Description
Lot #150 - Tim strange's "special mint" , featured in july 2002 hot rodding magazine, awarded boyd's top pick 2002, sema show display car in las vegas 2002. Where do you start on a car like this, how about the heidt's mustang ii front suspension, flaming river rack and pinion steering, air ride technologies air ride, a pair of all star performance disc brakes, 12 bolt posi with 3.5 gears, air ride technologies triangulated four-link rear suspension. First car ever to receive massive 22x10 colorado custom billet wheels, 9.5:1 small-block chevy with comp valve train. The body work at first glance looks minimal, but closer inspection you will see it has been nosed and decked, duel bullet taillights, exquisite headlight bezels, and toothy grill. Grill surround filled and painted, front bumper was formed around the license plate, the wheel openings were tweaked just a bit larger to handle the massive wheels. Dash was smoothed and the top eyebrow was reconstructed to mimic the passenger side, auto meter gauges, vintage air deco control panel, ididit tilt steering column. Wow, these are just a few things that have been done. The list goes on and on. The car was built entirely by strange motion rod and custom. This mint green buick is special indeed!
