I have two allisions and want to build a dragster with one of them. Does anyone have any idea where I could find plans or photos for a frame? I'm new to this. I just started building 3 years ago after a 40 year pause. In that time, I have finished only 2 models. Any ideas?

Have a look at those lunatics at the Castlemain Rod Shop.......they create some of the best hot rods in the world.
They've crammed a Packard Merlin into a 55 Chevy. It's been in quite a number of hot rod mags here in Oz. It actually runs, too. It's got a very short driveshaft - about a foot long and as thick as your thigh! Had to move the driver's seat back a fair amount - cooling was also a major headache. It's the kind of machine that's in the "point anad shoot" category. Wouldn't want to mix it up in tight twisty corners.......
There are several pretty good photos of the beast on their website - have a look at the following:
These guys do some world class work.

Cheers, LeeTree

Thanks Lee. It's not what I had in mind, but you know, something like that looks like a lot more fun to try and build.

That link is insane! It's got 'future model project' written all over it. Thanks.
