    Yes indeed. I think it was all tastefully done though. The only thing I'm not totally in love with are the wheels. But, that's what's hot these days, so I get it.

    The Boss '9 in this car is built from new aftermarket castings. It's infinitely more readily available (albeit not cheap).

    At least it's a Ford powering the Ford. I actually like the use of the Boss 9.

    Yeah not a fan of the wheels either, but a beautiful build none the less. I remember seeing something on the Boss 9 as being available as parts up to a crate engine, didn't check the price tag, didn't want to.

    Can't be any worse than a Dodge elephant Hemi at $15K.

    You all should read the article first. That engine is a custom build by Jon Kaase. I'm guessing that the owner has several times the cost of the Hemi in that motor alone. It's not a "crate motor". It's custom built from individual aftermarket pieces. Blocks and heads are available from aftermarket sources.
