I saw that Garlits article in Drag Race magazine or Nat'l Dragster or somewhere Mike, and I do like the paint scheme, but you can tease me all day long Bro'. :upthumbs

Speaking of powerful transplants, I was just watching the Popular Hot Rodding weekly TV show and they spotlighted a car that relates to your initial question here about engine swaps.

The car of which I speak was a 1968 Dodge Charger, with a Viper V-10 under the hood, and the cowl, and part of the interior... :L

It had a lot of the Viper's underpinnings as well, and was shod with the biggest rubber (345s) that Michelin (I believe) makes, yet still had room for more meat. :cool

I'll do some research and see if I can come up with an online source of info on it. ;)

Hey, as for the teasing part, this is why I was crying, I can't wait to do it again! :J

I probably shouldn't show you this one, but I think it's pretty funny. I was mugging for my niece who was taking the shot; although it looks like I caught something in the zipper that shouldn't be there, I really didn't. I call it "Ouch!" :L
