That looks like a lot of work, good luck with it Brian.

 

I especially like the "Dodge girls have fun" license plate frame. :)

 

I keep a Dodge girl in the trunk for those occasions when it's time for "more fun"

 

It's the previous owners plate, the car was a hand me down. It is a one family car it's entire life and grandpa gave it to his grand daughter.....hence Dodge Girls Have More fun

Yep, the Polaras definitely look mean and bad-ass when they're tired for the drag strip.

 

Great car, LX! Best of luck with the resto... already looking forward to updates - topic followed! :)

i gotta admit i was really dissappointed in not seeing any results from that intake.

me too man. Me too. A year of crunching numbers and building it, if I had the money I'd buy it back

Do you have any pics of that intake? I remember seeing it, how did it work out? Performance wise?

I want to be the first one to invite you to the next MSHS event. lol

 

I STRONGLY doubt I will be anywhere near ready for the next MSHS. In fact, I will go out on a limb and say I won't make any MSHS this year.

 

That is unless I get some very generous sponsorship offers. If anyone wants to sponsor the project and get their name in the article....I am willing and able. I already had a couple vendors kick me down some very cool stuff :)

 

It is going to take A LOT of money to get it there. Even with parts at cost and cheap labor.

I'm sure they would let me run. But twice as sure it would be considered exhibition only. My current plans would put the car at 3400# with me in it. I guess it would be just a hair heavier that BB :)

Looks like a cool project. I've got three 68 Darts sitting around waiting for me to get motivated on, I hadn't thought about using a new Hemi motor as I have 340 to 440's laying around. More and more guys are doing it though and getting good results. I look forward to your continued updates.
