    I'll kick it off!

    This is my Swinger back shortly after i got it. Slant six, bench seats, and a whole bunch of Grandma vibe! In this picture i hadn't done much other than the wheels.

    Then we have a few weeks ago at the track on the right. I have to say... i made it my own!!

    lets see your before and afters!!!

      No extreme makeover but in the looks department (in a week) I went from this....

      to this...

      over the time I've owned it, I've replaced the motor, tranny, rear end, radiator, rims/tires twice, dual exhaust, headers, power to manual steering and brakes, instrument cluster and dash pad, wiper linkage bushings and seals, and heater core.

                    heres a few slight changes

                    the tent pic is where were going from /6 to 360 (or was it from 360 to 408?)

                    you'd think id have a pic somewhere of the duster with the 69 valiant dart grille installed

                        That track "appears" to be banana shaped.... looks like you start on a slight down hill then the last 300 ft you go up ????? LOL

                        100% correct.lol you also burnout uphill, and the staging lanes are parallel with the track....
                        I'll run a 10.30 in columbus, then come back to quaker and run a 10.60. Just the way she was poured back in the 50's, and the way its going to be.lol

                        there's another local track where you backup into the waterbox.... each track has its little quirk!

                            Here's my junk. Nothing too dramatic. Just cleaned up the motor and interior. Now it doesn't leak, runs good and the interior doesn't smell like butt. ;)

                                      i loved the look of em...but no one makes N50-14s anymore (those were 14X10s)
                                      so, i went to 15 inch slots all the way around

                                      i still got the 14s stashed away in the garage in case anyone wants em...or i come across a set of tires for em
