HMR's latest effort. Haven't decided yet what to call it. So far "Fattie Flattie" of Sweetie Streetie" are the front runners.
Anyone with an opinion on the subject is welcome to express it.
I have always been a fan of the "sideways boys" never did it in organised competition,just fooled around a little on the hardpan flats(playas to those with an education). Had a sprint car for awhile and did a little "slideways" stuff on 4 wheels. Awhile back Rebel gave me an FT500 ascot,I changed it around a little and painted it to resemble Bubba Shobert's 86(?) #1 Flat tracker. I think I lost all the pics of it when my hard drive went out in Dec.
Anyhow,when the 82 swallowed a valve some doors opened ideas hatched and here is the plan: Spoke wheels,1000 shelter.Darkwing 2 seat,17" wheels front and rear "class c" traction,stacked exhausts on the left side,red,white and blue paint scheme and (if I can find $600) a Holley 390 cfm 4 barrel. A couple of years ago I helped a guy in Jackson Ca clean out his garage so I have a lot of the parts,a 75 pretty much complete w/0 motor,an 1100 motor with 75 heads and cams,all the spoke wheels and hubs except short a 17" rim,it's coming from Odlidle in Denver area,nobody on here had one. New spokes coming from Buchanan.
I'll repeat the invitation: Anyone with ideas,suggestions or criticisms feel free to share them.
Here we go!
ps: There is a picture of the Ascot last one on page 5 of my album.
