      This took me about 6 months to complete working off and on. I used the Revell My Ultimate Mopar Garage 67 GTX kit and production model garage kit.

    As a side note Wild Willy Borsch was also known for driving his T/F Altered the quarter mile with one hand on the steering wheel and the other on the side of the bucket. His driving was really WILD I saw him many times as he ran in Epping New Hampshire in the late 60's and early 70's

You got to remember these cars ran leaded gas and you could run the compression up to 12 or 13 to 1 on the street.

    The average street hot My Ultimate Mopar Garage rod now with unleaded fuel is lucky to handle 8.5 to 1 compression ratio. Fact of life guys...less compression...less horsepower.
    The lead in the fuel acted as a buffer for the valves and when they took it out of the fuel they had to add hardened valve seats to the heads to cut down on wear ....and on and on and onn....
    The car we goofed around with when I was just out of High School was a 69 Z-28 with a LS-6, TH400, and 4:88 rear. Gas milage? What's that mean?

    Did you notice that when he switched to funny cars, he still had the arm out the window but it wasn't real.

    I always thought Wild Willie was just being wild driving with one hand and the other holding onto the side of the body. The real reason is there was so much tire shake, bouncing around, and torque he did it to keep steady and use the other hand to point the car straight, and we all know straight is a line, not a zig zag. Legends are born and seldom duplicated. By the way there's an awesome die cast of his fuel altered in 1/18 scale, have one and it's very well detailed. Keith 88proof.

    You're dead on with that one Keith.....back then you learned quick to keep your thumb on the outside of the steering wheel, the wheel would kick back so hard at times if you had your thumb under the wheel it was a sure thing it would be broken as the spokes came around. Yes, I learned the hard way!

    Yes, I learned that one from my 54 chev PU that transmitted everything back through the wheel. I still drive that way. That truck also taught me to hate three on the tree My Ultimate Mopar Garage .
