I bought mine in fall of 1998 and she's a part of the family now. I had a bad episode with NOS one night and toasted the motor. I since have bought a brand new block bored .030 over, brand new trick flow intake and heads, Vortech SQ supercharger, Comp Cams 278ah, forged internals, methanol injection, aluminum driveshaft, Fluidyne radiator, 3.73g. suspension upgrades, and few more upgrades.
