    They look killer. Have you had time to drive it much since the resto? How does it feel with the Hotchkis TVR suspension?

    The suspension is awesome. I also added fender supports and shock supports to stiffen up the front end. Great sway bars and springs. Went with Ride tech shocks and they are the best shocks I have ever used. Car is flat through corners and really responds with the new A arms. I used a fast ratio steering box which makes every slight move a reaction. You have to pay attention and drive. It is really fast with 525 HP on the 440 six pak.

    Sounds like a great combination. How is the car on daily drives? Comfy? I ask all these questions because we’re constantly getting questions from customers and always like to hear first-hand accounts of how different setups work.

    Thanks!

    Goes down the road smooth. Takes bumps really well.

    I have Spintech mufflers and they are quite rowdy but really throaty so it sounds mean all the time…

    Nice. We’ve had various experiences with Spintechs… they do have a growl, but they sound good.
