Vehicle specs: My car is a factory big block fully optioned car. Unfortunately, when I got it, all the good stuff at been removed.

 

The car is now equipped with a fully built, 351W bored .40 over with a Paxton Novi 1200 supercharger. That's backed by a Tremec 3550, 5 speed transmission and a Ford 9" with 4.11 posi rear end. Vehicle sits on RideTech 4 link and shockwave airbags on all four corners. The suspension is run by RideTech E3 compressor and computer.

 

The body has several added body parts to include a 3" cowl induction hood, Shelby upper scoops, Eleanor lower scoops, front racing valance, Shelby trunk, Shelby tai lights, GT rear valance, and a shaved cowl panel. The paint is Mercedes black, with "hot rod satin" racing stripes. The side scoops were molded into the body to appear that they were a part of the car and not just bolted on.

 

Why this car? I've always had a love for classic mustangs. Once I saw the "Gone in 60 seconds" remake, I had to have a 67-68 Mustang Fastback.

 

What got you into muscle cars? My dad has always been a car nut. I just inherited his love for muscle cars.

 

What's your earliest memory of muscle cars? When I was in elementary school, my dad bought a 1967 Chevrolet Nova. I remember him getting on it. It was only a 305 but it felt like a dragster to me. 

 

How many cars have you built? Just this one so far. I have three more that need to be completed.

 

How long have you owned this car? I've owned it since Senior year of High School, so about 10-11 years.

What does American Racing Wheels mean to you and why did you choose our wheels? American Racing makes a timeless and classic wheels. I've always loved the design of the Torq Thrust. Many companies try to recreate, but they never come close.
