Wow. Not much interest in this one. Its correct guys. Its not suppose to have a roll bar or any other racing equipment in the interior. It ran A/stock. It even had full factory exhaust with mufflers. Cutouts were allowed though.

I'm watching, Tex. I didn't bother to throw down some arcane post saying so, but It's an interesting subject. Cheers.

Good looking Poncho.  I really like the older door-slammer drag cars.  You may not have got many comments because the way this site works is often frustrating.  If someone else posted a build within a few seconds of your post, then your post went away, or at least to the index list.  I have often seen a build that interested me, but when I came back to it a few minutes later it was gone and I had to search the index for it.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

I'll be watching this build as it finishes up! Great subject matter as usual from your workbench Tex! And as always, the quality of your work is top-notch! Looking forward to seeing it cross over the finish-line.

On the bench:  '63 Studebaker Avanti.

Yes, and being a 2 door sedan is also key.
