Well, I ran into a deal I could not pass up.  I have moved on from the '89 coupe project and bought an 85 roller with a roll bar and sub-frames already installed....
....Well I have been gone for a while but I am back.  It is August 18th 2008 and this is what we have done to The 85 that my son has named Dixie...
 The motor is a 429 that my Father in Law had in his Super Comp Dragster back in the day.  It ran 8.70's in a 1300lb. Dragster.  We are hoping for mid to low 10's.  It will be a Bracket Brawler!!!

Don't she look purdy!!!
We have welded the axel tubes of the 8.8.  We are running a 4.10 gear for now. Lakewood 90/10's up front.  Comp Eng. 3way adjustable shocks in the rear.  My father in law (Bob) fabed up a killer seat bracket for the Summit racing seat.  The 429 will be mated to a powerglide tranny.  We will be putting the re-enforced 8.8 in as soon as we get some good upper control arms cheap enough.
