About “Dark Shadow”

What makes a Ford Girl Go Bad? This car, lol. I purchased this car on ebay in January 2005. Shortly thereafter it was kidnapped for four months and completely gutted, with a 4th gen interior swap and went from a 305TBI to a 355 complete with a Flowmaster exhaust, Dynomax headers and 600 cfm Edelbrok carb to rumble monster under the hood, not to mention the purple w/blue pearl clearcoat custom paint. Too many upgrades to name, with the latest upgrades prepping her for the drag strip -- 4:10 rear, posi and ignition coil. Hopefully this spring I'll swap out the already beautiful engine for a 383 to make sure I hit those low numbers. Let me know what you think.
