    I was just thinking the same thing, the stance is perfect. I may put some TC springs in my rear.

    Were they used or new ones?

    Also... why is "Cougarman".......... driving a "Thunderbird" ???

    I love this thread. But most cars are half torn apart! LOL!!!!

    Westie, I would love to know more details about your build. The car looks great!
    Damnic, just get the final wiring done and fire that thing up! You have such patience danielson.
    Dan B., Your tbird platform looks really good for the engine swap. Many hands make light work...
    flylear, You are my inspiration to keep going on my build.
    347Thunder, I'm in awe of your bodywork skills and how good your purpose-built car is turning out.

    What a great forum!

    Cougarman, your car is really coming together. I love the new stance and the wheels. Keep up the great work.
    gumby, I'm thoroughly impressed with your car's catlike reflexes and your driving prowess.
