I didn't think I would ever see that car again. Too bad they couldn't post a photo looking
straight at the front of the car.
Whomever listed it just became an ebay user two days ago.

He was not proud or anything of the wart. He did it to cover the SC and that was just the function of it. I think I would have put a larger "add on" cowel on it or made one as well. I think a good set of heads would really wake that car up. It had the NPI NG (service truck natural gas) heads in it which had super small valves. The last I remember he said it ran a 13.2XX but was a super car for him on the street. He was actually thinking abuot selling it before he died and purchasing a Caddy to play with in the same fashion.

I remember when Leland put that car together. The hood may not be the nicest thing in the world, but that car sure was unique and he put alot of work into it.

1990 35th Anny. Supercoupe (under construction). 1991 Supercoupe (tastefully modded). 1989 5-speed Supercoupe (modded). 2003 Yamaha YZF600R (rocket)
1989 Taurus SHO (very lightly modded, but broken again)
1967 Ford F100 2WD (460 bored .060 over, too much cam and gearing for the street).

That hood is quite interesting. Should be in a museum.

I love my V8, but I'd love it more if all 8 cylinders worked. (they do now)

I may be preaching to the choir on this one, but that is one UGLY hood. It made me say to myself, SWEET CAROLINE . . . NO NO NO! It is a very nice car all around though IMO.

Why go to the bother of painting it and then adding that horrible spoiler in black.
