Finally finished the roadster project!
« on: May 11, 2019, 07:58:22 PM »
I started with this...….



9 years and $4800 later I wound up with this...…







Handbuilt from scratch.  Powered by a 350hp computer controlled, fuel injected, turbocharged 2.3 liter 4cyl.  T5 trans and Ford 8" rear.  This thing goes like a bat outta hell and gets 30 mpg!  I do need to get some lower gears in the rearend, though.  Proof positive, hot rod's can still be built for under 5 grand!

Here's the build thread...….
