    Future Plans

    TIGER CAGE! It would look SICK with the top down not to mention benefits of having a 4 point harness. LS1 Rear Disc Brakes swap. 1/2" x 20 Moroso rear wheel stud upgrade LSA for an extra 100 ponies seeing how Betsy is a lil' on the hefty side. Body panel alignment all the way around. PAINT - had a hardtop 68 Camaro in high school I sprayed Guards Red while taking auto body and fender repair vocational training classes. The blue is cool but really like to shoot it RED.
