    This will probably be a slow thread as my car is a really good driver at the moment as it is. Its just ugly lol

    I bought this car around August of 2013 pretty much in the current condition its in.
    Since then:
    Tranny fully rebuilt with a new turbo action converter
    Rear end rebuild
    I yanked the old rusty shorty headers out and ceramic coated them

    Originally a white/white 318/727 car it now has a big block B383

    Sometime this year I plan on starting the body work. When I bought the car I received every body panel I need with it; quarters, trunk floor, wheel wells, filler panel between trunk and rear window

    Also planning on building a fuel injection system for the 383 sometime soon too. Unless I come across a 440 shortblock before then

    Hey MBP, is this the same one for GMFS? If not, welcome anyways.

    Love the challenger you got. Is the body really bad enough to replace the panels? Look forward on watching this build on here!

    Just watched some of the videos, man that beast sounds mean!

    TTI has a system and would look a whole lot better under there compared to the slapped together shit it has now
