On its 50th birthday the Beast is driving on its own power again. I picked it up from a friends shop who graciously helped my get the little details and some big details worked out. For those that haven't followed my project it was on the road only about four-five years when it was involved in a mishap in 1971 that took it off the road until today, a very special day for me. It is mostly complete sans interior components, trying to get it ready for its 50th birthday celebration at Indy. Now its time to put some miles on the odometer and get used to its ways making sure everything is as its supposed to be. Cool one

Looking great!
If the weather is good on Saturday come on down to the KMart parking lot and show it off.  Hours of get together 7am - 9am give or take.  Cheers

I will need to get it plated with some tags before I wonder off with it. Its one thing to get an exhibition of speed ticket but its another when there are no plates on it. That's when they throw the book at you- its too low, too loud,speeding, I could think of another 6 things my head is beginning to hurt thinking about it. Our own PCHMOTOHO knows about these things he and KIWI discussed it on a couple of occasions. RIP my friend- Feels like it could get the number I'm looking for, now to finish the interior it looks like hell.

Finally got some plates and tags and am able to cruise the local streets. Guzzles VP 112 race fuel like a drunken sailor swilling 90 proof while home on leave. 90 $ for 5 gallons = a half hour of pushing on the loud pedal Grin Shocked Pictures to follow PeelOut

I have a couple of outings on my baby now. It gets to 120 about as fast as I can row the 4 speed,this with all street tires no drive shaft safety loop etc. So just trying to ease into this before going with the after market safety items to get that extra 50-60 mph. The front end seems very light at speed,anyone know what the original Super Snake did for any of its original settings? Shocked

Not sure suspension settings will compensate for aerodynamic lift inherent in the cars' front design.  May need to add a front lower chin spoiler to help.  Sorry I don't remember, does the hood have louvers?

I don't know them off the top of my head but there are some front-end settings for more performance oriented driving that others can state.  I used them for my car and like them.

Thanks JD for the suggestions. Hood is vented to let out some high pressure air. Hoping someone has some info on the Super Snake, getting closer to making this a reality. Cheesy
