LOOKS AWESOME TONY!


THIS WILL HAVE TO GO ON THE LIST WITH THE ARDUN :)


WILL THERE BE ANY OPTIONS FOR THIS, LIKE FINNED VALVE COVERS OR INTAKE MANIFOLDS?

Santiago..... I have purchased a good deal of parts from TDR and you are right that they have awesome detail. I have a list going for more parts I want. I just need to get the extra cash to purchase. My current funny car build has TDR's Lenco transmission in it and you can't beat the detail on it.
