    I got a new ride today. I even drove it on the trailer. would have drove it home but it don't have a tag. I'll take care of that tomorrow. And get ins on it so I can drive it while I work on it. It has a FORD V-6 auto in it now. But I can change that. I have a 350 TPI that I can drop in it, with a 700R4 tranny. But it drives NO POWER at all. Double feet on the brakes to stop. But good petal. Slow take off, very high gears. No spinning the tires.LOL.:D:D Will break out the Flat black paint first thing. Can't take that YELLER.....

    it would look better a lot of different colors than the yellow it is now. but an altitude in the back would help loads more...

    Nice car with great potential. lose those square indicators in the front and it'll instantly look a whole lot better...

    Great score, but dont' rag on the the V6 too badly. It's gotta be grunting to move that much tin around.

    Thanks for the kind works. I shot gray primer over the black today. It looks a lot better. Trying to figure out how to get the back end down about 4'' so it don't look like its going down hill all the time. Any Ideas? RUSTY
