    Actually I call it "The Beast" and the back bumper has "BEAST" stencilled on the right hand side like a CUCV.

    454 (0.060" Over) from '73 Chevelle police car, Quadrajet from Cadi 500, Holley Pro-Strip Annihilator ignition. 490HP/590ft-lb

    SM465/NP205

    4" suspension lift + 3" body lift. 3/4T 10-bolt front, 14bFF rear. 4.56 gears. 39.5x18x15 Boggers (for awesome, monkey-stomping action)!

    It had 2 of the Hella 4000 lights mounted in the grill, but I rear-ended (and destroyed) a '02 Grand Prix which broke the glass out of one. I took it off until I can get a new glass assembly for it. So for now it's in Pirate mode, one eyed.

    The tiger stripe was kind of hard to do, because it was difficult to find tape flexible enough to do the curves without sticking so bad it would pull off the [fresh] green paint. We ended up using electrical tape, cheap Duck brand at $0.47/roll at Walmart. Worked great.

    Judging from the specs that thing'll get around. I bet your buddies know who to call when they get stuck! lol

    Yeah, I was debating that because only the passenger-side rear wheelwell is rusty. The driver-side one is fine, and I haven't had any real problem with tire rub in the rear.
