After coming across all of your builds, I can only say two things.

 

1.  You are a very, very warped individual.

 

2.  Will you marry me?

Roar, nice build! I had to Google "Rat Trap" to find out whether it was a real car or a figment of your imagination. :laugh2:  I found some You Tube videos of it running very strong. It might have run as strong as "Pure Hell."

The real car, Roar's terrific build, is based on, get's a lot of page time in the awesome Hot Rod Deluxe magazine.

From the new issue.

Rick Lorenzen's incredible homage to Lions Drag Strip.

I really would like to see that museum. My cousin took me to Lions many times. That display brings back memories. Especially

since many of the signs actually came from the old track.

For those who get CarsTV, there is a pretty good show about the Lions Dragstrip Museum, with some good video

taken back in the day. It airs today at 3:30pm and 9:30 pm, CST. (Ch. 280 on AT&T)
