    A fun project with a good story to tell about it. 88,000? I'd immediately go over to JEGS/Summit/Speedway for the 383 crate motor.

    That one? 100 wouldn't be so bad. It's not exactly the "production" class! I was picturing something a little more "old school" where you sat out in the open and had 3 feet of ground clearance. ...

    Other way around! The fairgrounds are about 4 miles south east of the museum. I'll have to give Digger Dave a call this morning. He and Tom Karkiewicz would have been fairly close to this.
