    Its my first real car, nothing great, but definately nice. Its got a Buick 455, forged crank and pistons, 10.5:1 Comp, small cam, bigger fuel pump out of a Ford truck, yeah I know sounds weird, but it works, TA shorty headers with matching 2.5" true duals through flowmaster mufflers, Edelbrock B4B intake, 750 carb., TH400 with a 2800 stall. I'm in need of a rear-end, right now it has a stock rear-end with the open 2.73, parts for these rear-ends aren't exactly easy to find, I'm still trying to decide whether to put a Ford 9'' or look for an original Buick 9 3/8 rear with a 3.42 posi. Either way its not going to be cheap. When I get a rear-end I will probably spray a 150 shot at it. My goal with the car is to hit 13.5, had it dynoed at over 400 HP with stock exhaust manifolds and 2 1/4" exhaust and intake/carb, so I think it should hit 13.5 with some minor adjustments.
