Noticed in the latest issue they had a preview for cars that were going to be at SEMA this year. The one that caught my eye was one that was apparently there last year in the early stages, but is supposed to be there finished this year. Blew my mind.

A '32 Ford roadster, tube chassis, killer suspension and a 900hp Jon Kaase 600ci Boss 429.


With All Wheel Drive. 


Now that sounds like a hoot.



Here it is earlier, supposed to be there finished this year. Wow!

They're planning on racing it in many different series and then taking to Bonneville to see what it will do.


Sounds like a hoot to drive to local cruise in, lol. And that's a whole lot of rubber, but I guess it takes a lot to put down power from a Kaase Boss Nine, lol.

That thing looks so badass. I would keep it the way it is in those photos, with the exception of a floorboard.

I agree, especially concerning the floor.  It looks like the driver is sitting right on top of the transfer case.  The possibility of an exploding driveshaft looks scary.  That's a beautiful machine .  .  .

Those pics are from last year when it was in the early stages of the build, just cobbled together in a mock up, its supposed to be completed this year for SEMA in full blown driving, racing trim.
