    Nice looking Fox! I have an '86 SVO but it still needs a lot of work.

    dont frett kido.today there are more and more awsum muscle cars being made.425 hp dodge chargers(4 door i know?),or the 400hp ls2 powered pontiac GTO?It dont get no more retro muscle than the new ford mustang!
    i came up at the tail end of the muscle car era.clss of 76.luckily there were still tons of 67-71 stangs,camaros,mopars ect for cheap!but man o man durring the late 70 and most of the 80 cars were o so borring!a 1976 corvette sting ray with a l 48 350 put out a dismal 160 hp.the newly introduced 78 mazda RX7 with 100 hp rotary would walk those mid/late 70 vettes not to meantion what a 77-78 datsun(nissan) 280 would imbarrans er qr w

    The only thing good that came out of the early 80's was the buick GSX what a power house for a v6 turbo that thing blew away all comers of the early and late 80's and late 70's cars

    That was more middle-late 80's but yea Grand Nats were one of the best back then!

    And they can still kick but today in a straight line.

    I've done all the work on it myself except for the paint and aligning the front end.

    340 balanced and blue printed
    11-1 Arias pistons
    etc.

    Fiberglass hood and front fenders,had bumpers to but got tired of them this year and bought newly chromed ones on ebay

    Narrowed rear end 430 gears

    Cars was originally a all drum brake car now has tubular upper control arms and disc's off a 74 dart and 11 inch rear drums off of a Chrysler newyorker.I also replaced the master cylinder with a plastic one from an 80 model dodge and added an adjustable proportioning valve

    Had the car since 1981 and change something every year
