I thought very long and hard about this, but the time has come and I wanted to see if my baby could find a loving home to another MN12 person. I've had this car since I was 15 and yes, it's hard to imagine, but it's been 20 years this year. I have a very long list modifications and it's an absolute blast to drive. Some of you may have seen it when I had it up at the meet with the group a few years back. I recently moved last year and just don't have the time to keep up with it and I would rather the car get enjoyed and "finished" (Are they ever finished?)...

I have a Steigmeheir ported Eaton SC, pulleys, custom brackets, innovators west damper, metco lower pulley assembly and other parts that I'll throw in with it. Just finished the new custom fuel cell and assembly in trunk complete with in tank A100 and Holley performance mat pre-filter. The fuel system can handle up to 1500 HP as it is and it has integrated water tank with a Rule pump already installed (no plumbing for the water lines).

I've had plans the last 5 years to get the car supercharged and began pulling together parts, etc. I've got all the supercharger parts to put on the car minus the water lines to run from the tank to heat exchanger. It will need a custom intercooler or one that you can fit into the front bumper and then you're good to go. With a supercharger this car will have ~700 HP at the wheels which would be a monster. I just don't see myself getting it all done with my setup that I have with home and work. I have new lower front control arms that aren't installed as well. There's some old videos on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj8i-fXoIZ4O-7RY5o2-8xg

When it was dyno tested at JPC with Jon Lund a few years ago there was a crossed wire and it still made good HP. It's about 500 hp on motor as it sits with the tune. Runs and drives fun, just needs some TLC to make it roadworthy (bleed the brakes, new front tires). The rear MT drag radials have plenty of tread left on them.

I also installed a 4K stall CircleD billet converter a few years ago and it's awesome. It's a lockup as well. The 4R70W has a ton of money on it with the Lentech full manual VB. So many upgrades and things it would make it too long. Feel free to call me with any questions. The motor alone has over $15K in it, trans $4K, rear $3K, and fuel system is about $5K.

The car will run 11s with little work or just a few pounds off as it is. With the Eaton included it'll be a 10second car for certain. Since the new motor was built it probably has less than 5K miles on it over the past 8 years. Life has taken over and it's just not a priority right now and I'd rather her go to a new home. 240-299-7434 The attached Word doc has a more extensive listing of the mods.

Let me know of any offers. Thanks, Chris

Tell me about the wing please.

Beautiful car, if I had the money, I'd be all over it.

This looks like a really great car that you put a lot of thought and effort into. I have been looking through old posts and the pictures of your fuel cell are no longer there. If you have them handy, would you mind reposting them?

Good luck with the sale.

Thanks for the comments guys. Here's a few pics of the fuel cell that was finished last fall and I just got it installed and wired up before I moved so I could transport the car more easily. This tank is ridiculous really.. The fabricator and I spent a ton of hours to engineer it just right. There's no lines in the tank to replace or worry about since there's issues with AN lines submerged and also poly lines with longevity. It's all AN fittings from the Holley pre filter mat (https://holley.com/products/fuel_systems/hydramat/hydramats/parts/16-107) directly to the pump and then fittings to the bung through the tank. I thought through the water tank sweating and having water drip on a track or the road.. so, the solution was a double walled tank, but it still looks like a single wall. All the water tank fittings are through the double pieces of aluminum and welded and there's also a bleeder plug should it ever sweat enough to puddle in between. That way you don't have to worry about water at the track or condensate outside of the tank if you put ice in it. : ) Let me know if you have any other questions about the motor or anything else. I can grab a pic of it in the car tomorrow and post up if needed.

That tank- wow.

Did you repaint the underside of the car, or is that just low miles and garage kept?

I noticed that too. That undercarriage is super clean.

Kool hot rod with nice deep green color. I did not see a price. Does it have a roll cage and is it street legal?

Yes, it's street legal and I did touch up the underside of the car years back. It's always in the garage though.: which helps a lot. No cage in the car.

Here's a pic of it how it is in the car currently. I also used wire connections that go through the tank so it's a good connection internal to external of the tank for fuel and water pump.

Added Pics: Motor, Oil cooler in front bumper on driver's side and trans cooler mounted in front, both with custom made brackets.

She's still around. In case you're wondering, looking to get 17,500 for car as is and 18,500 with all the supercharger stuff (Eaton m112 ported, plenum which is ported, lower manifold, intercooler, Innovators West balancer, Metco pulley system, billetflow blower pulley, 85lb injectors, dragon TB, custom bridge brackets so you don't have to change timing cover) Also have COP conversion harness and factory COPs to get rid of the coil packs and clean that up and make room for the supercharger.

Bump... I'd be willing to go down to 16,500 for everything. That stings to swallow, but I do want it to go to someone who knows these cars and the amount the work and time that is invested in mine.

It's a New Year and time keeps on moving regardless. $14K. I know it's still a lot, but time keeps repeatedly telling me that I just need to let this go to a new home. I found a leaking fuel line that I have to replace now. Reach out if you have any questions.

This is tough, but I want to see the car go to an enthusiast of our cars. Willing to part with the car only (Not the supercharger parts) for $10k. Been driving the car around the neighborhood to keep it going and she's running great.

Wow! Don’t give it away! So sorry I can’t save this great car. I sure hope it finds a great home.

I certainly didn't want to go that low! I just need to try to get it to move and really want someone on here to pick it up so I can at least track the next stages of life. There were a few folks from the forum that pinged me last year over the phone, but don't remember their names or info since they called me and it was so long ago. One guy was from Florida and seemed really interested. Maybe someone will see it soon.

Beautiful car, but just dont have the means to acquire it.

In the meantime, I'm just as curious as these guys about the rear spoiler. What is it? Looks like a wrap around from an 80s Camaro?
