Absolutely amazing car! I hope mine will look like that in 4 years, I'm scrolling on my phone but do you have any pictures of the underside of the hood showing the shaker?

Here ya go!  I can’t post the pics on my phone, but this link will let you see it.

That is a great stance on your car! On those rims what backspacing were the 17x9’s? I’m thinking about getting a set.
Thanks,

thanks!!! I don’t recall, they are year one wheels and only come in one backspacing for the 17x9’s so maybe contact them and see what they use.

Thanks for the info, I just realized that they only have one size back spacing. They look great on your car and I am going to get a set for my 71.
Thx,

Yes, just one 1/8th mile pass last month.  And it was at a track I’ve never been to before so not sure as to the timing accuracy.  It was 95 degrees out and every car there was putting down terrible times.  My car ran an 8.3 @ (I think) 89 mph.  I was rather disappointed because my butt dyno says the car is running much better with the new rear end. And it ran an 8.4 last fall on a warm day with the old axle (open diff and 2.73’s)
