Zdravstvuj zzgarage,

I don't speak Russian, but I'm glad you speak hot rod. Welcome to this forum.

There are plenty of friends here to help answer any and all questions on your build and how to prepare it for tech inspection. Plus, I'm sure some have ideas and experience of how to ship you racer to Bonneville.

Your Buick will be a one of a kind on the salt. Best wishes, the fun has already started.

Welcome, Com-rod!   cheers

Just funning with you - we always pick on the newbies.

Where in Russia are you?

That's got to be a tough hill to climb in the former Soviet Union - Hot Rodding, at least as we understand it.  

What is the Russian Hot Rod scene like?  

I've always thought a ZIL limo engine in a Mig drop tank would make for a very unique lakester.

He has a hot rod shop and by what Ive seen does nice work. He will need all our help to make his dream come true in the time we have.

Hi John! )))
Yeap, we are trying to populize hot rodding in russia by our projects & bonneville experience =)))
Thanx for this site, it seems that we understand roll cage structure. I can say that this roll cage in russia - for tank maybe =)) very strong. our rules are more simple.
Does anybody know the custome rules if i'am shipping car to US for 2 months?
