Since the raspberry flamb Dart was to lead a double life, David and Tracie couldn't dress the interior in the manner of a race-only car. The compromise is a blend of stock and custom pieces consisting of the factory dash cluster perched in front of a pair of JAZ lightweight seats. The door, rear side panels, and headliner are custom-made units that David covered in black tweed. Since the Dart sees a lot of road time, a JVC stereo taps into the wiring system. Finally, David built and installed a rollcage and subframe connectors for added safety during rapid acceleration tests.
The transformation from "beater to streeter" may have taken David and Tracie on a 10-year journey, but the finished product can now hammer the competition with a knockout punch.
