General Information

Got the car in 2004 as a 6 cly 170ci. Went to two Car Craft shows. Then cut it up, as they say. Started out to be a small block bracket car, but went over board with the chassis. The car was mocked up with the small block, but the 351W was not complete, needed all internel parts. Then in 08 I think, not sure without looking, I found a great deal on a 484, (460 truck block), that was reworked into a 600hp on the motor, 800hp with a 200 shot- NOS monster. Got the deal of the century. Cost a few bucks to go from a smally to the BBF, but worth it. Now as of 2015, the drive train is done, working on assembling the rest of the body parts and gathering cash to do the wiring. Man, parts are expensive.... hopefully soon.
