thanks for all the interest, uestions, tc. i figured i would add a couple notes to the description. the sticker kit does come with the car as well as the factory seats. as with all hotrod cars, here are a couple things that should be pointed out. the car was going to be even more of a drag car, o there are no wipers installed, he e-brake is removed, tc. the car does have a couple things here and there, ut overall it is a super car. built right and runs/drives solid. please let me know if there is any other questions or other pictures needed, tc. i'm adding a couple others tonight also.

if any of you are close enough, ome check out this car. if you hear it, ee it, nd drive it, ou will see what it's all about. sounds great and revs quick. other than the cowl hood, lends in pretty well, ut goes like crazy. built in air/fuel gauge in the dash and a low oil light also. fits in the dash like factory pieces.

after this car didn't sell the first time, e took the car to the dragstrip. car ran 11.36 @121mph on a humid day. this is a bargain for this much car. think about it. you can beat up on hellcat, 06's, ew corvettes, TR's, tc. etc. let me know if any questions. thanks! Steve
