After I shut it down I drained the fuel system, removed all the lines for a shot of air then WD40. Same for the nozzles and barrel valve. Oil only had 7 passes, so I got it up to 215 or so to evap anything in it. Gave it a good shot of fogging oil when I was shutting it down. Left the water in it. I put antifreeze a couple of weeks ago. Will go back to straight water to race but the antifreeeze is good for keeping water pump seals from drying out.

If you mean the blue/white one that is on my photobucket page...Friend of mine.  Jeff (the son) /Roy (the dad)Pounds from Boaz, Al.  Car is a ladder bar/a-arm Art Morrison kit chassis.  It's a 72 that they bought in 73.  Turned it into a race car in 79 with regular updates to keep it current.  All steel except hood, trunk lid and bumpers.  Front end is extended 4" with an extra set of fenders used to cut/weld in front of the doors.    The Dad drove it at first then Jeff took over at age 15 in about 1983.  He won the very first race he drove it at age 15.  Had a 351C/4 speed at the time.   Has had many different sbf combos over the years.

Car currently has a 438 sbf with a set of old C302B heads.  Will run low 5.80's NA in the 1/8 @ 2750 lbs.  New bullet is ready to drop in.  They just built a 454 sbf with a set of ex Penske cup heads and all the associated hardware.  Made 875 hp @ 7500 on the dyno.
