It's time to get the wheels in motion for this historic #777 modified race car. Once a dirt track champion car, I have an announcement in this video for its new direction, and we're going to go with it! We've got to get moving, as its first event is this summer.
Big thanks to Andy for all the help on this build!

Hey Fella :) Watched all your shows!! Way up here in Canada eh. Love the channel . Want some real Canadian maple syrup ? Cheers
Didn't you have different wheel Heights on the front of the car? If so, could that be the reason the bar was out of level in the front?

Huge 👍to Andy for helping you out! Don’t know if he charged you, but if he did it appears that it was worth it! A guy can only do so much b4 he’s burried in over his head..... some of us had to learn that a very hard way! Just a thought and don’t know how it would work out... but have u ever thought about viewers be it with experience that is,ever coming out to help with projects? Sometimes it could help a guy grow in his venture. I think I can speak for some wen I say it’s worth the investment of time to help a guy that clearly has been appreciated and respected! Don’t want to see a burnout go bad if you catch my drift! There are probably quite a few very talented people out there that would enjoy the opportunity!

Love watching your episodes and seeing this one I am happy to see that you are making this thing more street worthy. I have an idea for you to race it where there isn't much of a chance of it getting smashed up. There is a event coming up in Dubuque Iowa where they drag race a 1/8th mile on dirt. Nothing newer than 72 allowed. It is a pretty awesome event. Vintage Torque Fest 2021, Dubuque Iowa.

What would it cost to have her race again ? I understand you do not want to wreck her. To run her on the street you need to move the shift and put in head lights and tail lights. I see you did not put bumper in front of the tires. If you want a history of thg car contact Ray evernham he rebuilds old race cars. He found and rebuild Marty Robbins Old race car.

Man you got a good buddy and a good welder there. Me and my boy love watching your videos we are working on a 88 Chevy suburban ourselves her name is Rhonda. For the 777 I would say put a classy vgg sticker or two on her buff out any tetanus givers then do co pilot runs around a track near by for the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts or scouts in general.

It’s not clear whether it will be required to have windshield headlights and fenders to be on the road. What are some of the prerequisites for that, or is it like as is type of theme that we can imagine to suggest changes to?

While I love what you did to make it street legal, and Andy is a magician, a guy can't be a little sad about cutting off all that old home-tech booger welding. I love seeing how unsafe and janky those old racers were. As sketchy as it may have been - it won a lot of races. You did the right thing by making it safe for the road, but you know...sometimes a guy gets a bit nostalgic for the non-tech of the good ol' days, when you took your life in your hands just backin' it off the trailer... but then brought home the hardware and the trophy girl!

It had a a hack saw, a wood saw, a big flat screw driver, a hammer and a pair of VICE GRIPS In it. HE SAID THERE YOU GO KID. DONT TOUCH MY TOOLS UNLESS YOU ASK ME. VICE GRIPS became one of my go to’s ever since

Does that 280z have a Chevy 350 in it? It looks a lot like a buddys car that has passed several years ago. If not mistaken he built it in NM and then hauled here to Illinois where it was sold probably 30 years ago.

With all the modifications you will have to do to make to the body to make it street legal, it will totally alter the look and it will lose its appeal. Leave it as is, and if you don't want to race it donate it to someone who will keep the legacy alive.

YAY!!! The 777 is back in the spotlight! Great work, Andy! I've been worried about those shock mounts since Derek's first video on her. I'm ecstatic that she's going back on the road. I hate to see the Grill Grate Windshield 9000 go, but such is the price of progress. A few lights and mirrors and she'll be ready to rock. I can't wait...

Derek that is Awesome....I was hoping you would make it road worthy!!!! Andy did A GUY right.....Came out real nice and now way more sold up Front!!!! Awesome job Andy!!!! Got to get a windshield if you are going to travel RT. 66!!!!! I love the tires you got but you need better road tires.... We need your input as to whether or not you want to keep it Race ready or stock(as is now) looking inside but road worthy or maybe make it so you can have passengers inside.....Like put four or two race seats inside like in the INDEPENDENCE.....still would look Race like???? But sneakily make a dash board that is race looking or keep the current one out front but have a dummy dash so behind it you have a radio and A/C controls behind a panel???? Did I say AC??? Just a thought just for when you need it if going to a show in hot summer......Pop in and out Plexi windows.....So stock when you get to shows but on the way if it is cold or hot you have protection......Ewwwww the blue Plexi like the Evinrude snow bile windshield......That might be mean looking!!!! Hidden speakers??? Make the inside of the trunk like a Jewelery Box.....Sharp looking....or bag it and keep it stock......See here is were we need your input on.....Keep it mostly as is....but road worthy or go a bit past original condition but make it look original Old Race look??? Definitely Keep outside as is!!!! You can not touch that ever!!!!

Well it's all about safety. What you're going to need are some seat belts. I think if you took some 14/2 electrical cable. Well I guess you're going to need two pieces. You put a male plug on one end and on the other cable you put a female. Now what you do is take the ends with nothing on them and you use like a clove hitch to tie it to the roll cage. Now you get in and you plug the male into the female and you got a safety belt

Gorgeous work. I don't mean any disrespect and it really does look like Andy tried to keep the spirit of the car in the improvements but when you hack stuff off a car like that you lose a little bit of it's soul. The "boogers", although unsightly was the efforts of a man with a dream but limited expertise and obviously limited means. I know you'll keep that history alive but man... it hurt to see him cutting on that thing. Just my opinion... I could be wrong.
