Unique Center Steer RnP Install

I would be very interested to drive the following car to see what the bumpsteer would be like. Don Bowman was nice enough to send me some pictures of a 54 Chev that had a 1986 Grand Am rack installed. Kudos to Don for the excellent photographs taken during a snowstorm! It's fantastic that we are able to share information on the Internet because I never thought of using a mating plate between the rack and tie rods. This opens up a whole new ballgame. Maybe I won't have to knotch the oil pans. You also get to use stock 54 tie rod assemblies.
