24dodge, I'm very familiar with that rail and the owner. He's a good guy and is having a great time with his car.
Earthman, That's a really cool early dragster. Too bad no sanctioning body will let the old ones run.
BH, looks like that one has an updated cage and can be raced. That car is very much faster than the little piece I'm building.

I got the shoulder bar in and the tubes from it to the frame. Then I went to bend the roll bar hoop and got all cocky and didn't review the instructions. So I wasted my last length of tubing. Back to the steel yard tomorrow. I want to thank Terry & Lee (Tator on RRR) for lending their tubing notcher to me. Sure beats the old die grinder method I've used in the past.

The view from the front. After screwing up the top hoop, I started cutting out the boxing plates. A 6 foot cut on 1/8" plate with a sawzall sure gets my ears ringing and my hands tingling. Saturday I went to my friend Farmer Don's to borrow a long tailshaft 3 speed. It was under a pile of snow. After prying and poking and even hitting it with a sledge hammer I had to be satisfied to take measurements off of it. I ain't coming out of there until the spring thaw.

I got my groove back and correctly bent some pipe today. No scrap! Also got the boxing plates cut out and tacked in place. There is one roll cage hoop to go. If I can't get my snow bound driveline out of the junkyard, I'll be stalled on this project for a while. Gonna go put some pressure on old Al at the yard tomorrow.

Very nice Bob W. I really like these cars and I'm glad you are building one so that I can follow along.
