  8. That Looks awfully familiar
  9. Good thing you found that mess behine the moldings. Everytime you washed the car, that crap would come out and ruin your wash job. You should have seen the load of pine needles behind my car and under the hood.
  10. Looks nice, specs on the motor?
  11. sorry guys havent been on in a while, i broke my ankle during summer and didnt get much done on the car so now im back to working on it

    the specs on the motor are:
    90 stock bottem end new rings and bearings
    95 cobra gt40 iron heads home ported
    trick flow valve spring upgrade
    e303 cam
    eddy performer rpm intake
    holley 650 double pumper

    i got to run it once last year at the track, no tune and on nitto drag radials
    went 13.1 @107.5mph with a 1.99 60ft so theres alot left
    im switching to longtubes and going to t5z trans and aluminum driveshaft
    also installing sub frame connectors, reinforcing the torque boxes, and changing up the rear suspension . my goal is to run high 11s on the motor and it can be done

    i will also be painting the car , over the winter so stay tuned guys

    glad to be back
