Some re-thinking in that department might be on the cards...............as you can see by the stuff in the background, Steve knows whet he's about..[probably not that welcome amongst some 'shite contributors though.]

A bit lacking in creature comforts, as you can see................soundproofing, different seats, and a heater on the cards............I think a radio might possibly be a waste of time...........

Judging by the things in the background, I imagine that's very good at covering a 1/4 mile very quickly.

Looks like a proper laugh, anyway!

Very nice. I'm sure it's rather perky.

Quite a lot different at the front end from standard, is all the suspension etc custom? Looks like they've cut away inner wings, wheel wells etc and welded in a partial space frame?

It's an auto and it's got a big engine. Surely it can justifiably be a wafter as well!

Yup........front space frame tied into roll cage.......front end is rack and pinion, coil over suspension. Back end is Volvo four link. Front wings are fibreglass, the whole front end can be removed in 10 minutes.

No need for a radio. Sometimes I switch the radio off in the mercury to appreciate the burble of the V8 :D

It's been done properly...........the only really safe [!] way to do this kind of conversion is to space frame the front end............and preferably tie that into a roll cage. Engine [400 cu in Pontiac] is also tucked back as far as practically possible, in this case, pretty much being the front steering /suspension. My old Consul [see above]had pretty much the same set up, but that was 160 bhp.......this is around 300.

Bit of a departure from the CX , at least you now have the full matt/satin black set.
