About 5 years ago I bought a set of "double" beadlocks for my old beat up 67 Nova. The goal was to mini-tub it and spray the old small block that was in it.
Well...as they say its a slippery slope.
Thanks to my wife and family. They aren't into any of this stuff and its all they heard about from me for the past few years. They mostly tolerate it :-)
Thanks to Chris and Jordan Storlie of Storlie Brothers Racing a.k.a. JS Racecars. These guys did all the metal work, fabrication, welding, design, etc. They're artists and engineers. The car doesn't look good on the outside but the fitment of the pipe and components is perfection thanks to the Storlie boys. A lot of the parts came off of their bad *** black all steel 200 MPH 55 Chevy. There is nobody around here (Oregon) that does the kind of work they do. I'm lucky to have them 15 minutes away. (and they don't mind when we leave our beer cans all over the shop)
Thanks to my "crew" Brett Davis, Scott Davis, Ron Huegli and our leader for all the support and encouragement. In the video below thats Scott working the throttle.
Thanks to the AFP boys (Walter Grosse, Jeff Hryciw and Jeff Malar) for the examples you've provided over the years (even if they were Fords and Buicks)
Thanks to Scott James (aka video ninja) for the info and advice over the years. You've been there and done that with your 8 second street car.
Thanks to Darren Hall for the smoking deal on the beadlocks...after all that's what started it all :-)
A few words about the car: Its a twin turbo 540, Dart block and heads, Precision 7675 turbos, 160 injectors (thanks Brian Robards) its a Big Stuff 3 computer (Thanks Eric Eddy) its got a Turbo 400 (Thanks Bill Gee) and a Strange Fab9 with 3:50 gears. Its got 275's on it.
Its only legal for 8.50's and I hope to get there in 2013.
