How to make an ugly Shelby Clone

Ok, maybe green isn't such a good color after all.

Be careful, he may like it!

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.

Jason, this other car on eBay looks like a nice one to drop your 428 into.

Donna, it's in your area, know anything about it?

I think I will be starting with a S code. If I can find one with a auto and a tach I will be 3/4 of the way there. small block stuff would have to be changed and I would like to have the S code motor as a spare. Of course after yanking the 390 I am sure I would completely detail it as well. Will be a conversation piece in my garage.

I have the original 289 out of my GT/CS and my soon-to-be 9 year old son is starting to show an interest in mechanics. I think we may have to rebuild it together.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

No Arlie, I haven't seen that car before. It's a sweet looking clean car but the inserts in the seats almost look like they are cloth instead of the wrinkle finish.
There must have been a car show in Havasu over the weekend though cuz as I was leaving town yesterday there were hot cars all over the place.

I'm going to be out of commission for a couple of weeks, so hold the fort down okay?
