    Welcome, very nice A-body. I almost chose the same Konig wheels for my Cougar.

    Fast Ed,

    I'm real happy with the Konig wheels. They had the right offset. The wheel you did go with look great, but I especially like your hood ornament...

    I had a '92 T-Bird SC and loved it - very stable high-speed car...

    twosaturns,

    Thanks... No, just a Performer RPM with a 750.

    I'm actually just in stage 1 on the engine. The thing is already a beast. I have the frames tied together, but with much more h/p, (turbo dream...) I'm concerned with twisting it in half (not to mention safety), so I'm thinking about a 6 point roll bar.

    I don't want to screw up the looks, so I'm thinking about a custom bar, something like what they did on the Project Prodigy Camaro.
    http://www.prodigycustoms.com/mikes-prodigy.asp
    That's the best roll bar treatment I've seen...

    I know a lot of people hate roll bars in verts, but if I was worried about what other people think, I would have done a lot of things different.

    Thanks guys,
    John

    I'm cool w/ bars in ragtops, you have to do something to keep it straight.
    I've just got a thing for 440+6, 'course a RPM on there is STILL cool. nice job!

    Killer boots man. 440 in a Dart? Sounds like a good time.
