I am looking for info on a certain car that somebody posted a pic of it here.
I do not have much information. Somebody was racing it.
I think it was a RWD coupe (82-84 I believe), mainly silver with some red (or burgundy).

Thanks

I think you are thinking of the ghetto blaster from Potters Automotive Parts.

They said custom parts and they modified the rear portion of the frame rails.
I don't think it is something I would like to do to my car.
I was just curious what off-the-shelf parts they put in it.
I doubt there are any
