yeah those front fenders love to peel away like that in a stock derby... or the outer will peel down and shear along that inner brace while the inner structure stays straight... but now you can "fix" it before the next run

198 Dodge St Regis Pulled the front down and plated it we will see how it does this year. Nephew ran it last year, letting his friend run it this year. Also took the back bumper off. This is blue and orange car on the second page.
Got the goody out of this jalopy......the learning curve on the 79-81's is still steep for me. Fronts are a no brainer but the trunks are a different story. Definitely made this one too hard behind the back doors. Won the 2 man team show with my dad and won mad dog:

Gonna scrap it. The front drivers side was so rough that one of the hits I made just made the a frame break off the mount on the front side. I'll see if I can get a picture of where exactly it broke. Thought about running it again, but it's not worth it to put the time into it to fix it.. If it were rustfree and didn't need a tranny maybe I would, but like lincoln said, it was rough

pro mod build, kickers to A arms, gas tank protector touching, frame seam welded, K frame welded solid.... front is straight as an arrow, back is super nice, pointy didnt do to well... time to make a bumper for it before september!
It was doing pretty good until I made a 1/2 arena shot nose to nose with an 80s Caprice. The nose came up just a little and tilted the motor which pushed the distributor into the back of the hood where it snapped off the cap and rotor from my Chevy motor. I tried to make the consi, but I found out too late that the damage screwed up the distributor bad and it would not keep time anymore. I got it home and replaced the distributor and it runs great again. Oh well, lesson learned-make more room than you think that you will need for parts bending.
