As far as Del Mar goes, that would be very cool but it's a long haul for a weekend.
Hey Walt, if you need a passenger to make the trip easier, make a stop in the San Jose area, and we can split the gas (and the driving! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smokin.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] )

I love the parallel quarter-eliptic front ends, but that one might be a little more radical than I'd do... probably could tell better if I could see the whole car...

(hint, hint)

Well, i dig the car, but I still think the front end might look better about three inches closer to the radiator. I think the best thing about the old modifieds is when they're set up so that it looks like the body/chassis just hovers in the middle of the suspension... kinda like a water strider or a daddy longlegs.
