    Default BIG REDS wanna be Nick Cage Build thread.

    well on Wednesday I said goodbye to the cobra, It was a Great car and I had a ton of fun with it. However I had a gentleman approach me and made me an offer for the car I couldn't refuse. I decided it was time for some new or old in this case.I grew up around musclecars. Ive always loved classic fastback stangs. When the remake of Gone in 60 seconds came out in 2000 watching nicolas cage run from the cops in a modified 67 GT500, I was hooked. I loved everything about the car the look the colors, the sound, ...everything. I said to myself one day I will own that car. So 10 years later here I am.

    I've been watching the prices of 67/68 fastbacks for a few years now and they have doubled in price. With the possible sale of the cobra I began looking around for a good clean car. I looked at a couple but they were either complete heaps of shit or way over priced. I finally PMed a guy on another mustang forum who was from conn with a 67. I looked at it and bought it right then and there.

    The previous owner bought the car in Tennessee.He completely stripped the car, sandblasted it, and put it on a rotisserie to do the rust repair. He replaced the floors quarters and some other misc metal that had been eaten away. He installed all new suspension disc brakes, fuel lines and just about everything else under the car. He swapped in a fuel injected 5.0 out of a low mileage 94 GT. He purchased a brand new world class t5 5 speed and a 9 inch rear end.

    My goal for the car is to make it as movie correct as possible.There are a few clones out there but I have yet to see one that captures teh correct movie look. Including PIAA lighting, correct body kit, handmade PS engineering wheels,moto lita steering wheel. brushed aluminum interior some other stuff.

    For those of you that haven't seen the movie this is what the final result will look like.

    Quite a project youve got there. Not going to be cheap or easy to make it an exact replica of the movie car.

    Im gonna put a set of taller gears in the rear end and throw a set of headers on it this summer next winter I plan on throwing on a set of AFR heads, a big cam, and a better flowing intake. Not gonna be a rocketship but it should scoot pretty good.
