hmmm, new project idea -buick regal - 455 w/ turbo t-type clone ?

so a few weeks ago i was watching the string of car-rebuilding shows (cept pimp my ride - blah) and the one w/ the 2 twins where 2 teams build identical cars and then drag race them for pink slips

well the episode i cought this time they hade a pair of GN's / T-types on and i had a flash back to seeing an entire car transporter FULL of black GN's and t-types when i was just a wee boy

so now i have my next project in mind, and im surprised that i havent been able to find anyone whos done this yet. this idea was further bolstered at one of the local cruise nights this week ... full drag regal in bright yellow ... i was one of the few that showed any interest in it, to many people thought it was a monte carlo, lol

the plan:

nicely optioned pre 87 Regal in good shape
swap in a buick 455
add turbocharger
fab teh intake setup to look similar to the ttype
keep teh engine compartment looking factory fresh
badge it as a t-type
update the interior real nice
4 link and full drag roll cage
drag chute
Minitub it
one off set of 18" wheels in this style :

when done ... proceed to rape all the imports like vikings in a convent

what do u guys think ? hot idea ?
