Well, Bruce -- you've already learned that we (on this Forum) have a sense of humor.  Sometimes it's a tad on the biting side, sometimes not.  But we'd sure like to hear about your build, and see it, too.  No matter how far along you are, no matter if you've got an event date in mind -- we'd be happy to follow along and help you if you want it.

Ok. It was just most builds start with  cheers, soon followed with more  cheers, and inviting others over for  cheers to discuss how it might be going.   cool

Looks SoCal, Dodge Plymouth, and likely light an engine. Also looks like an older photograph.

I'm not sure that's the easy way to get to a lakester, but some might use the engine. If you've already had years of experience and lots of parts for a particular engine series, that is a good start. If you're starting and only have a 1+ garage then a workbench sized engine 500cc/750cc would be cheaper. The big if here would be if Dodge powered is more fun go with it.

The whole point is getting what you have to run at it's best and have a smile on your face because you did it. IMO

Interesting design for a Special Construction car. They just say you can't use an existing car body. Don't say you cant hammer out your own that looks like a '66 MoPar. But I think your going to have to go back and read the rules a little more closely on wheel/tire location. And start stacking up the wheel spacers if you want to run Lakester.
