So he did, you’re here to witness it from the beginning: building up a fun/reliable shred car from scratch, with some fabrication and build lessons along the way.

    basic principals of contemporary american performance modification:
    buy obsolete
    remove safety / crumple zones
    remove emissions regulations
    add non standard tires, wheels and steering rack
    The per-barrel oil price guys at corporate will bloody love it. Real man's motoring.

    I love that you guys are actually really building personal vehicles , I have come very close to offering scotto a VW G60 supercharged corrado since he loves German vehicles and lots of other odd balls but have a feeling that the vehicle will show up driving and then just be tucked away or something is going on to happen ( I personally don't like German vehicles ) I live in a small town and don't want to see it go to shit in someone else's hands and personally see it driving around my local town

    Hey, Danger Dan, good to see you working on your own project finally! Can't wait to see the finished results. I'm sure it'll be freakin awesome! When you get done, you oughta take a trip out to Kentucky and help me finish my inline 6 powered 68 mustang road course/drift car! Some professional help would be much appreciated! Lol

    Why did Dan keep the strut towers in while working on the frame? I could be wrong, but that seems like a big inconvenience to me. You have to take it out anyway to put a full suspension kit in anyways, right?
