    I won this car for $350 at an auction and am turning it into a Ford version of Smokey and the Bandit!

    Guess it's worth $350...You probably got more invested in the radio equipment than you do in the car!

    The funny thing is we didn't expect to win at such a lowball. My best friend and I (40 years!) have always wanted a racing team. So we bid on this car and a week later it was in his driveway. We're going to strip it down to be a track car!

    Not sure the radio is going to make the final version, but we do have a supercharger for it, some good suspension parts and coil overs! Our only rule was do it old school.. like when we were teens.. second hand parts, nothing new!

    I'll post back as it continues to evolve!

    You ain't kidding! I love to watch people's eyes in my rear view mirror... they start at the car and then their heads go sideways and you can see their eyes go to the top of the antenna! Hilarious!

    TheRATT , what a score for $350 ! As a life time Drag Racer these things are fast and hook hard if set up right ! But used parts ? Some are OK I'd rethink used coil overs (jmo) . Check out the site " Racing Junk " good stuff there . You need any input feel free to PM me . I worked for Gene Snow " The Snowman " AA/FC back in the the 70's . I finally got out of track drag racing about 10 years ago . Good Luck on your venture ! 73 and God Bless , Leo :)

    The coil overs are new. Can't be stupid about things!

    But the superchargers were used (we have a roots type and a pro charger, not sure which to try first)!

    TheRatt , myself I like The " Roots" type charger , Iv'e had some experience with them , just because I'm old plus and I like the look ! :LOL: I actually have been looking @ a few for a 508 bbc . Motor.... "Yes" , Car .... still looking I had a 69' Chevelle I was checking out but to lazy to drive and trailer it back . I talked with an old friend just yesterday and he just picked up a 41' Willy's out of Cali , so who knows depending on what happens we might try it out in that as a Nostalgia Drag Car . Hey, why not ? It already has wheelie bars on it !:ROFLMAO:

    357,

    I like roots too for looks! I'm not sure how much performance difference there is between the two.

    I'm a Chevy guy too and that 508 sounds awesome!!

    I've always wanted to do a Fiero up with a 3.8V6 supercharged! I've seen a few on YouTube and they're quite the sleeper!
