Saw this during the pre-cruise hubbub at the St. Ignace show today. Easily my favorite car at the event.

I can't decide whether or not I like it... seems a bit over the top.

does it have a desmogged SBC as well?

Yeah- I questioned the logic behind that too. :lol:

Yes, it does have the wrong engine (SBC) but at least it's a 327, the one small block Chevy actually worth having.

if i were building a model of it, i'd probably not put so many holes in it. granted, they're probably in the hood for good functional reasoning.... Fairlanes of that year are not really heavy cars, so dropping the front bumper and a-arm suspension more than likely gives the 327 good weight transfer.

it does reek of attitude.... props for that!

$16 grand. A few bucks more than I had in my pocket, I'm afraid. :D
