The kid just got his car back on the road with some added power to go with the full 12 bolt setup we built last winter.

holy balls that thing sounds awesome! :devil:

For some reason I thought you had given up on it after the wreck and totalled it out?

Does he have a line-lock on there or is he heel-toeing to keep the brake on while shifting?

This is not the same 75. My buddy had an original 75 L48 4 spd he was tired of after 10 years so they made a deal and Kevin bought this one. Only had 51k miles on it drove pretty nice, 165 hp smooth idle, just what I would drive out in the country. He drove it 3 days and that was enough. He took all the custom parts I built for the white 75 that was totaled and put this car together in a month. He's on CF with more info, it's got a blower on it now, pushing about 475hp, 500 ft/lbs at the motor. I'll stick with my 325hp smooth idle:laughing:
The 4 speed isn't going to last if he continues like that, that is one we rebuilt last year too. Yeah line lock, no power steering or brakes.

Let's get some stickies on that thing and see how it does! Time for some time slips....:partyon:
Hi Gary
Well I think he's going to bring it to the track in a few weeks, his buddy has a flat bed and the track is 3 hours away.
That's his deal, good luck to him, I'd rather just build them these days.
