“My Hot Rod”
Head to Head
I got this car off eBay in January 07. It is in great shape, with decent miles. It is the 35th Anniversary Edition, with 18" F500 Cobra wheels. 4.6 LITER V8. A Viper alarm and in-dash DVD/MP3/CD player with flip up screen were installed in early February 07. A Magnaflow exhaust was installed at the end of February 07 and a custom flame paint job was laid down on 2/19/07, with Majestic paint and pink outline. There is a list of other things waiting to be done, just waiting for the money first.
About “My Hot Rod”
I bought this car in April 2005 in fair condition, and have started making it what I want it to be. This will be an ongoing process for years.
I did all the body work and paint myself, now that it's done I'm turning my attention to the engine. I'm dropping in a 393 stroker this year, and rebuilding the T-5. I've ordered the short block and have the old engine out and dismantled. I hope to have the car running with the new engine by Memorial day. Again I'll be doing all the work myself, as that's what the car hobby is all about in my eyes.
Update: The 393 is in and running good.
Anybody with money can have a shop build a car for them, but they will never have the satisfaction that comes with knowing you've done it yourself.
