    I'm not looking to set records here, I just want a peppy 420a and a good looking car.
    Background:
    Currently a 190psi compression engine.

    Just because it's a N/T doesn't mean it's cheap.

    Wrecked (minor): 8/26/2019
    Purchased: 1/4/2018. It was dumping oil out of the engine. I was lucky to make it home (no, I didn't have a trailer). The car was in nasty condition, its 1000% better now but I'm still working on it. I have been an influence on my friends and family with this car, they like DSM's now.
