Nice!
Let's see some more if that car!

Here ya go!



A beautiful car and it looks to have a lot of potential with that body shape.  I looked in the Speed Week results and couldn't find a time.  Did it make a run?  If it didn't please post results in the future,

Sum,
     We went to the line twice but didn't make it to the clocks. First time we didn't have the engine tune up right to start and idle without running them against the clutches. Second time with the engines starting and idling nicely we found we had burnt the clutches in the first attempt. After a multi year build on both the car and trailer we were happy to make it there with no problems, pass tech with no major problems and actually turn a wheel on the course.

Do you have more pictures of the car without the body and with?  From where the exhaust is exiting I'm wondering if it is front engine/front wheel drive?

If you get the motor sorted, I'm sure you will, I'll bet the car does very well,

If you are storing your pictures in the Pictures folder on your computer, just click on the picture you want and at the top it will say "edit", click on the edit button and a new window will come up, usually Windows Live Photo Gallery. Then just click on the picture and at the top it will say Properties, click on that and it will say re-size, click on that and it will let you re size your picture to a smaller size. You can play with it to find out what works best, but as I recall the maximum attachment size allowed is 500 KB per post.

That is what works for me.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

If it is 800 x 532 and size above 100kb is fine.

You can post as many as 4 images but the total size can not exceed 500kb.

Good, but... grin

Bigger is better.  Professor Freud suggested 800x532.

Just sayin'.
