    It would be very interesting to see what you ended up with under the car, and hood for sure. 800 HP would be fun once and a while, but something a little more toned down could be fun too.

    The more I look at that 55, the more interesting it gets. It is something way out of the box for sure. Not so sure about the wheels/tire though.

    Shipping brake lines is always an issue unfortunately. They could end showing up folded in half, or more. I've had to try and straighten out a few of my own bends. :???:
