OK, now THAT sounds like my kind of rail!!

I've always dreamed of building a 120" dragmaster or k-88 style dragster with a 302/c4/9" combo. I've literally got everything I need.

Rat, is that the same Colthrups that have been around the QLD drag race scene for years?

You are on the money Roo, since 1966. This dragster belonged to John, the car I drive belongs to his brothers Joe & Jim.

Rat, can I ask why you went with a 727 instead of a c4?

Why a 727, simply it came at the right price. It was already beefed up as it came out of a Customline. It was shortened to fit in the dragster and used a push button shifter.
