Great find, If my memory serves me right I had a set of those on 67 Meteor S33 that I wish I still had.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

I had a new 4 1/2" bolt pattern drilled in the wheels. Now they're usable.

31 of us rented the drag strip for the day Sunday and played with our cars. I ran a personal best of 11.59 @117.65 MPH. My previous PR was 11.70. The trans brake malfunctioned on the first run so I just left at an idle and stabbed it on the last yellow. 60' times are slow so there is that improvement to look forward to.

I had a grudge race with a friend with a perfect '55 Chevy with a blown small block. My 11.65 to his 11.66. My -.057 red light to his .113 green light. Would have been a great race if I could have waited just a hair longer.

A couple weeks ago the Meltdown Drags guys put on the 2nd annual Fallout Drags. I ran the dragster and did well setting a PR of 11.65 @ 118mph. Unfortunately the Powerglide let go. So I figured it was time to blow the digger apart and clean it up a bit. Painted the underside of the frame with John Deere yellow today. Tomorrow I'll flip it over and paint the top side.

The 9" rear end housing has been narrowed. next is resplining the axles. All the parts will be stored until spring when it will be reassembled. Now, on to a roadster project.

Was going to take the Powerglide to Tranny Tim yesterday. Unbolted it from the engine and the converter came off with the trans. All the flex plate to converter bolts backed out. There's nothing wrong with the transmission.
The axles can't be resplined because they neck down slightly so I'll order new ones from Ducthman.

sawzall, I'm building a "29 Chevy roadster pickup probably without a box. There's a build thread.

Bamamav, I find building hot rods is very relaxing.
