Haha awesome! Yeah do post! Always found the steam punk, street fighter or mad max sort stuff interesting
Not my style for an AW, maybe and anglier with twin blowers on a 351 and rusted to hell looking shell, but nice to see some one doing something different

Found this while looking for an old photo of a guy that cut the steel out from under the bumper to reveal the arms and muffler on his AW and ended up with some rat rod AW's haha

Really basic really but it's completely achievable, if I had the funds my 2 would be that colour, and I'd have white rims (different style probably)

Hah! A rear spoiler thing that would actually reduce drag and produce a bit of down force. Just like a Nascar. One day I'm gonna fit one like that but made outta perspex so I can see through it.
