I will be at the test and tune session at my local track this saturday to see what I can run in the 1/4 mile. Lee that thing is sweet and of course I'm partial to it because that's what I'm doing with mine. It's looking damn fine.

Same to you. What are the specs on your motor? What rear are you using? I just finished what is perhaps my greatest invention. You may have noticed my cutouts. Lazy person I am, even removing the 3 bolts on each side is a burden. I just made new block off plates with a center hole and 3 large holes at the bottom. On Wed I am going to weld in a bolt, then attach a smaller 2 1/2 inch diameter plate with 3 matching holes. By loosening the center wing nut, I can rotate the plate to either line up with the 3 holes or partially cover them for more or less noise. I just fired it up with all 3 holes open and it sounds great-louder than my Gibson round turbo muffler but not loud enough to get police attention. I can always make more or larger holes. And all it takes to quiet it down is loosening the wing nut and rotating the smaller disk. The next best thing to the expensive (close to 6 bills) electric cutouts.

Just for the record, the car is not exactly quiet with the mufflers. It is a nice low rumble that sets off alarms. Still, I like to be heard (loud pipes save lives).

A guy at the car show last Sunday said my Jeep looks like a classic hotrod and needs flames. Then he offered to stripe them (for free). All I had to do was mask off everything (tremendous amount of tedious work) and paint it. I saw him again on Tuesday at a cruise night and he loved what I did and said he would do the rest of the car. I still want to paint the grill white and finish the rest of the sides of the front fenders.

(Don't know why the picture came out so big?)

Finally got to the track on Monday-best 13.1 with consistent 13.2's. Car launched great, steady as a rock and not at all squirrelly. After a couple of tries got some awesome burnouts, shifting gears as the tires smoked. Plus, I drove it to the track and back (over 100 miles each way) and got better than 10 mpg at 60 to 70 mph.

Obviously the engine is not the advertised 450 HP, but that will soon change with some aluminum Edelbrock heads and a roller cam.

Your Yj is pretty cool. Nice job.

When I was a kid my Dad had a station wagon with the fins out to the side. He always complained that when he got up to 65 that his rear end started to be light and float a little.. Your front end reminded me of his old station wagon.. I was looking at your Yj and all the cool thing that you did and I visioned the front fenders to go around the front wheels.. That would set you rig off to be what it is.. A true Jeep rod.

Just a suggestion to a beautiful rig.

You would think it would be a handful with a short wheelbase like that, but it still weighs a fair amount I'll bet. Lighten it up some and throw on a 6-71 and it will be like an old AA/Altered.

Looks awesome.

Cool, JEEPS are meant to be individualized.

You have done good things to make her one of a kind.

Hey, just be careful with that slingshot you built there.
