Anyway, Bill, have you never even lurked about attempting to move the powertrain to the rear in order to keep it RWD?
I do apologize if i came across as an a$$. But i hate seeing things like this. It's just my personal opinion, as I am a huge classic car guy. I didn't mean to sound like a total douche. I am in fact restoring a classic car, so all the people saying "don't comment unless you're saving a car blah blah" Well, I am. so.... yeah. a 1972 gran torino. Definitely not going hybrid. It's going big block gas guzzling power.

again, sorry if i came across as a dick. Just don't like seeing things like this, just the way I am. I can totally respect the work being put into this, as it's a huge project. I just wish it was something other than a classic firebird.
