Where have I seen that car before? Fox t-bird cougar forums? I really like the hood. Did you cut the center and raise it or is it glass? Thats the only bird ive seen before this site with a big block.

Alan,

That 83 sure looks good!! What size tire do you have on the back of your 83? Did you have to modify wheel well to fit?

Thanks. Those tires are 325-50-15 BFG DR. It has Fox Stang axles with a small 1/4 spacer. The draglites are 9 in wide with a 5.5 backspacing. No fenderwell mods except for rolling the inside lip.

Here are some pics of my custom Center Line Auto Drags (15 X 10 with 6.25 Bs.) Also, 325 BFG DR....also, no fenderwell mods except lip rolling. Can't wait to get my 512 in it.
