New project: VOODOO CHILD

The project is going to be built and financed by myself but with special mention and interest to the MWR recreation department. For those of you that dont know that is the Morale Welfare Recreation. It is a set of programs and services that are beneficial to the soldiers, sailors, marines, airmen and their families. As the build moves along I intend to use the car as a teaching tool to instruct those willing to learn on how to go about some of the aspects of building a car beyond the standard practices (oil,brakes,maintenance). Instruction that is not currently available. I hope to gather enough interest in the project that at the end I will be able to approach the MWR and have them bring about a program like this for all of the major military installations.


I got the idea for the design while listening to the beginning of Voodoo Child by Jimi hendrix and looking at the Boyd Possesed wheels. So Thank you Jimi you did much for all of us!

The rendering was done by Ben Meissner and I cannot be happier with his work. We are doing a few minor changes but nothing major. "http://www.streetroddesigns.com"

I havent decided on seats yet, since Im 6'4" I have to look around and do research but I would like to find heated/cooled seats.



I will post all the progress as I go and keep up with the pictures but instead of putting everything up on all the websites I have just created a Facebook for all of you that would like to keep up.

Nice ride.
How'd you get MWR to finance that? I may just become a disabled vet if they are willing to foot the bill for that. Maybe I need some happy time, I spent some time in Saudi during the gulf war, then Iraqi freedom.

Bump...Its been a little while since Ive been on here but Im moving along with my project pretty good. I have decided to do a LQ4 6.0 turbo setup instead of the 462. I have some stuff to sell to help finance it. I recently hit a snag and because of budget cuts from congress my Army task force got shut down and I am out of a job. I will post more pics as soon as get caught up. Hope all is well for all of you.

Ohh and I just tried to post the blower setup to classifieds and I cant because I dont have enough posts...GRRR never heard of that before. Ohh well Ill just have to start to stop in and post more often.

Updates:
It has been a long time since I updated anything, a lot has happened in recent months good and bad but Im still kickin. To follow are pictures from the progress with the car, I would like to have documented more but the focus has been on teaching and allowing people to do work while they learn (its the best way isnt it). There have also been a bunch of changes, I have scraped the 6/71 blown 462/4L80 Pontiac idea in change for a turbo LY6/6L90 combo. I started to fab up a lot more stuff not that I have more time. I am making engine mounts, headers, an oil pan, and a trans pan. All are going to be stainless steel I am going to do them my way so I dont have to deal with the fits between all the different vendors and soo far I have not seen a set of mounts that actually works 100%. I plan on keeping all of my drawings and possibly I may make a set or two for some extra cash. I also have changed the wheels I am going to use, originally I got a quote for the wheels from Perry at PTS and Driverz Inc. Boy am I glad I didnt send any money, I hope all of you get your wheels or cash sooner than later. As of right now I am also looking at possibly putting an entire 2004 GTO interior in the car but I will see how things turn out. Let me know what you guys and gals think and thatnks again for looking.

There are a lot of pictures so everyone with slow connections this may take awhile.

The motor mounts are sweet, I'm sure you could sell a ton of those if you did them for the different conversions. Very nice, and good luck. Are you building it at the hobby shop?
