Congratulations, Frank! That's still one of the best looking Cherokees I've ever seen, and it's amazing that you've done so much of the fab work yourself.

[quote=XJ4oh]I did a top speed run today.

I hit teh NOS when I was at like 100 and my speedo bent around like 3 times, I guess I was going like 300 mph. It felt like I was sitting still, I ran out of road but luckily I was going so fast that I hit a bump and took off. I guess the Supra wing really helped out, luckily I landed in a lake and my wheels were spinning so fastz that I scrambled across it like those crazy scandanavians with their 4x4s that walk on wata. I go off of the lake just in time to hit a dirt field right before my flux capacitor quite.[/quote]

It's in the driveway, gotta pull the motor and rebuild it. He should be ready to submit it for C.O.T.M. in a few years too.
