Default the wife's 1975 pontiac astre...

think "vega" with a firebird nose & tail lights.
this little monster is CRAZY-its got a 10-1 piston
327, a 280/.495/106 isky cam, roller top end on
2.05 fuelie vette heads, a 2600 stall and 3.73 gears.

its making 375-400hp, and it weighs 2400lbs
with the V8 in it...of course theres also weld in
subframe connectors, a 4 point bar, an engine
bay brace, modified pickup points in the rear
suspension, poly bushings front to back,etc...

she had the centerlines custom made for this car by
centerline wheels themselves, and as for the hood bird...
well....it IS a pontiac. cant fault her for that.

again, can you tell pink is her favorite color?

Sweet build. You might want to think about some bigger rear meats for that thing. I bet it could use 'em.

totally--but the current 15x7 with 245-60-15 is the biggest that will fit without radiusing the outer fender, so probably not--unless ed mcmahon finally delivers that check hes been promising me for years....
