hey guys im not gona lie to you, im only 16 and im inlove with all the fords from the 67-72 range and my father is an x drag racer and a A grade mechanic he use to own a 55 chev 2 door with a 427 chev in it. anyways to my question we have a 1971 zd fairlane siting in the shed with a 351 clevlend. it is completly standard but needs alot of work, the inside is perfect but the outside needs new paint (my uncle is a panelbeater who dose cars so a lil help there) it also needs work done to the engine and gearbox and diff, its been sitting in the shed for about 5 years but i start her up every now and then to keep her going, i had her going tonight. anyways i was just wondering do you think this car is worth putting my saved up car money into so i can have this fairlane. it would take all my car money to get her ready and i dont no if i should or not because if i get caught with a 351 on the road + a 650 cfm carb i have, i will get into trouble and i dont no wat the consaquences are. anyway i can either pik to get this baby looking good and risk getting caught or maybe i can buy like an 68 xr 289 or somthing instead. wat do u think i should do, alot of jobs we can do because my father is a mechanic with a workshop. and wat is the penalty for being caught with a 351 on ur P's? has anyone ever been caught in this site? any opinions or advice would be great. thanks guys and hopefully ill c u on the street in a couple of years, cheers

this thread is probably on the verge of going into the off-topic section and quite frankly man the choice is yours, start making your own decisions in life and if your only 16 change your age in your profile to 16 not 21

Kruptd, i think he's probably made a choice by now.
You know... seeing as he asked the question like 2 years ago.
