Maybe I just need a louder muffler, or none. That always makes them feel faster :)
That and the floor pans being 3" off the ground. I picked up my kids from school yesterday in the 510 (usually a 97 Ford Powerstroke) they thought I was doing 70 when I was doing 40.

Awww the illusion of speed. I've learned at the autox that when guys ask for a ride I gotta make sure and slide extra! Otherwise they don't understand how I'm killing it out there. It feels slow if I don't slide it a bit. :)

Heretic.

Your build was one of my favorite to follow. Your vision for your 510 shared similarities with the vision I have for mine and I placed great value in seeing how your build progressed. Take comfort in knowing your 510, regardless of the selling price on BAT, was a great one. Perhaps another 510 is in the cards for you at some point in time. I would ask, if you have the time, to update your project build one last time with last thoughts, suggestions, outcomes, product reviews, advice...for posterity sake.

Thanks.
