1987 Mustang Notch, 88 hp, W/Stock
2282 with driver!
The problem would be that the car weighs in, according to the guide, at 2600 lbs.
It would be fun trying to see how close you could get it, and still get through tech ;-)
Even @ 200# heavy, still a good car.

Oh I won't, Rick
We'll see how many are interested in what's essentially a Citation drive unit in the rear of a sports car, ..with a Chevette front suspension.

Mark I have thought the 87-89 fox body could be done cheap for a bottom feeder

It is a great car. It was originally built by Richard James in D2 as a 67 6 cylinder combo.

I didn't know that! I remember when Mr. James was racing it!

(hey Bender, you won't believe this but I stumbled across a "RUST FREE" 71 Vega GT in a container yesterday!!! I'm trying to convince the owner that he doesn't want to put a smallblock in it and streetrod it. I think that qualifies as a flyweight!)
