Thankfully I have Sid and the SNS Racing team as mentors and hands-on supprt, as well as the wealth of knowledge from members on here, so I'm really looking forward to being a part of preserving the dragster.
Ian,
At last years Hot Rod Drags Mark Purslow had the lions share of an early hemi for sale. I don't think it sold so it was going back under the bench. I don't think he wanted huge amounts of money for it. Roy Wilding should have a contact number for Mark.
Best of luck with the re-build/restoration. Maybe we'll see it cackling at Shakey in the future?

I'm sure those shots will come in very handy in the restoration of the car. Great pics.

I'm guessing the first Dragfests, maybe before as there are some bizarre rods, too... 8)

OK, so here's the rest of what I've got on this car, minus a couple of duplicate/same angle track shots. Amazingly, I also have the original 120 (2 1/4in) b/w negatives for many of these photos, which have not been out of their wrappers since heaven knows when, so are in perfect unscratched condition. I love old photos... don't you? :D
