I've added some links to the project sites with piles of info on the build process. This incredible undertaking and equally incredible results is definitely worth a look.

In a past issue of Hot Rod mag I saw a car that blew me away. This project was designed by Murray Pfaff and Pfaff Designs. They started with a boat of a car, the 1959 Chrysler Imperial Crown Custom and after a mind blowing amount of chopping and fitting reduced it into a little two seat speedster. They also fitted it with a modern 6.1 Hemi and the dash cluster out of a 1960 Imperial. I jumped online to find out more info and photos of the car and project so here they are.

Ordered a tower strut from a company called Agent 47. Weird name but the product looks pretty good and best of all it clears the factory plenum cover. Install went super fast and super easy however I over torqued one bolt and twisted it off. Not sure if it's really a big deal or not. I just paid for an alignment so I'd have to tear it all apart to fix that bolt and then have to get it aligned again. I took it out for a spin anyway and it may have been my imagination but it did feel much tighter in the turns.
