    What do you guys think?


    I think it's incredible. My heart was racing as it watched this.

    I think its just an overdone show car. I can appreciate the time and work that went into it, but honestly just do not care for overly custom stuff like this. I dig the powerplant though.

    Disagree... That thing was purpose built to have the crap driven out of it.

    Beauty. He made it better. I don't think the car was a Boss 429 in the first place. Even if it was, I would still approve on the build. Not like he chop a T-top on the car. He made it better.

    bodie stroud is an artist who makes things better, and often times starts with junk that most restorers wouldnt even touch. i fully approve of his efforts. another mustang rescued from the scrap heap.

    I think anything is better then stock.How many time can you go to a car show and see a mustang with rally wheels and pony interior.That takes no thought process, just replacing parts. To design a car that all parts work together and look right isnt easy.

    He's an artist for sure and has a one off car. Plus like it was mentioned another Mustang saved from the junkyard

    one more nice thing is that stroud used a ford engine in a ford car. some builders would have put in a chevy motor, or even(shudder) a chrysler motor.

    I like it. Being in the middle of trying to restore one on my own I am simply blown away by the effort and work that was done to it. An unbelievable amount of work, that motor, incredible. Frankenstang!!
