    This is how she looked the day I brought her home. The previous owner had started the pro street build but a lot of the work was not to my liking or NHRA rules.

    Removed the old cage and started with the new:

    for the most part i have a rather large dislike for strip only cars, but it looks like you're doing a fair job so far and i wish you luck.

    This will be a street car that sees track time. It will be driven not a trailer queen. My philosophy is that boats are for trailers...lol. :)

    Got the steering done. Rebuilt box and new inner, outer tie rods, center link, pitman, and idler arms. Threw in a new set of drop spindles too.
