I don’t recognize the car, but I’d think there’s a high likelihood that mtn, nocones or I would know the owner.

They say the last 10% of a project takes 90% of your time & money.

Isn't that the truth! I would suggest taking a rethink to that choice of a radiator, unless it also functions as a splitter? I also wonder what they did to the rear suspension, as if this has not been running yet, they may not have broken the stock one, so that is another  piece to be solved. 302 should kill the differential after the 2nd burnout.

Truer words have never been spoken.  But that thing isn't even to the 90% mark.

Can confirm.  Last year I paid $2,000 for the stalled Monster Miata.  Then last summer I paid $2,000 for the stalled motor replacement NC.

Seems $2,000 is the going rate for “cool parts and good potential but i’m Over my head and have given up”.

Don't I know that!

That said, if your dream build happens to be a 302 powered spitfire, subject to inspection,  that looks like a reasonable start for $2000.

I use an iPod on shuffle for my garage tunes and it works well, but having a Seeburg jukebox is WAY cooler.

Corvette radiator is also sloped like that. But I don't think the tiny diff.in the back will like all that power.

Just duct tape an egg onto the gas pedal, and that rear end will last a longer time.

I'd hard-boil my egg first.  More fun that way.
