About my Matador

I never seem to find any one building one of these, so it looks like i will have a one of a kind hot rod. It has some pretty cool lines after you get rid of the hidious bumpers and plaid interior. Scince it was used in Nascar back in the day it had to be worth a shot. The stock 360 had been EPA detuned to 185hp for emission reasons but with the help of compcams, edlebrock and heddman and somebody named Abby Normal she has been brought back to life with a whopping 430hp and 415ftlb of torque. I am now in the processof paint and body and interior, so far I've done all the work myself with a little help from my friends.

Rare car indeed. Nice futuristic lines, definitely will turn a lot of heads when you're finished. Be sure to post some pics of the final product.
