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

hmm i guess as this is a new law they may be cracking down on it a fair bit, i guess its risky sounds like a sweet project tho. I guess its really up to you if u really really want the car id say just go for it, or maybe u could even sapre 500 buy a 4cyl bomb to get round in while u doin her up

looking back on the way I did it and the way I'd tell others to so it then i'd say get a bomb and drive that while you do up the 351, for sure!
