Going Polar silver with Lobster interior.. Not a show car, its an Outlaw with 220HP of MassIVe power and 5 speeds!

I am going with a 2.4 Liter TIV, Nickies cylinders, LE 220 heads and a RAT "Evil Twist" Header in 1-3/4". I am up in the air about carbs as I am going to make the engine look as OG as possible to include Knecht air filters and etc. I might use a set of Solex P11 carbs that ACE will bore to 45mm for me, or just run a set of 48 dells that I have on hand. I am looking for the perfect balance of "Retro-Mod" for this car.

This car was raced for 40+ years. It seldom spent any time outdoors and has never been registered for highway use in its entire life.
More later as we build it up over the next few months.

Before...









During.. Progress as of today:

Its getting there!! After being held captive by a former friend that I have known since grade school (who finally pissed me off) I have the car back and it has been taken to have the final body work done.. I have decided on the brightest white on the planet with zero chrome.. I hate bling!

Its coming along.. Engine is done :-)









What I am shooting for:

Those definitely aren't my type.
Decided to go with the 2012 997 GT3 RS color "gray - black".
It will be a lot different. Imagine that. :-)
