Now that I have finally made it back to work I may finally have the money to work on the drag car I bought a couple of months ago. I dont know much about the engine except it is a 460 w/ d3ve heads. Port o sonic intake, Demon carb, Competition engineering back half, coil overs, ladder bars, 456 gears, 8 pt. cage, fuel cell and 32x14 slicks on centerlines. I need to build a c6 and put a stahl converter in it. I also need to get a set of headers for it also. I dont see any of these at any drag strips around here so I hopefully will represent well.

I think that I am going to have to sell this car to fund my other projects. If anybody is interested in the car let me know.

The guy who was building the car put a stock c6 with a stock stahl converter. The cam in this car has a .640 lift. The power band starts at 3500rpms. I have come into some bad times and am just testing the waters on this car.

you should have no problem selling it.
I doubt it will sell here on this site but try the TorinoCobra site, Ford Muscle.com or one of the other year specific sites.
 
Sorry to hear you have to let it go but sometimes things happen for a reason.

Yeah that is what I keep telling myself. Thanks for the support guys. Even getting rid of this one still leaves me with plenty of cars. The two that I like the most and my first car is what I will have. How many people can say that they still have their first car? I always try to look at the positives.I am very lucky to have what I do, and a great wife to throw in the mix.

Ken, I love Pintos. My wife will tell ya that I have wanted one for a long time. Every time we see one she will point it out to me. It is just that things have gone south in my financial situation. I am glad that you are okay after that earthquake. Maybe we can talk tomorrow, I will look on skype to see if you are on line. See ya buddy.
