Man whoever said 4 doors aren't cool has never seen your sedan. Like a GTO LIMO..... Have to get us some parking space together for the Dream Cruise. Hoping to have the new motor back next week, it was being balanced yesterday. Picked up a dual quad setup too at the Monroe Swap Meet low rise all underhood..... Have a Chevy 3:55 12 bolt posi waiting to go in but with gas where it is i am gonna wait and run the 2:56 peg leg a little while longer to break the motor in and get to Woodward for under 100.00....

Thanks man!
The video camera doesn't do the sound justice at all.
It snaps, crackles and pops like a mofo haha.

Drove it home with the 3.90 posi today. Holy crap.
punched it from a 20 mph roll in first. Instant redline, two fat black marks on the road...
Next up - drag radials for the street.
These wheels and tires will be exclusive for auto x and track days.

Haha, they don't know what hits them now...
When it's parked at a cruise night and I fire it up people always look around to find the mean car, but always look past mine hahaha
