    I've been building this car on and off for the past three years. I've been through three different bodies until I finally found the one I really wanted. These are just some pictures of the frame, hopefully getting the motor in next week. It's a 471 on top of a 350 with a mag.

  15. Looks awesome dude! Get those ladder bars on hippy! Any thoughts on running a panhard bar on the front end? It will really cut down on shimmy and front end wobble. Just a heads up
