The tape is covering the hose clamps that hold the weight on, don't try to get away with that today!

Last I heard, this one is available. It's near me in NY and currently has a blown Pontiac. I'm guessing he wants to sell it complete, but if you have interest I could get his contact info and you and him can hash out the gory details.




Thanks for the reply. I am a member on Glenn's site and he is going with a blown power plant next. Great guy, VERY nice rail too...
I'm keeping an eye on a few right now...time will tell if I find one...

Dragsters, from the 1950's and 1960's...

I almost hate to post this link, because some of you won't get a lick of work done today...
