Beautiful car!

I like the photo too, it's technically perfect, maybe a bit dark...

It's a built 302..trick flow heads, edelbrock carb, headers, al flywheel, racing oil pan...etc

Around 2400 lbs and 350-360hp. It's an absolute blast to drive

Might have to re-shoot and try that now that I have learned some more, I'm still getting used to using an SLR camera.

That car must be a blast to drive. I have loved those since my high school years.

Tell dad it looks like he did a great job. Your pics prove it.

Thanks to both of you. :D

#1: The light on it is good, but a bit more room at the front would be nice.
I thought those were a GREAT idea when they came out. He did a fine job on it!
