     A sled with the head sticking out of the hood.    First sleds came to mind would be  RTX Skiroule  Auto Ski , Porter EXT something on that line or just build a custom of some brand X.  Gilson, Wheel horse, Ski Whiz, Herter something on that line but build a custom hood so the head sticks out.    Just some ideas.

    Something small I'm thinking too. Low profile. Speedway maybe. That head would be a natural.

    I'd rather eat crumbs with bums than eat steaks with snakes.

    That could be cool. Just let it all hang out.  :)

    RTX was 1st thing I thought of too!  That would be way cool, but probably get a little expensive unless you could do a clone of sorts.   How about a Chap chassis with modded hood?  They are light, and can be bought on the cheap. Or maybe '75 Lynx FA chassis.  That motor would look good sticking out of that hood too!

    sorry I have not said anything about the motor at this point im still trying to decide on a chassis there is a indy 400 that looks like it might be a good idea but i have also found a stinger pipe for it and sounds great
