About my car

I bought this car from a guy who had it parked since 1990. 2500 bucks in a lot of hours later removing rats nest and dirt and about 50 waxes she started to come around. The guy abandon her because she was a 229 V6 he got tired saying it's a V6 when people ask him what's under the hood. So after very long DayZ Google I found plenty of parts from circle track to torque increasing upgrades. Enough to get a good combination. My goal at first was to cram a 454 in her and beat her to death. When she arrived i learned she was a one owner with 37k miles that i couldnt tear apart so goal changed. New goal slightly modified 229 with 250-300hp/300tq. So the quest began and with some parts and love i was able to achieve it. So the secret ingredients.
