Next Project Under Way - P38 Stretched Tank

Well hot rod artist "Jeff Norwell" did it again ! A real quick sketch by Jeff of my next project which is under way. It will be a stretched P38 tank, 20" added to the middle, powered by a '58 GMC Jimmy six 302. The tank will be running in the XO/GL class at Bonneville. XO - relates to a straight engine, pre-1958 and limited to 325 cubes with a stock head, however; porting is allowed.
GL- relates to a 'gas' 'lakester'.

Well back to the garage to bend up some more tubing. Yes folks - there will be a canopy covering the crazy pilot attempting to reach 200 MPH. See you there in August 2011 ?
