    Finally finished the Challenger V8 from Coles and what a challenge it was for me. I still need to make a few improvements to the carburettor but it is as good as done. It can sit on the shelf for a while now as I have started another Holt 75, I sold the first one I built so maybe this one will be a keeper?

    You've built a very nice, well presented Challenger. Nice work.

    Excellent work! I'd love to hear it under load - probably makes more power/torque than my car...
