Default new to this

Hey everyone. I have a 67 Pontiac lemans and I'm dropping a Buick 455 in it. What I'm doing is building a drag car I can post pics when I get home but anyone have any tips for me?

Welcome to the site. Look forward to seeing the car. Make sure the trans can handle the power. Drag racing is about pushing until something breaks, fix it stronger and wait for the next part to break. Rear end, drive shaft, and trans are going to be your breaking points.
