Nothing more fun for me then running a six with all homebrew stuff and being able to run with the big dogs.
Just got the Video clips from the last three races I ran at. I am down to only one fellow who will run me. The rest refuse even when the starter motions them to pair up. The race organizer and race tech guy along with track video man where here last night till midnight. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
According to them when pressured as to why they wouldn't run me they said the feeling was if we beat Don it is no big deal as he has a couple of hundred cubes less BUT if he beats us we take so much teasing for the next month or so about being smoked by a six cylinder we just aren't going there.
Now that I have retired the car they can sleep I guess.

SR Dragster, because old people need to have fun too!

The cars pictured belong to me. I just joined this web site. The orange car is THE LAST LOGGHE altered. It was built by the famed Logghe Stamping Company. I am the original and sole owner. It has always been powered by an inline Ford (300 or 240).

The white car with purple flames was built by me. It was built to compete in the Street Division (Sportman IHRA). In the 1999 - 2000 time era I was in 16 final rounds at my track and won 12 of them. Now my neighbor drives it at select nostalgia events.

Both cars have won season track championships.

I also have several other six-powered hot rods I'll post info about as time permits.

As promised - albeit a bit slow - here are some pics of cars I currently have under construction. One is a '49 Anglia and the other is a (bit off-topic) vintage replica champ car w/ crossflow headed 300 engine first fire up. Enjoy
