Thanks! I wanted a v8 car. Wanted one in this chassis and this was just the right way to do it I felt.

I just figured more people would be interested here. The starquest page has really died.

You're absolutely right, there's a reason I hardly visit there.

I always thought these cars looked great. V8 power should make for a cool ride!

Haha. Thanks man. I'm just honest and try to stay humble. This is a whole lot of firsts for me. I've never built a trans tunnel. Never built headers. Never built a steering system haha. It's all learning for me. I can certainly stick some metal together. But I wouldn't consider myself a "welder". But I can weld! Still so much work to get done, and it's cold as balls here which doesn't help much! It is getting there though!

Awesome job man. I have a habit of diving right into projects as well. I have a 2J powered Volvo right now. I think a Toyota previa is in my future. It's great that you are building what your buddy started. Keep up the good work
