    A friend of mine did that very thing, regardless of doubts others may have had, by the end of a 1/4 mile believers were made. Sounded angry, always angry!

    Back in 2006 I rebuild a 2000 subaru impreza rs , I went to junk yards and found out how hard is to find parts for them, It was about six k after parts and changing the tires, gear box and many many repairs, hundreds of hours of body work, I loved that car it really drove great on the snow, is a labour of love.

    Labor of love, yes sir...that's about as much as one can say. I've got many late hours laboring with love between a Nova and few mustangs...and even friends "whatever's" I love them all...never been brand specific, I just love wrenching

    Thanks.

    It has a 489 BBC on nitrous, NHRA techs for 10.00, so I run 180 shot jets puts me around 10.17@131mph with a 1.39 sixty off the foot brake.

    Eventually I'll tech it for 8.50 and go to an all aluminum 632 with 20* heads.

    Back in the late `70s, my old roomie and I built up my `66 Corvair Corsa, using a Crown kit, converted it to mid-engine, with a 327/350 HP L79 installed where the back seat used to be, which gave it almost perfect 50/50 weight distribution with 2 people on board.

    We made a few light engine mods, it was probably putting down a little over 400 HP, and weighing in at slightly under 2600 lbs. made it big fun to drive.

    I took it to Englishtown once, it had a best run of 11.90s at 115 mph. That was easing it off the line, the U-joints were the weak link in the chain, and I didn`t want to break anything.

    The car was a real sleeper on the street, and destroyed plenty of Chevelles, Goats, Road Runners, Boss Mustangs, you name it. :bwah:

    Now that's a cool back seat!

    Bet you surprised a lot of people until they got a look in the back, before mine was roll caged and narrowed in the rear was pretty much all stock body and interior, had a full roller 396 BBC, use to have lots of run at the track running 12's with against mustangs and such.
