Project Fat an Slow racing drag car

Rate this Entry
This car kind of came about due to a joke between me and my friend Nate. Nobody can afford any of the million 3000gt parts me and nate have laying around because of the collapsed economy. So throw them away or just build a pile of parts into a car. A 93 sl with a blown engine and junk paint came into the picture and the idea of "f*%k it, we should build a car" took precedence.

Here's a link to the page i made for it:

-Run by a 92 vr4 ecu and wiring harness.
-Random fmic from a parts car that was supposed to be converted but wasn't
