Daniel - probably going to hold onto the Corvette body for now. Ever since I saw the Mid-America Funny Car Circuit run at Keystone Raceway Park back in '96 or '97, I've dreamed of piloting a funny car. The only reason for running the altered body is that my crew is pretty sparse and between the two, they can't lift the body LOL.

I did it with just me and my Dad. Surely you can make it happen.

The transmission was a Top Dragster 1.80 low powerglide. It has since expired. It is being replaced by a B & J 3sp and Crower peddle clutch. The engine is a 541 BBC. Brodix BB3Xtra 380 cc heads 12:1 compression. I sent you a private message with contact info. Be happy to answer whatever you need any time.

Still have the same project car that is being resurrected (blown altered) and even added a project '70 Chevelle that my youngest and I are going to restore/mod. Glad to be back! Look forward to picking ya'lls brains.

Welcome back aint it great? I have several friends who have had multiple brands of lifts and some of the best are the Rotary / Ranger / BendPak and theres some "home shop" lines that run under those big name brands that I seen the best deals on those have come through the Napa franchise stores. In Alaska we're limited by who brings them to the state, otherwise your faced with giant shipping costs.I do know theres some chinese junk out there so be very aware of what you're buying before you do.
