    Any old 'merican iron would require serious suspension mods and diet to come even close....
    My father and uncle rebuilt a GTO convertible that drove like Tron. (I grew up racing motorcycles and fast cars, so this is not a mythical rendering of the one cool car I ever saw.) I don't know what they did to it, but the only way those tires would let go was to stomp the brake, hold it, and hit the gas. There were lots of old Chevelles, Novas, and Camaros, a lot of them built to race (drag cars mostly), but that GTO was something else. Looked like it was a mile long, but felt like a small car when you were in it. Didn't have the bench portion of the backseat for long because they put the top down and hit the highway to see how fast it would go. Neither noticed that the wind sucked the seat out until they got back. Shiny black. Beautiful car.

    And nice car, Pete! Well done.

    Dart Sport, not a Duster yes that sold last June! The Cuda is pretty much finished so I was hoping to sell it at the big show here in town yesterday (+1,000 cars on the street in front of our store) but no bites as of yet. After 20 years in the car hobby I'm looking forward to getting out of it!
    Have you got G.A.S. for another EBMM???

    We finished the buffing last week so I added the trim around the glass and took it for a drive over the weekend. It handles like a go-kart, and now has 44 miles on the odometer.

    "After 20 years in the car hobby I'm looking forward to getting out of it!"
    Very long story short, I totally understand this sentiment...

    Back on track, any recent accidental buffings of EBMM's ??
    Enjoy Your Balls!!!
