I'm figuring around 3750 with me in it. I'm not looking to put this
car on a diet other that chucking the dead weight. Gotta keep the
flat-hood sleeper look. There's a guy that runs at F-Bird with a
'70-ish Chevelle that's silver with the black SS trim layout. It runs
low 12's wheels-up and looks showroom stock. The bleating onlookers
think it's nifty. It needs to be fanged by a Ford.

No, I guess I missed that one. What parts?

I thought the track's website mandated a roll bar at 11.99, but I
just checked it and they say to ask tech about requirements on cars
faster than 12.00. Not quite the same thing, I guess. If 11.49 is the
cutoff, then I'll just put in sub connectors for the time being.
