    upgrades so far... two 12's and an 1000 w rockford fosgate amp, removal of trash and 1 tank of gas and a whole lot less tread on the tires... :D

    this thing does awsome donuts and full speed in reverse j-turns :saweet:



    current/future plans...


    "accidently" blow the motor atfter I get another daily driver with nice mpg's, then swap in a 22r with a TRD cam and upgrades, or a vortec v-6,


    sleeeeper :waytogo:

    I'm amazed... I can't say I've ever seen one of those in my entire life that looks that good... Seriously, every one I see is rusted, hasn't seen a car wash in years, the interior is piled up to the windows with garbage, and the driver probably weighs about 600 pounds and is eating a cheeseburger...

    Heh... good stuff... now put a 302 (waiting for the bashing that is invariably going to take place for that comment) in it, and watch the tyres burn off of it. =)

    a mustang two or a fox chassis front suspension looks to be damn near the same track width...

    it be kind of interesting to swap in a mustang suspension and a nasty f@rd small block :blush:

    also a quick laugh, when I showed it to my friend today I called it my sleeper,


    he looked at me all excited and made me pop the hood, after I did he got all dissapointed and looked at me funny,


    the I said,


    it is a sleeper, the motor must be taking a nap from how slow this thing is :crazy:

    sure, swap in the Mustang suspension, but go Bowtie for the power. you can get the exact same output out of a SBC as you can a SBF, and for alot cheaper.

    I'd go with a 3.4 HO and a 5 speed, maybe the rear axle will survive then. Use a carb'd intake from a 2.8, and the sep coil HEI dist for clearance, put some quiet mufflers on it and go smoke some ricer butts!!!!

    The rear axle would survive just fine even with a warmed over SBC.

    93-95 Camaro as a donor. my buddy has a '94 Firebird with a 3.4 and an auto. plenty of get up and go, in a smaller car it would probably go like hell.
