I ended up finding it not too much after I posted!

Any plans to bring the car to Rennsport or any other events at Laguna Seca this year? I'd love to check it out in person!

Wicked cool. Thanks for sharing such detailed images. Sorry to hear about the accident, but looks like it's back better than ever. Maybe you can bring it down to one of our C&C's sometime.

just curious as to Why you didnt you run a renegade hybrid water set up. That way you wouldn't have to have cut up the chassis?

That has got to be one of the cleanest V8 conversions I have seen in a while. Love the aesthetic details.
Also in the Bay area, would love to see this beast up close.
Please let us know when you show it locally.
