Nice build mate. Is your car street legal as it is in the photos, or if you were to be pulled over it'd be taken off the road?

Got any specs on the motor? Is it a crate engine or have you built it yourself?

Also, have you got any pics of the Mustang and this ride side by side?

Im working towards getting it inspected now.it wont be a daily driver,just a fun weekend car.

The engine is a 306 c.i,i built it myself in my small garage.

no pics yet of them side by side but, I think that i have 1 of them end to end in my old driveway.

lol you have to renew plates. we pay one fee for new ones and thats it. we pay registration every 12 months though. personalised plates in Victoria cost $395 AUS for custom and $495 AUS for custom mix

What's the best time out of your Mustang? What's it running? And what do you expect out of the Fairmont?

only an 8.50 in the 8th mile.the car is setup for roadrace,not drag race.

I hope that the fairmont runs atleast 7's or high 6's on nitrous.
