I finished building this street rod in 1978 and drove it every day until I sold it in 2004, a total of 26 years from Orlando Florida to Bangor Maine-New London Connecticut to Portland Oregon with no serious break downs.

It had a modified Corvair A-frame front suspension - rack & pinion steering gear-Corvette rear suspension- 350 Chevy V8 and Automatic tranny. Weighing in at just under 2000 pounds, the four wheel 11 inch rotor four piston Delco-Moran caliper brake system would make your glasses slide off at full braking and never skid a tire ! The 350 HP V8 would pin you to the seat under full acceleration too. This "bad boy" was way ahead of its time in 1978 when few production vehicles had the same options.

Sadly a marriage gone bad forced me to sell it.
