This is from 1993  just after I put the first 302 in it.... was around 300 horse, C-4 auto, 3.40 tracklock.   ran like a raped ape.  I miss driving it. but will again soon :)  I know not soon enough... but it will be worth the wait :)

The beginning

This image is from back in 1992 just after I had it painted.  I have a Picture from when I first got it, but will have to dig it up, and its not of the whole car.....
