Hey, it works!
My first car, bought it at 15 in '85 worked on it for over a year then hit the street in summer of '86 as my daily driver through High School and College. Joined a Car Club and did Shows, Cruise Nights and Drag Races. Started racing more and more, made more money and started going faster till it morphed into a dedicated Drag Car in the mid- 90's. And its that way now....
