Default Mutant I and Mutant II

thought I would post a few pictures of the Mutant and the one I am working on Mutant II.
This is a 2004 chassis with 1965 body on it

YOU SIR are AWESOME and you have my undivided attention. I would like all the details. Do you keep them for yourself or are they customer cars or for sale?

Thanx
Buzz

Thanks..
These are for me. The whole build on both cars is on http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=784809


And as far as the for sale thing..everything has a price..lol


I am at the tuning stage on the Mutant II and was over here doing some reading, so I thought I would but these up.
The 65 has been done about 3 years..Did the Power Tour with it last year.
The 70 is coming along, kinda hit a wall with tuning the twin turbos.
Working thru that now...
Then I start priming and blocking for paint.


I will probably have some tuning questions.

WOW, just WOW.
Man I wish I had the skills some of you guys have. That is just F'n cool.

Great work! What do you do for a living if you don't mind me asking?
If not automotive stuff, where did you learn to do stuff like this?

Damn that's awesome...

Thanks,
I work in the oil industry. I just have a passion for building cars. I've been doing it as long as I can remember. My dad was a awesome mechanic and welder, my brothers were into cars, just kinda runs in the blood.
So I learned from my Dad, brothers and alot of trial and error..lol

Thought I should update this.
Car is up and running, its set on 650rwhp right now @9lbs of boost.. :-) :-)
We are doing the bodywork now, both rear quarters were removed and full quarters are on, welded out and in the primer/block stage. Doors are in bondo/block stage, fenders, hood, and trunk are in primer/block stage. Its been slow lately due to life and the things that come up, but its all good and progress is being made. its just slow

FWIW/FYI--- Stock 04-06 GTO front suspension is junk, plain and simple! There are numerous threads documenting all the issues on here and LS1GTO dot com.

And that is why numerous aftermarket parts exist to fix this issue. Once some badass ************ eliminates the stock handicap of late model bodywork interfering, the solutions are endless. That being said, I think I will retire to bed and have a wet dream about a 1970 body on my 2004 GTO. I don't think I am equipped to handle the awesome that is the idea of the 1965 body on my car.

When you are ready, get a plasma cutter and give me a call....We can cut up that 2004 and get started on a 2004/upicktheyear .......how about a 2004/1967??
