This bird was my best Friend's (1:1) car before he died on 9/11 but his was made to look like this in Long Island, We had so much fun Hooking it up and going out to Brooklyn to race it....After that, his widow wanted to sale it to me but I did't have $15000 at the time, This car was loaded, He save the original engine and replaced it with a 400 cid from a 70 FireBird rebuilt polish crank, Holley Carbs, Hi-rise maniflo, Recaro seats, Bose System, Nitrest bottles, custom rear axle, KYBs shocks/Spring sets and more....Boy! do I missed a lot....its not the same anymore without him....:cool:

Sorry to hear that.

That's a nice casting though :)
Thanks Buddy, am currently looking for it in a Kit Form so I could built it and place it in a display case for my new Hobby/office room in 2013...hopefully before my B-day in April.....:thumbsup:
