The modified roadster that Gary Wilson & Mike LeFevers are building won't be ready for Speed Week but we're still shoot'n for this year. Here are some pictures of the cars progress and the power plant. We will run in "C" & "D" gas class and someday with luck move up to blown gas.

Just don't make a mistake and enter that in the C fuel class. Those buzzards will be circling the finish line.

Marvelous project, Mike.

Thanks Glen, glad you like it.
To make a long story short, were working on a way to put front suspension in it. It's currently solid, we don't have enough room so to get the car done we just said "Bolt it down"(ya we know better). Now that were not going to make Speed Week we are going to re-investigate our lay down shocks & rocker arm front suspension. We always wanted it just time & room issues because we want it all on the inside of the body.

The car looks great mike.  I like the Mopar all the way through or the 1/2 Dodge Brothers 1/2 Mopar.

   

I have some suspension pictures on this page you might want to look at:

I don't know how well any of them work.  Hope to maybe make World Finals this year and see the car in person.

c ya, Sum
