Thanks for the nice comments guys. HISTORY: I purchased the car, New from New Era in 1993. Worked on it through the years on and off, With out making a pass. Had big time tire trouble so would not make a full pass. Would get bored with it and put the car away. Logged on here and got the bug big time after seeing so many fine, beautiful 1/4 scale cars and trucks. Made three passes with the car last summer but the car did not handle well. Over the winter Repainted body And fixed the steering problem. The pass you see on U-TUBE is the first pass that day 3.419ET with brakes on at 3/4 track. I will keep you all posted on more runs with the funny car in the weeks to come.

Thanks
Bryant

I added the Aluminum interior to keep the Koford traction compound from getting all over the windows, engine and driver. That Koford is real gooey, The tin work took a while to measure out and epoxy in.
