About “Carmen”

1988 IROC-Z. The car started off witha Tuned Port 305 and a 5 speed transmission. Since I have owned the car, I put in a 1973 l48 350 out of a Vette. I dropped in a new transmission as well, and geared the rear end. THe car is defiently well balanced show and go because of the new paint and 3"hood, as well as the Weld Prostars
