With the help of my friends, I have had the enjoyment of running my 96 Firebird at both Maxton and Bonneville. It didn't set the world on fire (or itself) but we had a great time tickling 200 with a basic 383 LT1 and a little nitrous. Previously, the car had been running B/FALT #9614 but I want this thing to go a bit faster, so we are changing over to AA/BGALT.

As expected, this is not just a matter of changing the letters on the side of the car, but completely starting from scratch. And I mean completely. This weekend, we put the car on a jig built by JavaJoe79 (Chris Coffey) and Erin Carpenter of Coffey Fabrication in Nashville, and completely gutted it. The plan is to build a new frame, chassis, cage structure that will be much safer in pursuit of a blue hat.

Power is coming from a 555 BBC with two 88mm Comp Turbos. This is the engine and turbos that my friend Shannon and I drove 1000 miles on Drag Week in 2010 in his old Nova. It ended up running 7.9's on leaf springs in street trim and I built the engine so I feel very comfy with it. Making the power will not be nearly as difficult as putting it to the ground. The rest of the drivetrain includes an Extremeliner rear end and Lenco, both already in possession.

Below are some before and after shots.

As Daryl said, we built a table just to build this car.  It started as a pair of 20' Ibeams I bought at an auction.

That slowly turned into the backbone for the table.

That we then topped with a 8'x20' 0.500" steel plate, which we drilled and tapped on a 6" grid......492 holes!

Through the long process of table building, we have been acquiring the bigger parts for the build, like this Glasstek front end and Winters Xtremeliner.





Now that we finally have the car mounted and gutted the exciting part of building can start.

Erin;

"...8'x20' 0.500" steel plate, which we drilled and tapped on a 6" grid......492 holes!"

I'll keep that in mind the next time I'm drilling a few dozen #20 rivet holes and feeling sorry for myself!  tongue

Kinda looks to me that you will be annihilating the 200 mph mark!!! Your drag race engine is a good start but remember that it has to run WOT for around 60-100 seconds not 7.9. What ever you have on it for water pumps now need to be increased.

Going to be a fun build to watch and even more fun will be seeing you at the salt!! Should be a real 300 mph contender. Love your build table, 492 1/2-13 holes, what fun! I do see you have a good mag base drill which really helps. Keep the tap drills sharp! Let the games begin!!

  Allright cool some competition for worlds fastest door slammer.

  My brother used to machine the Titan pumps until Bob Sanders bought his own CNC machine.

  Should be fast but don't use those wide tires grin

 Here is the progress from today. Engine is temp mounted into the front clip and positioned onto the jig with the car. Next up is main frame rails, mid plate and firewall.

That looks good.

The front clip has a strong NASCAR flavor to it.

I bet you appreciate the jig table. cheers

Nice progress. I have fabrication envy!

Did you fab the front subframe or is that a component part? Seems you would need a jig to built it as well.
