Pretty cool car! I'd imagine you could make it quite peppy.

Pretty nice, looks like fun.

On a side note - does anyone seriously use 56k anymore? And if so, do they ever complain? Just curious.

double edit - that wasn't you, sorry.
Despite that, I like the car. I've always wanted one of the factory turbo f-bodies.

edit - don't go T-5. You can get a good condition t-56 for well under $1k man. I don't know if there would be more work involved, but it seems like it'd be worth it to just get the t-56.

Also, whatever you do, keep the exhaust exits like that, I always thought those were cool for some reason haha.
