so i am building my wife a drag car. she is always at my races enjoys watching and loves hanging out with the other racers and their wives. well i think it is about time for her to feel what i do and why i love spending every waking minute doing something car related. so here is the official MC-NASTY
build thred. the first goal is to build the car to go 11.5 on $2000 or less directly out of my pocket. i may trade out work or do some side work for some cash that will not be counted.

i got the car from 93mustank (thankyou) for a set of headers which i paid 25.00 for. so i am off to a good start. he was going to build it for his brother but his brother is too lazy to do anything with it so he pretty much gave it to a good home. the car was named by keith and his brother and as you can see it is painted on the car and it will remain named mc-nasty which me and the wife like the name.

the car is an 85 lx coupe (notch) and is pretty much the lightst platform when it comes to mustangs. so its perfect to go fast on a budget.

here is what i have so far

car-$25.00
engine-free (building it now)
headers mac 1 3/4 LT-free(pretty much got paid to take them)
GT40P heads-free (may do some work or repayment down the road)
racing seats with covers-$40.00
battery relocate wires-free (came with seats)
solid motor mounts-free (came with seats)
tranny x member-free(came with all that ****)

will have tranny soon trans break c4 (will end up costing roughly 500.00)

so as of now i have 65.00 in the car its gonna be a tight build but i think i can do it.

machene work is coverd so no labor charges for the most parts.

here are the pics of this beauty:cool:

I have one of those too. Mines like you said, looks rough but straight body.

Do you think you'll be able to keep it under 2 grand? I have a 429 that's going in mine.
