    DEEPNHOCK's 1953 Drag Car ... "The Black Car"

    It needs a better 'Drag Racer Name'.....
    A slow 'work in progress' project.
    Converting it from a BBC to a Novi blown Stude V8.
    Stude Power!

    I like that car. I did the first time I saw it and still do. I can always say: I helped load it on the trailor. So maybe I could cheat a little and say I was once part of the pit crew. Wait til I get "The Saturday Night Special" back goin'. I may come lookin' forya. (humor) Kinda makes me proud to own a black 53. LOL LOL

    With your boys as the pit crew... We didn't need ramps to load it up
    They could have just picked it up and tossed it on the trailer

    "Black Mamba"

    "The midnight menace"

    Just a few that popped in my head.

    "Black POS" would be too easy.

    Reverend Mr Black is a well known Mopar in the Deep South.
    I saw the original run many times at various tracks , including
    Thunderbolt Raceway near Jax. , and of course here at Spruce Creek.

    Looks like ole Officer Dave posted the yellow pos behind Sheba once too often. Love everything about this car. Can't wait to see it up close.
    I think a man with a helmet defending his country should make more money than a man with a helmet defending a football.

    Remember the logo Elvis had on his plane--"taking care of business in a flash (TCB)" with the lightning bolt?...picture this: Flashblack in a lightning bolt--could be a flashy design...

    Maybe if you could find an R-3 emblem and modify it to be R-53, or a decal made up with a circle with the S in it and R/53 on it. Either put on the fender 64 style, or on the wing tips.
    I think a man with a helmet defending his country should make more money than a man with a helmet defending a football.

    I have two, 'BLACK GOLD' or my all time favorite, 'GOOD VIBRATIONS'.
    Do you have a thread with more pics of the black car... not that I ever get tired of looking at the yellow one but, I have only seen a couple shots of the black car.
