    Default Traction V8

    Seems they did make them!

    Maybe not one for the purists but aside from the obvious fact its not original, the cheap looking interior and the weird rear bumper I quite like it.

    I was expecting an Oldsmobile Toronado lump in the pointy end!

    425 cubes with American front wheel drive, in a Traction = NO Traction

    You must admit, that is brilliantly done. Sadly it'll probably not handle as well as the original. After all, a tailshaft/trannie hump in a traction.... aaarrrrhhhh..... Put some period wheels on it and a proper back bumper and it would look even better.

    gee's that motor fits in there nicely ...

    By the standards of these things, that is one impressive bit of work. Quite restrained and tasteful, all in all. What a huge job.
