Nice pic. Where can I see specs on the build?

The first car I ever remember riding in was one of these (I think, i can't tell if it was this or an Austin Healey.) Dad had it for ten years, including the first six years of my life. Same color too, only his was a slushbox. I keep looking for one, in the hopes of someday owning it.

it may not yet be dead. in the works is an explorer 302, GT40 heads and intake, forged dished pistons, a HX40, 8 psi and mid 11's. the team has added a TKO, an aluminum DS, a spooled 8.8, studs, battle boxes, sub frame connectors, and some fiberglass 1/4's and doors. my good friend john supplied a full CHE rear suspension, the energy suspension full car kit, and some nice brake parts to lose some weight over the ABS stuff. i still havent built anything, but she may again see track whore duty!
