Howdy Howdy to all you Drag listers out there.
Well its been about 8 months since my last update on my "Stained Class" Injected Nitro A/Fuel Funny Car so here is
a little bit of what has been happening, and what new plans are in store for this Hot Rod.
The biggest update is the paint scheme that has been worked up by our own one and only John Bockelman, John aquired a new program and
was just getting it set up when I contacted him last month to see if he was interested in helping me to create the vision I had for my car and all from a former popular Funny Car from 1976/77. John said " gimme what you have", so I sent him a pic of the funny car that had the paint scheme I wanted to do and told John all the color changes we would need to do and several little add ons to the existing and John did not falter one bit and produced
several first drafts and renditions and in no time at all we had a finished paint scheme. There will be a couple of signage add ons later,
but for now WE HAVE IT, it looks awesome and it will be a real eye catcher,...Thank you again John..!!!!!
2ndly ,..My motor combination has always been a little off mainly due to the fact that I purchased a complete motor turnkey
that was a blown alcohol motor, Well the more I kept pondering the what if`s, it seemed pretty clear I should be trying to acquire a purpose built A/Fuel motor with the correct components or at least purchase the internals and I would still use my block as it has the correct Cylinder bore that is common for the combo.
So now I have battled back and forth in my head, get another motor or change this one..?? So I could be Purchasing the alcohol small chamber fat heads, and also along with a 3.5 stroke crankshaft, and the longer rods and the correct A/Fuel type pistons, Life begins again with 96% in the Tank.
Or,.I sell this motor and buy a complete long block.....OMG..
You guys think keeping up with me is tough or near impossible..lol.. try being in my shoes
when most of the time my decision making is done at the spare of the moment or on a Whim...too funny,.
.I am not called "The Bic Filler" show for nothing....lmao
so here are a couple of Pics if you havent seen them already on that other addiction..lol
