      first i should say hello. i'm new here. my name is dave sherman. i build primarily 1/8 scale modern day drag cars. i like a touch of retro thrown in for good fun but, mostly, very high horsepower, very large rear tire cars. i've been working on this build for about 8 months. the car is probably 99% scratch built 1/8 aa/fa . i do all of my own work (i.e. machining, painting, etc.) i welcome all questions and/or comments. i hope you enjoy the car as much as i do building them.

    Just when I think all the drooling is under control, along comes this work and it starts all over again. I love your work. No two ways about it.

    For timing pocket watch hands? I never knew the real thing came so tiny. Those look like real parts spread out on the garage floor.

    Good Gravy. Now that's what I call some fantastic work. That's got to be one of the best drag models I've seen in a long time.

    thanks, hot 1/8 aa/fa ford coupe. drag racing is where my heart is. i'm getting ready to build a 1/8 modern top alcohol 1/8 aa/fa dragster for a very good friend of mine. i'm hoping to surpass this build with it. as i get to learning the site a little better, i'll start posting as i build. plus, i'm still in the information gathering stage.
