    Some very nice cars in there. The quality of the work done on them looks very impressive. I particularly like picture 020, that looks awesome.

    Cheers for posting them Tony! :drinks:

    Sure, you got money? I'll look for them and then find them and then look at Gaz's instructions on how to post them and then put them away because I'm so confused. Got a 68 convert mustang sitting down south of here I need to pick up. Pretty rough but try to find one under £25000. The 66 I have a complete new interior pony package and a pile of other parts ready for a complete restore. 289-271hp v8- auto with about 95000 mi, interior is the rare white/ turquoise combo with white exterior.

    T-tony, showed the pic of my car to my brother yesterday and he thinks that BBC will fit nicely with a six speed and the 40" ford 9" rear end I have tucked away. What do you think. 500+ hp in a Z3? Jim

    That's fairly radical Jim. Didn't I just read your advice to a new owner " Try it first before doing any mods, you might like it" lol.;) Got to admit it would be FFAAASSSTTTT!!!!!!

    Didn't say I was doing it , but it would be fast alright. Can you picture it with those twin 3-71 superchargers sticking up over the tunnel ram and dual quads?? The model A that's being built will likely only weigh about a ton and with a 350 chev v8 will likely smoke tires in all gears even with the auto trans. Can't wait for it to be finished and see it run the quarter mile. One of the girls involved in building it cut a 0.0000 light in their other car. Talk about luck!! This is the third year they've been building and the kids are so pumped up to get it to the race track. When this one is done I'm taking another body of the same type and they'll build me an old style rod so they can race each other as well as other schools. JIM

    Those kids are about 2000 miles away in British Columbia. Google Pine Falls, Mb -vernon, BC So I don't get to play with them, only when I drive the 20-25 hrs to get there. Will do though for the first races to see how the car does and drop off the second body. They already have most parts for the second there. It'll be an old style rod , the first has mustang ll suspension and a 4 bar link in rear, all modern stuff. JIM

    Rich, I'm sure I mentioned it in another thread. But hasn't snowed since last week so spring may be around the corner. Wish I knew which day summer was going to be this year. Snowman business is shot for now but could pick up again in June with a bit of luck. HT hasn't come up with a suitable avatar so far, must not have seen the post. JIM
