How well are the roads mantained there. The pot holes here would destroy the sweet ride

Im more partial to RAT RODS, but the high end ones look wicked. I just hate to wash, clean and polish anything, so rat rod is my style.

In a heart beat if I can fit comfortably in the coupe. I love the IROC but it's never been on my list of "must own if I ever win the lotto" cars.
67 Stingray 327 / 4 speed (friend owns one)
AC Shelby Cobra (although after seeing one in person (kit car) and talking to a friend who drove it..not so much anymore)
34 Ford 5 window coupe.

I'll never own the Vette, the Cobra doesn't have the appeal it did, but a 30's Ford 3 or 5 window coupe..oh hell yes!
The Factory Five is my best option both in a dollar sense and drive ability. It sucks they aren't set up for a small block chevy but...such is life!

Come on now...you originally said 5 window, and now you're down grading to a 3 window
The '33-'34 coupe is my all time favorite street rod, LONG before ZZ Top made it the hit it is today. They were actually very high dollar cars (original shells) long before ZZ Top made them popular. I was about to buy one to street rod, then ZZ Top introduced their car, and then it was just out of reach.
But honestly, I do not care for the sectioned body on the Factory 5 kit. I prefer the original body lines with a chopped top.

I saw something similar with a small Ford engine like the Cobra's. It sounded awesome. Nothing beats the old Fords for sound. So I wouldn't sweat the Ford/Chevy thing. And if your just keeping the hood closed, there's nothing wrong with a plain jane 5.0L.

A guy down the street from me has a Flat Black one with open sides around the engine. Hes uses a old fashioned pan head. But it's real quite. Not sure if those old engines actually make any power.
