Glad I decided to weigh my choices before too much work. I need to start over with different trucks. Both are over without adding weight. Oops.

What about Humvees and El Camino's?

  • Discussed earlier.. no El Camino/Ranchero.... Not sure about Hummers — Traction-Event
  • Sorry I missed this...Hummers are more of a military vehicle to me...this race is for American built, V-8 powered trucks. I mean, if the Hummer makes the size requirements, I wouldn't kick it out, but, it would look out of place — 72_Chevy_C10

Built this one with a veteran racer in mind.... 52 Chevy... he would have built a Ford...

  • Yes he probably would have. Nice job TE! — Dadvball
  • Awesome...A Sloppy Jalopy! Smitty might have built it as a Gasser though....hmmm, it just so happens that I have a gasset pickup on my workbench...maybe Smitty will have a whole team :) — 72_Chevy_C10
  • Anyone know what Smitty is up to these days? — redlinederby

Well, I was going to contribute this rig to 'Team Smitty', but I looked around a little bit and found the fixings of a more appropriate 'Sloppy Jalopy'...

So, this little Model A pickup will be my Smitty rig

I just ran a couple test passes with those two trucks...the Model A might need a few tweaks. But, the Gasser Chevy is bringing some speed...you guys will want to be on your 'A' game.

Let the call-outs begin :)

What about '56 Flashsider's?

  • Check the length...they might be over 3". As long as they are 3" or less overall length, you are good to go — 72_Chevy_C10

I built a similar truck to this one for the first Muscle Truck race, so I'll have to change this one up a little :)

Okay, so you guys can probably figure out what is going to be happening here :) Not that there were ever many '56 Ford F100 Gassers ever built...but, heck, it should be fun! And, I happen to know that there is another old Ford Gasser pickup in the works as well :)

Gasser pick up.... building this one...

Had to shorten the chassis a little bit to make this work...and narrow it...and glue in a brace along the top to strengthen it

But, it's looking pretty cool...I'll have a better idea how it will look once I get some wheel on it. But, that can wait til tomorrow 

  • hacking and whacking... gonna pay off. looking proper — Traction-Event
