HRCS lurker finally joins!

Post by B_Jigglz » Thu Sep 18, 2014 11:02 am

Hey guys & gals!

My name's Bryan. I'm in central NC. After years of lurking on the site following Jeremy's Mighty Max, I've finally decided that it's time to join the party. I've had several quick dsm's over the years, and even a Mazdaspeed 3 & a couple crx's to boot. My current car is an auto-x prepped Honda Crx with a b16 swap.

About 10 years ago, I inherited my grandfather's 1987 Mighty Max with 38k original miles. He bought it new when I was 4 years old. I'm sure pictures still exist of me riding in the bed with the golf clubs. It was the first car I ever got to drive. I even drove it through our closed garage door while sitting in my dad's lap when I was 8! I drove it for a couple years in my early 20's with a 3/4 static drop until it blew a head gasket. My grandfather & father always planned on building a pro street chevy after gramps retired, but time, money, and family always seemed to intervene. When my grandfather passed away a couple years ago, I decided the Mighty Max would be my family's homage to grandpa. I started collecting parts for my own 1330 beast...

After several years on the back burner (a new wife, a new house, new responsibilities), I've become nostalgic about the nights spent at smokin' Great Lakes Dragaway with my own father. I live and dream back-halved Mighty Max's on c notched frames with TH-350's and 4g63's!

I have truly undertaken a years long project, but I can't wait to share the experience with HRCS!

Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

I finally feel like I have something to add! Gave the Mighty Max a good bath last weekend. New shoes have arrived. Backhalf is on a pallet in a truck somewhere in Idaho or Missouri. I am as giddy as a school girl! I was going to try and keep this under wraps until the backhalf was complete, but I'm just too excited. Without further ado, here are the first pictures of Bobalou!

The tires are Goodyear 31x14x15. The backhalf kit that's on the way is a Chris Alston's Chassisworks Battle Cruiser frame kit with a nice 4-link setup. This frame will allow me to be 20 inches wide, outside to outside of the frame rails. We'll be tucking 14 inch slicks. Woo hoo!
