Thanks for the comments. It's going to take between 4 and 5 weeks for the car to arrive...
Steve S - when I say not too radical, I'm comparing it to the countless 1000+hp motors that are getting around these days. This is a Big Al's street engine, which I think would be lucky to push 700. Here's a small block street car that I have that is making over 1000 on pump gas, but it's running on the edge while a 700hp big block will live forever:
Here are some more shots of the 68. The beauty of buying what someone else built is that I can point out things that I like without sounding like I'm full of myself! There is a lot to like about the car, as it seems to have been really well planned and executed. What I like in this shot is that you can't see a single electrical wire. (OK, except for where they attach to the coil...!) Oh yeah, and the blower looks OK
20x15 tucks a fair way up into the fender:
Room for the golf clubs and suitcases:
Carbon fiber Autometer gauges look good, but I'll have to wait and see what the billet style dash looks like in the flesh. Carpet looks a bit short up the firewall too...!
I love this photo - that you can see the coil overs, the Baer brakes, 4 link, the big rims tucked under the fender, and even that you can see the car has been driven by the exhaust soot on the paint!
