You don't think they will be confused enough, looking at 390's on the back of a "FWD" car???

I'm not really looking for subtle when I head to the race track. I am looking for something along the lines of "in your face and ass kicking"

Thanks guys.
Thanks also to the guys who said they don't like them. Fortunately for me, I haven't seen a lot of Mustangs with these wheels where I am.
We will know soon enough how long these take to get in our hands. As long as it is quick enough, these are the first choice.

UPDATE
Here are a couple of pics of the custom bellhousing we are submitting for SFI approval. We expect to get only pieces back, if even that much after their testing.
If you compare this bellhousing to the one from McCloud, this one looks much more capable of withstanding a major blast.

Looks like a piece of pipe (we use for pile) with a couple of cut flanges. We make stuff like that at work all the time

And can we bolt those up to an LSJ and a T-56????
The finished one will look considerably less like a sewer pipe and more like a bellhousing.

i had a set of 14" stock rims widened to 12".
the car was a 1966 nova tubbed (but not the diff),
fuel cell and batt in trunk, and I still have the 355
rollerized and 6-pack. I used to run it with the stock hubcaps,
omfg, what a sleeper. shoulda raced it somewhere not
on the streets. it was banned from the track, as it lacked all safety gear,
including lap belts. God was i stupid when i was youger!!!!!!!!

looks like this may be completed a little late, but its a work of art.
give him some slack, he was pumped for this summer unveil.
I'm sure he will be ready for groundhog day.... keep chuggin' Red.
