That one reminds me of the one I built all through high school and my father blew up. I spent 3 years building every part of that car and it took him a trip around the block to over rev it by 2 grand and blow the engine to trash. It red lined at 9K but the tack showed he had taken it to 11K. It also had a fiberglass tilt forward front cap, doors and trunk lid plus a tube front axial. It was my first real race car and turned the 1/4 in very low 11 sec range. I actually ran 1/10 of second off of a national record in 65. It ran in the old NHRA B gas class.

Well did he help replace the engine or use that as a training moment to instill the point about you don't loan cars out to people, even dad's?
