History
Bought the car when I was 18 years old for $2,000. Drove it as my only vehicle while fixing it up. Street racing was a big deal at the time and through 4 motors 12 trannys and 3 rear ends I was only beat one time. At which time I retired the car for proper resto. It sat on hold through a few years of boats, trucks, and motor cycles until recently when I have gotten back on it.
