        Looks awesome! I can't wait to see it with all the body panels on.

          This is my first post, but I have a question. What does it cost to buy one of the drag pack cars? I guess if I have to ask then I really couldn't afford it right? Love the paint job.

            The kit will run you app $40,000.... Then you have to spend at least that much to finish it... Depending on how "carried away" you get it can really add up fast.. (Ask my wife!!!!! ) We were on budget until I got into the paint graphics.... But you are only doing this once.... With them being a limited production model now you have to buy them from the original owner... The 2009's are all sold as are the 50 2010's ... Or at least that is what I have been told....

                have made some progress in the last two weeks... Being gone during the week and only having the weekend to work has slowed us down... I do have a guy that is building my rear this week so Hopefully will get it installed next weekend... Also have brake line kits coming and then the wiring and piping will almost be done... Hopefully get here on the ground in another week or two......

















                More as I get it done!!!!!

                  Wow, this sure taking a long time!!! But progress is being made.... Have about 90% of the wiring and piping done.. All suspension parts are on the way so I can get her back on the ground... Engine is coming along so hopefully won't be more than a couple of months before we can test n tune......

                      Car is looking amazing! If you ever make it to Brandenton Motorsports Park please post up. I would love to make the 1 hr 30 min trip up there to see this car. Or even lend a hand in the pits if you are allowing.

                        Hey 67wildbill, these car are no where near ready to race when you get them... Here is a link to my website where I'm storing my photos.. You will get a better idea of hwo the car came and the whole build process.. Even the engine has to be re-built for stock eliminator racing...... A heck of a lot of work and money to finish one!!!!

                        I plan to run in Division 2 NHRA Stock Eliminator... Haven't seen the 2011 schedule yet but there has been a division race in Bradenton for as long as I can remember.. Sometime in mid February is normally the timeframe. But won't know until probably mid December the exact date.. Will post it when I know for sure... Would love to have you at the races... Mack

                          Can't wait to see what date it is, having a hard time finding die-hard mopar racers down here. Plus I will get to see what a fast Mopar looks like, unlike mine. :ROFLMAO:

                            I agree that die hard Mopar lovers are pretty hard to find but once you fine one there usually a few others around.... Don't know how fast she will be but we'll see come testing in September.. I hope....
