yes I agree, we have a guy here in my Home Town that has a Cobra with a ford 460 in it, but when it comes to Draging there is a limit for HP vs Length, where to much HP in a short car just don't work well

they can....a good friend of mine bought a kit car company and built Cobras. Most of them were shipped overseas. He found a source for old 427 side oilers and put Jag indy rear ends in them. 5-600 horses in a sub 2,000 lb. car. You'd better buckle up, they were scary fast and he was an absolute magician with paint and body work. He was getting 100k plus over in Europe for them. Scary scary fast......
A friend of mine built an ERA kit car with a 514 cu in and Jag rear end.....SCARY is the word...but more fun than just one person can stand. Before he takes someone for a ride he asks: "when was the last time you disturbed the peace?"

I presently building the Lone Star LS427 Cobra kit....LS427 is the model number...I'm installing a 5 L mustang engine. My race days are over, but my fun days aren't.

I bought my 1970 'Cuda 340 in 1985 from a gas station. I paid $400 for it. I recently bought a new grille for it. I paid $1200 just for the grille. I loved growing up in the 80's.

DANG BFB!!! Doesn't Year One make a grille???
Dilbert: yeah they are a lot of fun. I was going to buy the company together with him, but decided to get a divorce instead, so my bud did it alone and did quite well with it. There's a (Swedish I believe) company that builds offshore race boats here in town, they did the shells for him, then eventually became his distributor over in Europe.
God I love 'em. Loud, loud and more loud. Fast, fast, fast.

Year One does make a grille now. It is a little cheaper but not much.

Wow Isaiahsdad, I bet you get some serious looks when you run up to the hobby shop.. Can you give us a little history on DE car please?

This was my car from 1974 to about 82. I traded it in 82 for a 81 Ford Bronco XLT. Big Mistake!
It had a 440 Magnum but I blew that up so ended up putting a 383 Magnum bored out 30 over. Still pretty bad a$$ with the B&M torqflite trans a mild Esky cam and headers. SURE miss that car! Would love to give it to my son.
