You do realize that since you sectioned a V8 engine for this project you now officially qualify for "section eight". That used to be the term used for soldiers who were eligible for a discharge from service for psychological reasons. Before anyone goes all negative on me for mentioning this,I hold all military service personnel In the highest possible regard and this is only a nod to the builder for throwing yet another crazy log on the fire. One more step toward the twilight zone.

WELL!!!! As of this weekend it was red white and blue!! Shot the clear over it and the blue crazed under the clear...... So now it's a bird of a different color!!! It's green!!

Body section is mostly done, engine is almost done, just bent the tubes for the turbo's today! Thank you to Rick Chupa for the supplied turbos!! They look awesome on top of this power house...

So the question is!! Do you want to see the progress thus far? Or should I tease you all and make you wait for the finished build?? HMMMMmmmm???????
