That ought push the Gremlin down the track. You deciding to keep it then? Just a pointer on posting..when you posted your link you need to keep a space between the period and the HTTP or it will not recognize it. Like this. <a href="http://www.carcraft.com/eventcoverage/0302_real/index5.html" target="_blank">http://www.carcraft.com/eventcoverage/0302_real/index5.html</a> with a space in front and behind it makes the url stand alone. Just thought I'd help you out for next time. BTW I think the Caddy looks pretty sharp with the wheels.

Looks sweet, definately a nice car.
Don't forget about that 150hp shot of nitrous helping her out and it doesn't say what kind of gas he's running on (at least I didn't see it). Still a wicked Caddy though.

My 2 cents...

I know that THIS...
[img]http://groups.msn.com/_Secure/0SQDeAiEWhzeGGjLsqbbJX71OSwx3*TA3rvRcg!2UnZEwDxaXg O0D8Qy9jl1q4soysT3yERkhWPhXdLaxYYwBjhjlRgVvC7oXY2h HJbAAyJ9BwNdBTt5Eog/docsrod.JPG[/img]

goes down the road, and over the trails very well with THIS...

In case none of you recognise it, it's my '28 Ford 4WD truck. Caddy 500/TH-400/twin-stick Model 20, turning 4.11 geared/welded 10 bolt front and Dana 44 rear, and 38.5" x 11" x 15" Boggers.

Idles at 700 RPM as smooth as a kitten, but has the bite of a lion when the secondaries open up. WhuuoooooOOOOOOO!!!

And THIS...

is the '54 Kustomsledd. Also Caddy powered, with a 400 trans, and disc-braked Mustang 8" axle running 3.00 gears. Brakes up front are Camaro discs/spindles, with a Caddy Eldorado master cylinder. Onboard air ride using an engine-powered York A/C unit and 7 gallon tank help keep the rockers and rear bumper intact while motivating, and throwing sparks when cruising. Taillights are custom flamethrowing pieces hand-built. Body is angle channeled 4" at firewall/11" at rear bumper, with 5" out of door pillars, 3" canted B-pillars, roof panel pancaked another inch, and a custom '26 Ford centerdoor oval rear window. Front clip is all steel tilt unit with deeply frenched headlights, stock grille insert, and upside-down rear bumper on front.

The '28 is my daily driver, and I'm shooting to have the Kustomsledd in finish primer by Indy GoodGuys... (June).
