Wife buys car-PISSED!

Post by ws6air » Wed Jun 16, 2010 11:35 pm

Don't know if you guys remember DEE from Vegas, we were two of them yelling to the crowds in line for autographs, and also the moderators on the Zone.... Here's a story of the last two days.....

Here's my wife's new ride.... She was looking at the classifieds and she found a ride that she has been wanting since she was 16(me too) well here it is....

Funny stuff this is right? Well it gets funnier...more pics first......

Not bad huh? Well , she tells me before I see it that she wants to make this into a racer like her other ride. She's a racer , No wonder I can't ever keep up!!!

It looks to be in fantastic condition for its age, and the notchback is something unique I've not seen before. Gotta make for a heck of a blind spot though when you're driving. Not sure I'd make such a nice car like this into a full-on racer though. Maybe I'd drop in a nice engine with some extra horses but I certainly hope she isn't going to go and have all that racing paraphernalia installed in it like the fat tires and roll cage and such. To me, that kinda thing is suited to cars that have needed a load of donor parts and that in turn won't be worth as much down the road. BUT judging from the nice red TA you also posted, I don't think she goes that far with the whole racing thing.

Yey , she's not about cages and stuff, just a little faster than stock....just a little (hah) NO, but them are 335's on the back of it,(steamrollers) and yes, that's the original paint. For some reason, somebody babied it very, very well, and it still looks terrific. She dyno'd at 334 at rear wheels and 355 tq.... Not bad for ALMOST stock car, but it is enough to mess the alignment up and in so much need of bracing up now....Fenders and hood, hardly line up, same with fender to door.... The HP and TQ have done some damage though.

I've never seen that hatch type either. I've seen the regular ones that sold I think in 88, but never one like this. Kind of cool looking to me. I kind of dig it. Anyway , I'll post more pics when getting up an revving good. Thanks again guys
