    this is what he said its running

    Hi Marc, it has the original 350 ci block {5.7 litre** bored slightly over, alluminum heads, RV Roller camshaft, roller rockers, roller lifters, 9 and half to one pistons, with weiand super charger and 650cfm elderbrock 4 barrel carb, chrome headers and side pipes, She's running about 470HP at the moment, until I later put nitros on her, Hope to push up to about 800 to 1000 HP with nitros.
    Later mate

    Thats SUPER nice Mate, dont think 400bhp of nitrous would be safe
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    Yeah safe as houses on an old pig iron yank engine even with aluminium heads.

    Wow! Talk about pedestrian safety!

    Thats gonna be quite lethal when it runs at you... even at just 5mph.
    And can the headlights actually light up anything?

    Looks really cool as a collector's car though.
