Yeah at some point the rear fender wells will be finished and with a full tank of gass etc she should sit perfect! the back windows are painted black (had spots on them from welding spatter!) but the sides are probably going to be a light tint....

IT'* F'N LOUD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I tried to do a video from inside the car after that 0-70 run but i fell off the milk crate and even then you cant hear me and Al hollering at each other on the camcorder!

deffinatly need to finish the rear firewall and put a flomaster 2 chamber on the 3800!

Thats a good one Dr Jay! just how i imagine it! we can even start the 3800 while driving down the road! so we could do a 40-100mph run if we needed to!

Well per a suggestion i timed the 0-70mph run from the video i posted.... and using the video editing program, I have 6.25 seconds from the frame just before the launch to the frame he lets off the GO pedal at 70 mph!!!!
this is only a little slower than a 99 Corvette or an 04 Subaru WRX STi!!!!!
and since the corvet ran 13.6 in the 1/4 and the WRX STi ran 13.2 I think it'* safe to say we have a 13 second W-body sleeper on our hands with less than $2000 total investment!

not bad fer Redneck/Lowbuck Hotroddin!

Cant wait to turbocharge the rear 3800!
