Back in a car... A derby car that is.

Yeah yeah yeah, i know. Why am i spending foolish money? Why not? I can't take it with me when i die! Maybe sooner than later with my driving habits, but who cares? Anyway, down to business, i do apologize for not having any pics of said car. I spent a whopping $500 on a running and driving 1979 chevy caprice with a mildly cammed 350 and a recently rebuilt 350 trans. Its a turd, but thats why it was 500 bucks. Now a list of things to do before the derby

*pick up car
*fuck bitches in car
*gut car (wiring and anything unnecessary)
*cut firewall
*wire the damn thing
*free floating rad
*custom shifter
*tune
*weld Diff
*trunk tuck? (yet to be decided)
*paint epic stuff on car
*wreck it

Now, i dont know how many of you guys have built derby cars, but any imput/ideas will be greatly appreciated. I did run a pre-ran last year but i was less than impressed with my setup.

Pics for reference





Thin blue line for fallen LEO's and the obvious rebel flag for awesomeness.

I have no strategy, just build a car to take a hit, and hand out the pain!
