I wouldn't touch wheels and tires but I'm still old school. I chose Covan dash because they are never done! Car if pretty much perfect to me :yes: although everybody could nit pick something.

Sounds evil man!

DON'T DO THE COVANS! Just mod your own panel like this:


And get some Caltracs!

Upgrade to a rev limiting ignition!

I would upgrade to a 6AL box, so when those drag radials break loose on the street or track you don't blow the motor up. Good investment in MHO. Nice ride. I have the cutouts on my 77 and 78 with Warlock mufflers. Very fun on the street.

Like the car but I would go with some drag stars and white letter Hoosier tires. Keep the slapper bars they look cool. Covans dashes look like poo tho car wasnt maent to have round gauges they look awkward.
