A good friend gave me a Indy Car body and I scratch built most everything else and put in a Big Block Ford for power. I never got see these cars run but remember them from pics in Open Wheel and Circle Track mags. Hope you all like it.

It's AWESOME Rett, and has a real sinister look about it! I will bet that thing was wicked fast at Oswego.......

Thanks for posting...

Very Nice Dirtman! I never got to see this type of Super Modifieds run in person either. Here is a pic of one of the full size. This one was Indy car driver Art Pollard's (perhaps best known for driving the Andy Granatelli STP Lotus Turbines in 1968) similar ride.

If you don't crash once in a while, how do you know you're going as fast as you can?

It's been so long since I did this one I can't remember where the tires and wheels cam from. Sorry. Most of the time I just use what I have or what I think looks right.
