This is one of the coolest (and most expensive) custom cars I have ever seen using a Cadillac Northstar for a power plant! 550 hp. of GM's finest mounted just ahead of the rear axle, giving his car the perfect 50/50 chassis balance! 👌

I actually saw this car in this months subscription to Hot Rod magazine, and the story and pictures were just incredible. This car is almost entirely hand built, with some original Tucker parts as well. Just a jewel in my book! 😎

Nice; a twin-turbo regular 4.6L Northstar, and re-using the front suspension as a rear suspension is novel.

I know, that is awesome!  I recently saw another rear-engine hot rod using a 455 Olds Tornado motor with the complete drivetrain!  I can't believe the ingenuety of some of these builders, so talented!

Wow. Just beautiful.

Love the colors as well. 

And twin turbo😛

That color just fits the car so well!  I love that burnout shot in the hot rod picture gallery! 😎
