    YEP drove it a lot drove it to work and back , about 50,round trip , 0 to 100 in 7 seconds in second gear . 4:10 gear with 32 inch tall tires , turning about 3000 at 68 mph . In third gear at 35 mph and floor it would break the rear tires loose and it would go sideways . It did not like hot weather anything over 85 and it would puke out the over flow . Had a lot of fun with it .

      A friend of mine wanted to build a colt . We found a 1974 model , put a fatman front end under it and used a Chris Alston rear clip . He used a small block . car was ruff when he got it but turned out real nice . colt44 001.jpg colt45 001.jpg colt48 001.jpg colt46 001.jpg colt47 001.jpg colt49 001.jpg colt44 001.jpg

          Hi glassman,

          Hope all is well.

          What can you make for a 71 dodge colt?

          Thanks,

          Blake
