Here is my 450 SLC FIA Rally Car. Still in Rally trim from The Classic Adelaide Rally in Australia. The car is all "Euro Spec" (no emission equip. and never had any), high compression 4.5 liter V-8 engine with a four speed manual transmission and a 3.55 rear diff. It never had AC, or power windows and is fitted with some aluminum body panels.

Somehow that shop looks familiar.....I can still feel the tranny fluid dripping on my chest as I fall asleep under a customer's car at 4 in the morning so we had enough money to go on another Rally! NEXT needs to be a LeMons car Joe....
