Summary:

It's super scary fun

Faults:

I'm not sure what would have gone wrong on this car because of how much I have modified it.

I have replaced the motor with a ford 351 Windsor. The rear axle is also a larger ford 7.5 axle.

The body was in decent shape when purchased, but it too has been changed. It was originally a four door, now two. The hood has a large cowl induction hood scoop for clearance of the new motor. The wheel wells were lengthened to fit the larger tires required for such power.

General Comments:

My goal when building this car was to have the fastest car in my town, I have not quite achieved this goal, but I am well on my way.

I would like to customize what is left of my interior, it doesn't seem too friendly and girls are some what wary about entering.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
