The Story

I bought this car in May 2020 with not many plans other than to be a good reliable daily. Then after catching low compression on a cylinder, I decided to try my hand at building a motor. I spent a year and a half tearing the car apart, restoring the entire car, building the motor, and putting it back together. This is where I am at now. Since then, I changed the focus on my car to be a street drivable track warrior. After realizing I had built a monster of a car that I was not expecting, I named it Leviathan. All work (aside from machining) has been done by myself. Last 2 pictures in my gallery are of when I originally bought the car.
