Thank you very much. I will answer some questions. First, the cammer is made up of a thunderbolt block and trans. Front cover and intake is Ross Gibson resin. Heads and cam covers are Jo Han carbs are thunderbolt water pump and belts are also thunderbolt. Lots of small mods to all parts to get them to play nice. Carbs are thunderbolt and air cleaners are 427 cobra pieces. Had alot of questions about wheels, they are phantom Vickie pieces. Took a bit of work to get them to mount since rm uses those metal pins now. The rears took the most. New rear frame was made as well as moving springs inside the rails, lowering blocks and mini tubs. I tried to make it look like they just fit but without a lot of work they will not just fit this model

This is just sooo sharp looking Fred! The color, wheels/tires and that big thumping cammer engine goes together perfect! Well done!

She looks really sweet, Fred.  I've been thinking about pro streeting one of these.  The stance you've achieved with this really gives me a great idea of what mine would look like.  Great paint, fantastic job on your rear frame/suspensions mods.  Just a super clean job all the way around!
