and no pics of the motor? You're killing us, ha! what motor does it have? that paint job is sweet

 

The hood doesn't pop very far lol. I only got one shot and it's blurry.

 

I'm sure Sydney will pop in here in a bit with more build info, but it has a 383 Stroker with I believe an 8-71 blower on it. Randy said it makes ~550hp at the wheels.

 

Perfect for AUTOCROSS!

I believe this is the car that consumed my favorite mint providers time from the Adams crew for a while recently. He was M.I.A. from the forum and had me worried sick. Thankfully he responded to me to let me know he was okay and working on a killer project.

 

Okay, I need to go get a single soft to wipe off my keyboard now! :D
