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.
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?
