History
My first car,bought with money borrowed from my parents at age 18.Turned out to be a hard road to travel,but the end result is worth it.
Done up as a tribute to the Eastgate Ford B/FXand S/S cars of the 60's with a 350hp 302,Toploader,and 3.70 Detroit locker.
Next year's combo includes a 560hp 347 and 4.56 gears.
