    Cons

    Car is beat up scratches and dents

    That's pretty cool. Not a lot of traffic on this forum any more. You could try posting this link on the Super Coupe Club of America facebook page. It would get more views. Unfortunately facebook has all but killed car forums these days.

    I'd be interested if it had a full interior and was more of a street car. Lots of good parts on this thing though. Did you ever run it after building it? What kind of times did it run in the 1/8th or 1/4 mile?
