    So I've been messing with my best friends girl... Eleanor!

    What a ride, GT 500 hand signed by Carroll Shelby. The car went through a complete frame off resto. The folks who built it did a premo job... but they are car guys not audiophiles. So with the help of my buddy John, we took to the task of helping Eleanor sing.

    John and I have been doing this kind of work as a passion for the last 16 years.

    The goal of this project were to try to sound deaden the car as much as an 40 year old car can be sound deaden oh with a 575 HP motor! And to upgrade the audio components for better sound stage and audio quality. This is not a boom boom project... though we have built a few. Our goal is to try to make the interior of the car a more comfortable sound stage.

    So here are some pix of the last few weeks...

    thats really cool, what a great project. :cool:

    I hate to say it though, thats one ride where I think I'd rather hear the motor than any sound system. :)
