Yep.

Thanks for looking.

I think a Hemi would look good in there...

Looks great!

Thanks!

LOL< I'm sure a Hemi would look superior... but with 28 inches max dia of the tube... maybe. For now, Chevy V8 and auto trans will be a starting point.

I don't know how wide it is, Dodge had the smallest Hemis, a 241, and 247 I believe. Though, they are a bit pricy to build. Possibly build a couple 392s for what one would be.

Would be kinda cool, the heads valve covers and headers poochin out of the shell. I spose that wouldn't be all that great for aerodynamics.

Update.

A mock up of where I'm going... and of course, something y'all figure I'd do... make something out of something else.

The bullet tail light, fixture is a classic drink mixer (them shaker thingies.... a shower mount, and a semi marker light.

Tiny update: Decided to just build a novelty instead of an actual racer.

Meet the A-10s (s=stealth. Mix between the A10 and the stealth bomber.

Sorry for the crappy mock up.

Beer kegs for the mock engines double as the fuel tanks.... eh-yep!

I guess I could... but I think the minigun works... just gotta figure out how to make one for it... and not scrape the ground.
