      Had a 66 Mustang Fastback (and a 65 FB) which I really liked. It also had nice styling but man, I got so sick of dumb stuff breaking...stuff that never should have so I got rid of them and concentrated on Mopars.

            I love the Top Fuel type tires on it in the picture. Are you going to run them or get like my taller skinnier tires?

                    It's been awhile....moving on the 'cuda. All together now, with wheels and tires. It has a hemi Denny coil over front suspension in it. Man, is that thing nice! The room it is going to give me to be able to work on this thing, is more than worth the price! I have been keeping tabs, and when all done I will give a final cost to build, if anyone is interested.

                    I have also have started on the motor. Should be about 900-950 hp. the motor specs:

                    601 cubic inch
                    Indy aluminum RB block
                    4.550" bore
                    4.625 stroke callies crank
                    Indy 572-13 heads head porter says about 410-420 cfm. we will see on that one...

                    cam motion solid roller 288-290 @.050 .800" with 1.7 Jessel rockers
                    Isky e-z roll max bushed lifters

                    I am hoping to have the car weigh about 3200 lbs. It is a 4 speed car as well. Should be a wild ride!!!

                    When the motor dynoes I will post the results.

                    here are a few pics....
