    My guess was Buckey's car too. AH is a bad ass deal but very competitive. If you have not done the whole NHRA class legal thing before it might be alot to bite off at once. Why not a B body hemi car and run in SS/ BA. Might be able to just put a legal motor in one of your cars and make the car legal too and see how you like the NHRA circus... it is fun but also filled with bullshit often... If you like it then get the AH car. NHRA is very different than NSS.

    WV Hillbilly
    Ogburn car
    Housers car
    Wolkowitzs Eathquake 1
    Warfish II
    The DePillo cuda, Jennings chassis, original bo29 car
    Dixie Hemi
    The Bogner cuda was for sale for a bit
    The "Mystical Cuda Ent" has been off/on listed.
    Probably others as well that I'm not remembering. 250k I think is a little high. Maybe if you threw money at chassis/ paint etc. it can be done quite a bit cheaper or like said between Housers/wolkowitz and Warfish those car are top 5 and can be bought turn key.

    Investing 100-250 thousand dollars in one of those cars and racing for an engine block and a trophy doesn't sound like a good idea to most of us. But having a name like "SUPERSTOCKRACER" gives us this allusion that you are truly a S/S racer and not a Nostalgia Super Stock racer or a bracket racer. I say buy the car of your dreams and go for it to fulfill them.

    I don't remember, I thought it said turn key, not positive thou,
    seen one in WV for $55k not sure the total deal either, whether it was turn key or not,
    most that I've seen & if they are real are over $100k turnkey min.,
    clones are available way cheaper turnkey, seen a few recently
    it's on Racingjunk.com under 1968 Barracuda/Drag cars/Super Stockers

    250K is what we penciled in to build the car and campaign it for one year. These guys change converters and rear gears more than the best bracket racer swaps carb jets. The spares a competitive team carries is insane. Buying one and running it for a year will still suck up over half that number.

    I toyed with the idea of this class about tens years back, when I had the money to spend/waste!LOL

    I think your level of happiness will really depend on how close to competative you want to be? I know you already run a few hemis, so you know the costs of those. But the tricks engineered into the legal 438cid motors take that cost to a whole new level!

    You couldn't run with a better bunch of racers and you might be famous one day.

    My 2 cents.
    You never know
