A ton of labor, engineering, care, and $$$$$$ went into this build and as expected it runs and drives like a new modern car, stops on a dime, handles like a sports car, sounds incredible, and was built for reliability. The body and paint is flawless and you could eat off the underside of the car.Although it looks like a trailer queen, it was built to drive. I have all receipts, photo - documentation of the build, a book documenting the build, and several show boards.
After 26 years of ownership, it is time to build another dream car. Good luck with the bidding.
