parked in the 70s, and out of the weather ever since, this was a Bel Air, but he tossed the Chevy parts and planted a 426 max wedge with an 8 3/4 and a B&M trans. Now he's heading for warmer weather and the the new owners are in vintage racing heaven!

I bet there was hell to pay for smashing some generals favorite limo!
oh man... this is truly maxing out the paint scheme ability to be fierce! Not just the shark grin, but vampire teeth too! Wow!
Seriously, this took a second... but it's called the flying fish.... because the pilots name is Pike!
Jacksonville Florida, has not had a car wash that has ever matched the cool factor of this photo...
