    Radius out the rear fender wells, drop the rear, more period correct wheels and paint the hood.... Although I would change color.... Maybe a bright orange...

    If I was going to spend 8000.00 on a car I’d build it myself but that’s just me building it is the fun part

  7. Buy it and go have fun if that's what you want, there's lots of opinionated A-holes here that'll tell you everything but what you want to hear, it's not their money or life, do what YOU want to do.

    Are you into drag racing? It might be fun. I'd be more inclined to build something I could drive around on the street, but that's just me.

    I agree, but I gave no details. Hmnn. The words in the ad are generic, go look at it... how was it built, etc. kinda like my ex. Looks good, I really do t want another ride

    Come on, you know the drill around here. It is really hard to help out with advice on some subjects without pictures.

  16. Do you want it? can you afford it? if the answer is yes you answered your own question, sleep om it overnight and if you still feel the same way go for it.HRP

    I would buy it and make it my own. Radius wheel wells as others have said and different wheels. Of course I would definitely look it over well and drive it first. Ron

    You do know what's going to happen if you don't buy it? your going to join "the one that got away club". I've renewed my membership in this club too many times than I can count over the years.

    Go look at it. Back yard build? How long ago? How many runs on drivetrain? Ask a lot of questions

    Is it street legal? if not you need a trailer and a truck to pull it.
