Default My 69 restored to Pro Tour Specs

This is an automoblie that I have owned for 30 years. It has seen many changes and several motors and transmissions. 2 Years ago I decided I would do a frame-off resto on it. First I decided to go after the suspension. I added a Global West pro Touring package. QA1 coilovers are great and I lost over 40 lbs eliminating the front springs. Tubular A-Arms come powder coated and there is a nice weight loss again. The brakes are supplied by Wilwood. 6 piston up front and 4 piston(drilled & slotted) in the rear. Calipers were over 6lbs apiece lighter. The leaf springs are set up differently with this system. I then added a Currie rear with a Ford 9 inch and Keisler 5 speed. Next I purchased a 427 small block from American Speed. The motor has 569rwhp & 616lb tq. Be Cool Radiator really keeps it running cool on the hot Florida summer days. . The frame was removed and powdercoated along with anything that could be removed. Every nut, bolt and body panel was changed. I had a few that were good but I wanted all new sheetmetal. The windows were easy to get but finding all the proper rollers for the windows took some extra time. I added the Year One spoiler which is off the 69 Trans Am. My next addition was a third brake light. I settled on Viper Blue as my color. CCW Rims 19/18 really set the car off. I also added the Dakota Digital dash. It is a direct replacement for the stock unit. You have a choice of several colors and I went with blue. It has several nice features built in to the dash. 0-60 mph time in seconds High speed recall 1/4 mile time in seconds end of 1/4 mile speed high rpm recall.

I live in Crystal River which is just north of Spring Hill, so only a few hours away. I am ready to bring it over to Daytona on Saturday and have some fun.

Is there a particular place everyone hangs out. I normally go over to Ormond Beach by late afternoon so I can get a decent spot.
