        Looks good! Are all Coronets green? Been a fan of yours since the blue GTX! This will be my first car to take to a drag strip. Gary of Magnum Superchargers built my engine and is doing the chassis work. He’s an old school Drag Racer. Going to be asking a lot of questions here as well! Plan to have running by January. I’m hoping for 10s.

          You did your frame like I did, breaking through the rear seat footwell, much stronger I think. Are you doing just roll bar or cage? If you do an "A" pillar tube I'd like to see how you go through the dash. Nice work!

            Gary is an Old school drag racer, he’s done the US Car Tool connectors but I wanted him to do it the way he did back when he built his cars. We are just doing a roll bar.

                Makes me happy seeing someone else using QA1 K-member.
                Solidifies my decision.

                it’s probably over kill, but they are made 10 miles from my house in Lakeville Mn. And I was in a Moter Trend focus group with a guy that worked there. Plus more room for headers. I want to run ‘stock suspension’ big block, no power adders at drag week but I think the mini tubs are not allowed in that class anymore. Have to check this years rules.
