Well, I'm a SBC fan myself, but I've came to the realization that there are rice burners that will blow the doors off most SBC out there, with prolly less money in them. I still love RWD burnouts though.

ok, come on be honest, it looks cool, the problem is it doesnt have the power to back it up, but somehow i doubt it won any trophies, seems to be that all the cars that are somewhat tasteful never win its gotta have chrome and vinyl all over it, ok but before anyone says OMG UGLY consider this, if you had never seen that before, it did not exist as a hyundai, and then lotus, lambo, ferrari, any supercar company made that with performance behind it you would all be drooling.

UPDATE!!!

just noticed this: "(the wheels in the picture have been sold, but they were in bad shape anyways.. scuffed up and bent)"

also consider the previously mentioned tranny at 50k miles, what kind of car that has been 'babied and driven real easy' has bent, scuffed rims, and needs a tranny at 50k miles?

Please don't take this the wrong way, but you're nuts.
The Chevy 350 is one of the cheapest, easiest, most effective engines in the world to modify. You can get a running 350 from any junkyard in the world for about $100, drop $1500 in parts in it, drop it in a $500 dollar beater, and stomp a $20,000 import into the dirt.

I didn't get the impression the car won a trophy, the way I read it the sound/loudness of his amps and subs won the trophy...LOL

You might want to edit that post - not sure how the mods/admins will take to it
