    Considering the effort is in making the molds, you should put some of these parts up for sale.
    As you probably rarely run against another 72 Ranchero or Torino you wouldn't be giving away your advantage.

    I tried to toss the rear view mirror and hung it back up. I needed it. I'm too fat to turn around to see.

    Hmmmmm, Maybe a bathroom scale in front of the refrigerator will shave some weight in the Ranchero.....

    Lol the fridge fat joke aint nice, also hoping to be at those time sometime in the future. At 11.5 have .4 tenths of a second to go, who knows it may be possible. Also nitrous may be in the future someday, nothing crazy probably just 80 to 100 shot at most. Also weight is in my favor being 140 at my heaviest. Also headlights look good, don't shoot me down but I have been thinking about getting the capsule light housings and running a hid kit in the low beams. May do it after seeing your car, think it's time to get rid of those outdated glass halogen lights.
