Gene is straight up OG with B-bodies and there isn't a B-body owners house in this land that he isn't welcome in.

It's an honor to have you with us here today, Godfather.

Met Gene in person at our little Jax INC shindig last year. Great guy.

Gene - everyone needs a wagon. It's just a fact.

That engine compartment is a work of art especially the home plate.Somebody did a incredible job routing all of the tubing for the twin turbos,must have been an engineer with OCD in a previous life.
The whole package looks like something the factory would have built.

Hello Lorne whats new,didnt think anything could top that engine but the interior definitely comes very close.Whoever did the stitching and leather forming is a old school genius,love that 4 seat configuration along with that bitchin console and colors.

Thanks for all the warm welcomes.

Nope. Not my car. The owner, an upholsterer from Arizona, did an ultra fine job adapting that 2013 interior into the car. Basically a stock LT1 with a couple small turbos strapped on it. A beautiful job of making it look as OEM as possible. My layout is a little more "in yo face" than that with a bunch of piping up top. LOL

Been struggling to get to the end of the mechanical renewal of Black Sunshine. The latest has been dealing with several bad lifters from Comp Cams. Hope to have them replaced and the engine put back in in time for SSHS13.

Black Sunshine after 6 years of sitting in the pole barn with some burned pistons.



After fresh paint and an engine rebuild.

I hate to break the news to you buddy, but the exhaust outlets for the  GE F410 jet fighter twin turbos are usually mounted OUTSIDE the body. That way, when you hit the afterburners it doesn't fry the luggage or groceries.

Although having the trunk up is likely equivalent to having flaps extended for landings, I'd suggest a larger tail fin to stabilize it during maneuvers,, and some radar absorbing stealth paint all over.




This photo might help you get some of those details squared away so the steaks won't get barbequed  before you get home

In that case, good to know it won't be your car that goes up in flames.
