Cannonball 2011 IS DONE! COME CHECK OUT THE RACERS!
Posted by Jantrix on Monday, November 14, 2011 5:40 AM

Thanks for looking. Our 2011 Cannonball Run CBP has concluded. This year 15 of 35 builders made it to the starting line and they did some super work. Please check it out and leave some ataboys for our racers.

I have heard rumors that the Cannonball will be running next year, so if you didn't get a chance to participate, you may yet get an opportunity.

Alright got a sunny day and took some pictures. It's sitting on a piece of sandpaper atop a 5 gallon bucket, if anyone wants to copy the idea feel free to do so.

The antenna and hood pin wires are additions made by me from 32 gauge jewelry wire. 

 The tags are 80/81 Virginia tags made in MSpaint the AAR stands for the type of Cuda it is and RIP stands for rest in piece which applies to me for it being more car than I can probably handle. I hope there's nothing wrong with the tag.

 That huge air cleaner hides all the work I put into the engine bay so I took it off. I tried very hard to make it as accurate as possible, all wires and hoses here (aside from the largest one) are made from jewelry wire. The engine is colored aluminum implying that I went through the engine and spiced it up, thus the rip in the tag, lol. If anyone wants to see some more pictures of it both outside and inside here's a link to the photo album. I hope I'm doing this right if not just tell me how to fix it.

Anyway this is my entry it's been a blast building and can't wait to see everyone else’s rides finished, good luck to all.

Cannonball run CBP entry '70 AAR Cuda lightly modded. Also working on a '69 Daytona (acursed paint still wont go on right) In a box is a 68 Firbird. Which I will do sometime in the future and will be rebuilding a '57 Nomad into a resto-mod. There are alot more I'd like to make I just don't have the money.

Heres my entry, AMT 70 1/2 Camaro with scratchbuilt fender flares, exhaust, cowl hood, and custom grill made out of photo-etch mesh and the kit surround. I also used minilite wheels from competition resins and a detail master distributor. Awesome builds everyone! I can't wait to see them all!

Team zenrat here.  We've gone all American this time with a '77 Chevy van.  Sorry about the dirt.  No time to clean her following the shakedown runs.


You can't really see it but there's a blown 454 cube Big Block Chevy up front.  That's kept supplied with go juice by a manifold & pump system via the stock tank from four 50 gallon drums - I won't be stopping for a while!  There's also 2 spare wheels tucked in there so flats won't knock us out either.

She's riding on '68 'vette suspension front & rear so handling is an improvement over stock (although "fuel slosh" makes things interesting when the drums start to get low!

I started with the Revell Race Team Van & Trailer kit plus a Revell '68 'vette roadster.  Wheels & tyres are from The Parts Box, drums are from Auslowe and seats are from the AMT '66 Galaxy.  Pretty much everything else is scratch built of from my parts boxes.

Good luck, drive safe and I'll see y'all at the finish line...

It's the 21st Century. Where's my Jet Pack & Flying Car? On the bench - detritus mainly.

And heeeere weee go. 62 409 Bel-Air with a few extras under the hood, custom headers and a sneaky exhaust that lets us bypass the mufflers when were rollin. 69 Camaro buckets and Console with not a whole lot else in the interior except a Custom rollcage. Widened steelies, dropped suspension and a bunch of attitude. And no I didnt forget the exterior rear view mirror, we dont really need to see what we just passed, and if its red and blue lights behind us we dont plan on pulling over anyway so why pay attention to them.

The personalized license plate is an abbreviation of my brothers nickname...he hated his nickname, which makes it all the more special.

Well gang for a while I didn't think it was gonna see the starting line, but here she is.

This build features a two tone Duplicolor paint job. The chassis has had a front subframe and suspension, rear suspension and two crossmembers from a Revell '68 Corvette added. The Baldwin Motion style cowl hood scoop was added to the Stude hood. The engine is a 427 from the same Corvette kit. The exhaust and roll cage are entirely scratchbuilt.

More pics and the WIP shots can be found here. http://s53.photobucket.com/albums/g73/Jantrix/53%20Studebaker/

Guys, 

Here is my finished Fiat 500F. It's period all right. Which means, well, save me a beer at the finish line. I may take awhile getting there. LOL. Was tremendous fun to build with you all. I am in awe of the custom jobs you fellas did. I have tons to aspire to! Thanks for including me. This has been only my 2nd build as an adult. And I learned a lot.

Hey Jonno, glad you made it to the final thread where it belongs. It would be a shame if that fine Fiat missed the voting.

Hi everyone,

 My tribute to Farrah build is a 1976 Cobra II powered by a 289 small block automatic combo from the AMT George Barris Surf Woody kit. It features a cross ram dual 4 bbl intake fed by twin Paxton/McColloch superchargers. The Ford nine inch is from a wrecked '69 Shelby held in place by truck arms from an AMT '65 Galaxie kit with coil over shocks also from the Surf Woody. Wheels are resin 15" Magnum 500s from Reliable Resins, wrapped in 50 series BF Goodrich T/A radials from a Revell Monroe Handler kit.

Thanks, and good luck to everyone!!!

That's it folks. Dec 2 is upon us. No further entries will be considered for popular vote.

However I am not going to lock this thread so that racers can edit their posts to include further explanation if they wish to.

Also I'd like to encourage racers who didn't make it on time, to still post up their completed builds on this thread if they wish, in the spirit of community that the Cannonball CBP's have become known for.
