Approaching Suicide


Well-Known Member
Over the years people have asked me why I called my T Approaching Suicide so here the reason

When I started the build, a 350HO with a dyno'd 357 HP was quite a strong motor for a T. Add to that the Kinsler and a final output of over 420HP.

A 'well known rodder in the UK took one look at the T with its Dan Woods front end (3 bar location) and said to me thats just Suicide. Knowing the front end has 5 locations (the 3 bars plus the two bell crank locations) I replied well Approaching it, anyway

Hence we have the name. Approaching Suicide stuck and has remained the name for the last xx years.
Aint going to change it now.
I like it :thumb:
