    What intake is that? I really like it and just wondering if they offer one for a low-deck Desoto? Steven.

    Great start. I'm still amazed at the cars you guys build with the difficulty you encounter getting the build material. Not many americans would be going overseas to buy a project. Keep us posted on the build.

    Looks like you need more shit to work on!:);) The coupe looks great, good to know their taking over the world! Good job man.

    edit: nice touch on the small stuff! I'm talking about the small wheels mounted on the frame horns...why didn't I think of that!
