    No Chassis reinforcement, crappy tires, no brake upgrades, bench seats, lap only seatbelts…. You literally need to be a moron to drive this thing.

    This car was built for SEMA and is a showpiece. Reminds me of Jay Leno’s 56 Buick with a 572 big block but otherwise stock looking exterior. Overkill for sure, but it’s a show car. I’m sure they have a set of performance radials for driving it on the street.

    Nice,Nice,Nice! I remember driving my Dad’s 59 Chrysler 300 E with a 413 police intercepter motor with two 4 barrels and type writer drive at 15 years old. I saw the inside of a lot of bars. Thanks for bringing back a lot of memories. Sincerely,The Old Man.
