   This is my first post on this forum, but I see that there are several projects going on around the country.
I have been actively building my tank car for about the past four years, but the idea started in 1994 when I decided to build something that for me was a different kind of project.
     I still have a ways to go, but I hope to be finished in the spring.The motor is a 1937 V-8 60 with Offenhauser heads. Eddie Meyer intake, Crane cam, And Mallory distributor.
      When I began this build, I wanted to be able to drive the car so I had to lengthen the tank 18" and figure out how to shift the transmission. These two things took the most time to figure out, but in the end I was able to make everything work.
   If you would like to see the entire build up to this time, check out my website www.mccainautomotive.com

Welcome to landracing.com and this Forum, Mr. Newbie, sir.  And thanks -- you're in the minority when you told us just where you're located.  You will, no coubt, be visiting with us racers at Maxton (Maxton/Laurinburg airport -- the East Coast Timing Acura'n, http://www.ecta-lsr.com/) this spring and summer, right?  We'd be happy to have you come share some exhaust fumes and exciting times.

So -- what's your name?

Nice to meet you Jeff,

Hope your project continues and you can make it to Maxton a few times this year.

I will call your shop later this month and maybe I can stop by.

Take care,

Charles
