    Just look for our trailer with the dragster under the awning. If we have new parts out, that is where they will be. As we get closer I will put up a picture of the trailer and our location at BG

    The foundry is now working on our Wildcat block. We should have castings in 2-3 weeks if all goes well!

  5. I'm potentially interested in an iron block. This business of trying to find a usable factory block is tiring.

    Oh goodie so then I can twist my frame, with worrying about blowing a hole through my oil pan. I've always wanted to bend a frame

    Trailer is at the house in Maine. Had too many shipping and parts issues to get the car running. Left Maine yesterday afternoon and just about to Nashville now to get my new fuel system. We will be in BG later today for the W.O.T meeting. PM me a contact number and I'll contact you tomorrow if we don't see you tonight

    Pattern work is no problem. Foundries are quoting next year. If anyone knows of foundries that will do 25 or less blocks both iron or aluminum at a time after a few prototypes let me know. Including new start up foundries!
