Back story to this one. Started b4 I got sick and ended up 62 days in hospital. When I got out I guess I tried to get back to it tooooooooo soooooon. Friends, I screwed this one up from top to bottom. The body work is worse than any of my builds. Paint sorta the same. Then I dropped something on the roof, then I dropped this whole thing. You guys get the picture yet? LOL. Anyway, I said I'd post my builds, good or bad, so here you are. Big block, q-chg, big tires and all. Feel free to tear me up, lol......Rett

I like it! Looks just like an old 1/4 miler to me.

Nothing wrong that I can see.  If it was purty it would be a show car, not a racecar.
When I win the Powerball I will switch to the real ones.
