Hoo boy! 98 degrees today. That curtailed the work load. I did weld the axle to the frame. Made brackets for the tail lights and welded them in place. Looking around the garage I've got too many unfinished projects. The dragster and trailer will be going to a meet in Union Grove, Wisconsin the end of June. In August we have rented Rock Falls Raceway for a day. I want to have the Crosley ready for that. The Bantam is only a few hours away from a test drive.

So many toys, so little time
Bob, you have one of the best toy boxes around, and what's even better, you made them all yourself

Another baby step: fenders. Next will be more painting. Then we have to run the dragster up on it to determine how long the ramps must be. Hopefully they can be shortened, resulting in their being light enough of an old guy to carry. If they can be fairly short then I'll hinge them off the back and never carry a ramp again.

Picked up this 8" rear end recently for a future project.

Yes, zz, too many toys. It's hard to sell when there is a lot of blood, sweat and more blood in them. Not very much money though.

Brushed the second coat of yellow on today and it looks pretty spiffy. Next, I'll have to work out the ramp arrangement.

A while back the spare tire on my Chevy truck was so rusted under the bed that I had to cut it out with a torch. Then one rim rusted through and went flat. So today a set of 4 rims and tires came up on Facebook Marketplace. Picked them up for 60 bucks. Yes, this is truly the rust belt.

Wonít lose that trailer in the parking lot! Looks great Bob, I love the color, got a weakness for yellow.

I think the auto makers and the salt/ chemical guys have an unholy alliance to use more product than they need so they can sell more new cars.
