The story:

I bought the car from my longtime mechanic, who had built it up for his son. Son liked imports better than domestics, and never drove it. The car was supercharged, running about 15psi of boost through stock tuneport and heads and about 370hp to the wheels. I owned it for three months and had just put meth injection on the car when the supercharger took a dump and sent all of its internals into my oil pan, taking the engine with it. Shortly after that, I got a divorce. Things were very rough financially, but I did my best to keep the car and not have to sell it.

Exactly two years after I bought it, the new build was finished and she was back on the road. She definitely gets plenty of attention :)
