The chassis had enough weld to be unclamped from the Jig table and flipped over to finish off the TIG welds in those hard to reach places

The finished chassis all welded up. Time to panel the sides, put up the last tabs and finalize steering.

Nostalgia Funny Car Project Chassis Fabrication

We started this project with an S&W chassis kit. We are trying to keep the funny car cage low. A handmade aluminum seat was required. Currently we are just putting up tubing and tacking up making sure it all fits!

Fuel Tanks, Dry Sump Oil Tanks, Custom Metal Fabrication

fuel tank and oil tank custom

Our Oddy Beretta project would not accept the standard oil tank available. . . so we built a custom one. Since the fuel tank has to match the oil tank. . .  we built that too.

Below is the beginning stages of an S&W Nostalgia Funny Car.

Setting up the car and following the blueprint.

We received some valuable tech support from Mike at S&W Race Cars.

2015 Drag Racing Hall of Fame Inductees

Della Woods Shell

Eastcoast Drag Times Hall of Fame announced 2015 drag racing inductees to include Della Woods an AA/FC, NHRA pro driver from 1969 – late 1980’s.

Della Woods was the first female driver in the 5 second bracket in the funny car class and the first female driver to go to the semi finals at an NHRA national event. She held the latter record for almost 22 years.

Della Woods NHRA Funny Car Driver

Della earned her license in 1968, signed off by Rodger Lindamood, Don Garlits, and Don Kohler. At the 1969 NHRA Winternationals Della Woods was the first women to have her entry accepted to enter a Pro Class race.

Della Woods in 1970s

In 1985 Della Woods had a career weekend, running a career-best 6.02 in her Paul Smith-tuned Daytona and reaching the Funny Car semifinals. Woods’ accomplishment stood as the finest ever for a female driver in the class for 22 years until Ashley Force Hood reached the final of the fall Las Vegas event in 2007.

 

To learn more about Della Woods and her entire racing career, The Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame has put together her story.

Congratulations to Della Woods!

Below is an iCanFab future project.
