About “Rose”

I bought this about 2 years ago. The interior was shot and the motor was a piece of crap. So I started to slowly piece together the interior. Seats where first, then the dash front and back, then center console, then door panels. After i got the interior done I threw some nice bullet hole rims and fat tires on it.

About “Frankenstein”

Ive had this car for over 17 years lets just say its a work in progress. It started out life a bone stock 318 2-bbl. As you see it now has a 440 built with all the goodies. Been sitting for about 5 years and i finally have time to work on it.
