Default long time coming

We started this 14 years ago. It's a real 1969 GTO that was burned up. I decided to build a tube frame car out of what was left. Here is the result, finally got it running last year. Broke 3 Jesel rocker arms and had a problem with the BOP front drive making metal. So back to the engine shop, Jesel redesigned the intake rockers, BOP had improved on it's design since I had bought it so I upgraded. Now it seems to be a happier engine.
It's just your run of the mill 500" Tiger headed, alcohol fuel injected, 5-speed Goat. Here's some pics.

I'd like to thank Jeff Burian for the engine work, Randy Baumiller of R&D Chassis for the frame, and my wife and boys for all the help. My 18 year old drove the car on this pass.
