Finally. FINALLY! I got a chance to work on the Red Baron. Its mu brothers 1979 Coupe project. Started life as a 2.8l 6cyl c4 auto car. It had dual glass packs when we got it and when doing donuts one night we noticed it sounded like an old bi-plane, hence the name.
My brother and I built it in the 90s with a stock 460 out of a 73 Lincoln. Put some PAW dome pistons and a small solid in it. Ran it for years in the FFW and NMRA doing True Street. It ran very consistent 11.00. One day for no reason at all, it chucked a rod out coming off the trailer. That was 2008-2009. Been sitting since.
I traded off all the bbf stuff for a sbf turbo setup. I sold the turbo off and it sat on the shelf ever since. Recently I noticed I had an engine, a turbo, and turbo kit. I bought some parts for it over the last year or two as they came available. So I finally dug it out and started tinkering on it. Took it out of the garage under it's own power today.

All the chassis stuff
Currently on gate pressure and messing around a little today saw 6psi so that's a good starting point. Got to tune it and then haul it down to AL where it can rot into the ground in his yard.
