    My driveway is on an angle so the second pic may look like the wheelwells are a little high, they aren't. So it was nice out and i fixed my sticking sending unit in the fuel cell and put the draglites on. The sizes are 15x8, 15x5, the backs have 5.5" BS, I had to use 1/4" wheel spacers on the fronts to clear the brakes. The tires sizes in the back are 275/50/15, fronts are 195/60/15. Enjoy the pics..........

    Agreed. Also, i know it's a 460 and you need hook clearance but for me, that hood does nothing but throw off the lines of the car. I'd sooner get a shaker/snorkel setup and let it stick out the top. But, that's just me...sweet car!

    They were rubbing on the caliper a little, a 1/4" spacer made them fit perfect. I dont think i have factory brakes up front.

    Nice, but i think regular street tires may be a waste on that car. Should opt for some drag radials.

    Well, im not a huge drag racer, i enjoy it on the street the most, i mostly just cruise around and put the occasional chevy or ricer in their place. I built it to be street friendly. IF i had built it for the track, you could bet there'd be mini-tubs, a huge solid roller cam, 11+ compression, with a built c4 tranny. Im happy with it, engine wise, but it needs LOTS of body work.

    Hey this just dawned on me...even if you did get your car tagged, you WILL get pulled over for that hood. I've been warned about 4 inch cowls because of obstructio of view...you're gonna have to be reeeeal sneaky to avoid the po po with a hood that big.

    I had it on last summer, nobody gave me any problems. Theres also a 87 grancd prix with a 455 and a huge cowl that drives on the street. Cops around here dont care about your hood or how loud your exhaust is.

    I dont know if this is legal or not but it doesnt really matter since the cops dont give ya crap for your hood, but I would drive around with the hood off and flaunt that thing
