    Barry Lutz Chevelle is what all drag radial cars should aspire to be like. That car is bad to the bone.

    Me too! I have every pic of his build on my phone. I refer to his car all the time. Very tastefully built without going overboard.

    That's the same style "Sunoco" hood I have for my 64. In fact I'm picking it up next week.

    Glasstek too.

    They have a pretty good handle on scoop placement for a Skylark bodied car.

    That's where mine is from..........Glasstek. I had VFN stuff in the past and was very satisfied with it. Hope the Glasstek stuff is as good...................it looks good in the picture.

    Upper plenum all welded up. BIG THANKS to Steve Reynolds for knocking it out and as always doing an awesome job.

    Still have to fit plenum to the runners and have it sewed up along with some brackets , fuel rails and a water manifold.
