Late '60's, early '70's Muscle cars! They are the original breed for Power! Some GearHeads even used NOS!

Nothing better than a modified V8 engine...

Thinks back to his '72 Metallic Silver Nova, 350 with headers. Corvette Borgwarner T10 4-speed shifter. BF Goodrich G60 T/As with 14' Cragers. 411 PosiTrac and a Craig two-speaker stereo system. 8) It was the BOMB! :peace:

Yeah. That's me (no not the four-legged one!).

Nice pics!! It looks like you're putting a lot of sweat and blood into that car.

Good job!

Just a suggestion: invest $50 in a few 4' flourescent shoplights, the more the better. More efficient than those incandescent bulbs, and easier to work. You will be able to work longer without getting as tired. Trust me. I put 12 4' double tube lights in my basement, and its literally like night and day (replaced 5 60-75 watt bulbs). Less shadows, doesn't seem so dreary, etc.
Dual Barton Mobile 1.8ghz
Venice 3000+ @ 2.6ghz
lots of BP6s and two VP6s all apart currently
