Just about all of the body was made out of wood.

I just like chrome and the design of old taillights. Taillights aren't cool anymore :(

Rolled out the 911 and I've been on a car binge since. Lol. That car stole my heart in the driveway. :)

Big body and hot rod post! Anyways, BB will know, and others who frequent OC, that I bag on the LT1s ever so hard. Ughh. Well, this is the best sounding three fiddy I've ever heard.

Guy with a '67 Camaro built his own 180 degree headers. Specs, why's it waling?! Stock 350, 180 headers, h-pipe, Dynomax Ultraflows. That's it!

Same car, quick drive by. It's waling!

HIGHLY tuned 180 degree headers and exhaust on a 402 sbc '65 Impala. You WILL be CONFUSED. Skip to 132 once it's idling.

Overview. I was surprised to see it's got a dry sump system. 1st Impala, I think, to have one.

Gotta bump this thread since it's bump worthy.

Big wheels are all the rage, but I actually don't like how big wheels look on these old cars. I think it takes away from the lines of the car itself. Bubble tops always look great though. :rockon:



Coyote powered Fairlane.





'36 Chevy truck with a '60's flare. Looks great!





This isn't an MR car, but I've been thinking of going Ford Dude and building a 1st gen Mustang in a mid-engine configuration ala the concept of the Mustang. It's got the lines for it, just gotta' do it! Don't know how, don't know a thing about chassis engineering, or welding for that matter! :tongue: I'd shorten the front end of the car by several inches after the front wheels. Gotta do a fastback for the correct MR look.



I'd implement a period correct 289 block in the back here, along with 50 years of engineering update for the rest of the engine assembly. I think it'd great. Le sigh, full of so many ideas. I haven't seen anyone do this though.



Looks bad ass!



Here's me.
