Believe me, when Lingenfelter finished with the engine...there honestly isn't much that is Chevy about it anymore.
He did it for reliability reasons too. He did NOT want a Ford power plant in the car...just because the original had one.
hehe, i dislike fords enough im very tempted to drop a chevy 350 into my ranger, instead of a 302...
all ive got to say about the replica vs. original debate... replicas cost 100000ish for a very nice one... originals cost (last time i saw a price) 250000 and up, way way up.
point isnt whether its original or a replica at that stage, its whether or not youve got one... and when you do, and when you can back the image of power up, then it aint even about how you stand beside your car..... i mean what you drive, its about how you drive it.
and if someones challenging you to a race for $50... they dont know how to handle, nor do they deserve a car of that caliber
