I just thought i would show off my old race car i was building.
looks sweet! What do you mean "Was" Building?
thats ****ing sick!
I sold the car about 4 or 5 years ago to pay off my credit cards so i could buy a house.
Before this car i was building a 1949 chevy truck that i ended up giving up to build this nova, i will post a pic of the truck here for you all to see as well. I took the drivetrain from this truck and used it in the nova.
damn that sucks you had to give it up, those are both sweet as hell.
It's only a matter of time before i build something else. This time i think i'm going to build a sick 69 camaro with a full tube chassis and a blown bbc injected on alcohol.
Looked like you were building a Pro Mod Car? Looked nice.
Thats a sick truck. Ive owned 2 =1952 trucks like that,,,one was a Chevy,and one a Gmc . We put a camaro sub frame in one . Just curious what type of deal you did for the front suspention , did you use the mustang 2 kit on it?
I used a 77 camaro subframe and then built my own frame in the back and had a ladder bar coilover set-up. By the way, this car was registered to drive on the street. The license plate said 6TEASE6, the car is now in Lodi somewhere.
If you had it to do over again, would you have dont the Mustang 2 setup? I think i would have . It was a PITA
The mustang set up isn't large enough for the weight of the vehicle. I would never down size the braking on a vehicle that is getting close to 1300hp under the hood.
i had a '49 Chevy too. here's a pic of ours right after we brought it home. at this point, the rollback was still in the driveway. paid $200 for it.
had a 12 bolt out of a Blazer or K10 out back, and a 350/350.
some heavier coils, and one of the many aftermarket brake setups on it and call it good.
That still leaves a very small spindle and bearings and a very small A-frame.
with 1300hp on tap, are you really driving it on the street? i would assume probably not, at which point, small bearings, and small a arms mean low weight and low rotating mass.
Yes, it was going to be street driven as it was registered and had license plates on it.
The plate on the Nova was 6TEASE6 and the truck was NSANETY
I'm pretty sure I would kill for a 66-67 chev II, I now officially hate you...
You can stop hating me now, i sold this car about 4 or 5 years ago.
Fixed it for you
