                    A cool looking car. Kind of reminds me of an Arrow. I think they are stretching the 1000 horse though.

                      i love it

                      my first foray into cars was at 14, working at an alfa romeo delearship, that also build race cars

                      racealfa-geel-jpg.jpg

                      so, to see this is like my first love and my true love coming together

                          I was thinking about that, and why this doesn't bother me at all, and I strongly dislike the LS swap (I'm sure the true reason is conformation bias)

                          But I've decided that this no different from swapping a dodge 360 into a Plymouth, seeing as how they are all fiats now

                          (I know, lame excuse but it allows me to like this, while I dislike the LS swap without sounding like a hypocrit)

                            Why is it that a LS swap just isn't right but a Mopar swap into anything is just plain cool! LOL

                              That's because Mopars are not a dime a dozen, like the LS stuff & prior to that small block chubbys.

                                I don’t care who owns Chrysler now days. But our cars were American made and built prior to 76. And Lee Iacocca was King.

                                  It must be heavy or the 1000 hore is a bit generous. upload_2020-11-23_11-23-50.png

                                  Definitely bad a$$ and sounds it. It's not like it's a Mope in Maverick. So over LS swaps. Monteverdi Hai 450. Peter Monteverdi attempted to enter the sports car business with the Hai 450, introduced at the 1970 Geneva Motor Show. The prototype was powered by a Chrysler 426 Hemi big block V8, and was expected to be the first of a production run of 50 cars. Unfortunately, none of the additional cars were ever built.

                                    JENSEN INTERCEPTOR. 440 six pack available! Don't know production numbers....English styling, American muscle. I wonder how they made the 440 leak oil? (You know.... Like all English cars leak oil....get it? ) Chrysler bought Sunbeam in 67 and had to support the Ford small block 260 and 289 for a few years......273 wouldn't fit. Too wide.
