I'm really looking for a 4 eyed but let me see some pics just in case. I don't want to pass up the wrong car just because of the front clip. Thanks.

Last week I hit the track with a new pair of 28" hoosier slicks and ran terrible
11.50's @ 128 with a 1.85 60ft. The car would stick for 1-2 feet then the rear would unload and start spinning like crazy.
Only one track visit?????

Well after that one pass (not even a pass) I loaded it back up the trailer. To me I don't count that as a day I raced the car. I'm up in the air on selling the car I may just
do the rear coilover/minitub and bust some low 10's on motor real soon
Not bad for a street car with full exhaust and front/back leather seats. lol
