Your Dodge turned out so good I thought you might want to build another one.

After spending 4 yrs of my life on the current one... probably don't have it in me! Nice cheap body for somebody though!

Closer still! I've always used Peel & Seal & this is no exception! Got the floors & behind the seat done, wires to the back taped down & the carpet to the basic shape. Gonna glue the carpet down in spots & install the seat! Overcast & raining here so it's a perfect day for working in the shop & blasting some moldy goldy oldies!

The 6" stuff makes getting around corners easier.

When I went into town for the car show on Saturday, I realized I had a low rear gear ratio in my quick change which sucks on the highway with a 3 speed automatic so I swapped gear sets today. Went from the 3.77:1 to a 2.19:1. I was doing 3 grand at 65-70mph with the 3.77 & will be doing 2 grand at 75-80 with the 2.19! Big difference!!! The big Nailhead has so much torque it would pull a 1:1 no problem!

That's what is nice about a quickie. Besides, they look really cool. Can you hear it whine?

My first thought too
You aren't wrong about the Nailheads having a basket load of torque

Luckily mine doesn't whine! With the 2.19 gear set it has a slight whine when you hit 70mph but goes away a couple mph's past that! I've heard people report their QC howls so I feel lucky!
