought I'd accidentally deleted the pic but found this yesterday.
