werd a buddy of mine bought a Vortech '88 GT in St. Louis, guy said it wasn't running right so he gave it to him for really cheap. Very clean car. Ended up just slipping a wire back on a ground for the computer, runs good now.

So, how does it run?
DasHengst 17.12.2011, 16:47
it ran good, just slow, so im in the market for a roller motor

714 + 25 = 729 = fail
756 + 7 = 761 = fail
761 + 0 = 756 = fail

Nope. Tan notches with vinyl tops, blue jambs, and maroon exteriors are rare. Factor in camel toe interior and manual windows, tint, and stock 4cyl wheels, it's a sleeper indeed!

Only way it could have been more pathetic, is if it'd had a sunroof.

I did throw a gallon of buff colored urethane primer at it though.

It's come a long ways since then. I need to start a thread in the members builds.

The badass airbrushing is what made it go fast.
foxtrot 10.01.2012, 00:43
It was "pre-airbrush" and in this particular thread, fast is relative......LMAO

It's comin out soon though, it's gonna be a different animal fo sho.
