    its making a big improvement i think so, its came far along in a month for being 18 years old in a college and just throwing extra money into this car i have to wait to get a new clutch its on its way tho and then all i have to do is rewire the engine and she willbe ready to have the motor dropped in im hoping to have it done by may31 import faceoff in montgomery its a 3 month build on a college kind of budget getting good deals and some friends helping me do everything. so ill hopefully have the motor in and running and the car painted in the nest 2 weeks ill keep it updated when i get new stuff

    Hey man, didnt know you were going with Championship white as your final color. I saw the pirmer yellow pics you left in my thread so i decided to check your thread out. Championship white is what my car will be when finished, and damn is it sexy. Good Choice. I'll race you to whoever finishes there car first. Haha
