That truly makes them rotards.

It has two new high volume Holley pumps, and an adjustable regulator. I just need to clean the two fuel cells out and put fresh fuel with new filters. I'll probably add some Marvel or some two stroke oil. I didn't want to chance putting old fuel into the carbs.

Good god.  It looks like the batmobile photoshopped with an extra front and rear end.  You have a trailer this beast fits on?

So if it does have stuck apex seals check out kreen made by kanolabs http://www.kanolabs.com/  Everything they make is awesome but not exactly cheap.  It works really well on stuck piston rings, dirty injectors, etc. too.

It *might* fit if I make ramps over the fenders.

SWEET RIDE!!!   I could build ya a tin nose, side panels, tail???? got a local place (for me) 25 bucks for a 4x10 sheet...     Cant help ya w the eng stuff, out of about 100 cars owned, Ive never had a rotory..  THAT "machine" has promoted MORE sick thoughts of many builds for me...    And money, now that the bills are past due............     I 2nd that one!!!   How did you get it delivered, semi??  All the lights and buttons look like star wars inspired, ITS WAY HOT!!!!

Re: The Eagle has landed. Repeat, the Eagle has landed. Pics!!!!!!

Thanks Nick! I wish you were closer. Your tin work was excellent on the backwardsF150Vic.  I have no sheetmetal brake, and I'd probably pay $80-$100/sheet around here for tin. It was delivered in a two-car enclosed trailer. Huge PITA to get it over the fenders with lots of boards!

Yea, the pickins for car guys around here are slim, let alone, umm thinking with no concept of what a box even is to be thinking outside of!!!   I actually dont have a brake either, I used angle iron to bend mine..   We need to build you a trailer,  simple but strong to tote that beast. I built my car trailer from a travel trailer, cut the axles to make it wider, but heavy heavy duty yada yada...

Somehow I don't think 8-wheeled, Buck-Rodgers inspired monstrosities are parked behind every barn, waiting for the one day some crazy, yet inspired bastard decides "Sure, I can race that..."

Then again, there's enough old farm trucks laying around rural Louisiana I'm sure something could be done about that.....

Re: The Eagle has landed. Repeat, the Eagle has landed. Pics!!!!!!

I think a turbo v6 from a gn would be perfect for this thing, somewhere down the line.

Does it have an onboard fire system?  I have a feeling it's going to look like the starship enterprise under attack if some of that wiring cuts loose.

I hope to see it in person at one of the races.  It looks much nicer in these pics than I thought it would.

Are you absolutely sure it came from north IL? I was watching Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer with my Grand Daughter and I'm sure I saw it on the island of misfit toys. wink

No, I think Jim and the rest of the misfits hail from southern NJ.

It's Lexan, and custom. Nothing in the body of this car is from another car. Every single light cover is custom.

Maybe I should call it the F24 Street Fighter. Two 12 A rotaries = 24, and it clearly screams fighter jet inside.
