I finally found an 23 altered in my price range, the only question is that it has not been certified in 5 years.  it was certified for 7.5.   will  this recertify?

It should, but you might have to add some bars, and might have to mount the wing differently.

Nothing has been added to the spec for the chassis, wing mounts are a concern tho, but one really does not need a wing, just a fancy place to put the cars number.  Bring ALL your driving gear and suit up as you were making a pass, and sit there belted in for 30 minutes, if you dont fit or need to get out---pass

Re: wings on altereds
A noted A/A racer once told me if you are not going 200 mph wings are a waste of time and the increased downforce will not over come the losses associated with aero drag .

That Mr. Boston altered looks a bit like the one I have seen run out here in Sacramento (Bad News)

Brianm.  Make sure your 460 Ford Bell housing fits in the chassis as the 460 ford wont fit in many cars that were built for a Chrysler Hemi.

I agree with what someone here said make sure the cage is more than big enough. I would add that many have a small cage and you can not hardly give those cars away because so few people fit in them. Resale value is much better with larger cage.

To the OP did you get a car yet?
