    I had to use a chopped down metal cpu case to fit it in the qtr... it was as compact as could be...even the isa risser cards were just fit around with the case.... I have it in my basement & I'll dig it out to show it.... I had to use a multiple serial board & it had a connector that branched out into a bunch of serial cables....looked like an octupus... configuring them was not anything close to "PLUG & PLAY"... man I love USB

    the best recorded time was only a 12.80 or so... but after this car had a fully done 4.3 with around 700 horse.... the engine blew before she ever made it to the track for official times... but was calculated conservatively at a high 10 seconds, if not a LOW 11

    that motor was fresh though... most of my use with this car was at around 450 hp.... she ran high 12's-low 13's all day long...... I used to drive her to the track... system bumpin'.... pull the slicks & jack outa the trunk..... go to race mode...... beat some of the trailered cars..... then drive out with the a/c pumping.... she was a lot of fun...

    there were 4 12"s back there dual isobaric....... & a bunch of old school rockford's.... I still have most of the equiptment... at least the rockford amps... the sub's are long gone....

    I had a character LCD in the overhead console... it lit up green vacum floresent & matched the 91 dash instramentation perfectly....

    the car is an 83 coupe with a 91 body conversion all the way, meaning everything from the frame up was 91.... the complete dashboard with the 91 climate control... there is A LOT more here than is imediately obvious....

    this car was a real shocker in person back then.... it's not the first custom I done, but was one of the more radical ones.... she remains my favorite.... the only car I know I will never sell.... My username is even this car.... now I just did a barter deal with a mechanic friend of mine who needs his car painted... he provides a new grand national drivetrain & I restore one of his 87 grand national's....

    well....the engine is in....IT LIVES AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    now to finish her off right this time........ I've learned a lot since I built her & she'll really benifit from that this time around...... I want to make it a show car at this point.... I'll drive her around on the streets like I did back then too....

    This car was my DAILY DRIVER back then..... I went everywhere with her..... I shot up & down the jersey shore.... make it to racenight at englishtown wendsdays & fridays....... this car was fast... I mean REALLY fast on the street....... I used to be a sicker driver back then....,this car has MANY storys attached to it.... it's not the only fast car I ever had, but I drove her for the better part of 5 years....

    if you look at the first picture in this thread you can see where the 5" picturetube was above the pc 10".... I useda 5" color tv....took it apart & installed the guts in the dash... the picture tube was really cool & brite.... I had a tinted glass over it so when off it disapeared.... there was a panel that was on two slider tracks(along side monitor) that slid up & covered the pc screen completely....... it had the climate control face & the sony eq face on it, both of these units were deep in original form but I had to extend remote the two displays.... then the panel slid down to reveal the monitor..... most people would just say "oh ****" when seeing this car for the first time... at least twice... one when the panel came down to reveal the pc monitor & then again when I pressed the remote & the nose tilted open revealing a sick looking engine.... back then everything was polished & finished off nice..... she sat on a sweet set of 17" centerline billets that looked surprisingly appropriate on this cadillac she had the stance of a impala ss with the same sized 255/50 17's....
