No it is a 2 wheel drive "sleeper".It has a real bad habit of making "tuner cars" and even Mustangs look real bad from light to light.
An owner who "drives it like he stole it".

Stan, the foot is doing pretty good so far.I did go ahead and have some surgery done.healed up pretty good.If every thing holds up she will be painted for the "Nationals".That's the goal......

I got the inner door section welded in......

metal fitted and tacked into place.



a boat load of tack welds until you have one solid weld.



I do this to keep from warping the thin sheet metal.

after the welding is done the welds are ground down.



First with a hard disk.Then it is ground with a soft pad.



a "skim" coat of fill er will be used to smooth the surface out nice.......
