Front Engine Dragster built in five months
In December 2009 I got the idea that it would be fun to have a FED so I asked a few questions and read a few threads on the HAMB. After wieghing all the advice and suggestions I bought a set of Mark Williams blue prints and got started. With the help of a good friend or two I had a can the was ready to race at Eagle Field in May 2010.
Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010 - Twin-engine Dragster smoke-run.
Front engine, TWIN-engine dragster that was at the Jalopy Showdown Drags 2010. This was filmed at Beaver Springs Dragway. I had previously seen this car at the Wheels of Time show in Macungie PA in August. The car has two 392 supercharged HEMI engines. The smoke pass is almost required, not only because of the tires not being able to hold the power, but because it would surely break the drive train if it actually hooked!
The EVIL Twin Engine Dragster LIVES!

Mitch Allread: Don't Call it a Rat Rod... - BIG MUSCLE
It packs a 400 hp diesel out of a Ford F-350, a Dana 80 rear-end, and a look and feel that would make Max Rockatansky feel right at home. This is Mitch Allread's custom fabricated creation and it is, without a doubt, one of the coolest things on the road today. This is a machine that transcends the traditional hot rod formula by breaking down borders and setting its own stage.
Whereas most hot-rods are built by custom shops utilizing parts from mail order catalogs, Mitch took a different approach and fabricated just about everything on his ride by hand. Calling this a rat-rod would be an insult - a work of art however... that'd be just fine.

Video from us leaving the venue at the college in Chattanooga. Ride along from our point of view. Probably doesn't show a tenth of the cars that were there but still some very nice rides! Was yours in our video?

Zoomies on my Chevy
Ok so i wanted to hear what my engine sounded like with some Zoomies on it.
I had just recently performed some basic carburetor tuning when i had made this and i had switched to a single carburetor set up from a dual carb setup.
It seemed to have an all around improvement in throttle response, sound and power in general.
(surround sound recommended)
I can't wait for the 41 cab to be here and bolted down.
