About Me...

Been a "car guy" since the age of 14 (early 60's). Have been inactive with my hobby cars since I lost my garage; need some place to work on them-don't work in the dirt anymore. <g>

Have a '70 SS 396 Chevelle (original owner), three Cosworth Vegas (all '76's'). Have a boat too, but it will be a donor for the Chevelle's engine until I can get the 454 back together (LS6). In a perfect world I'd rebuild the boat too, but the wife puts her foot down at keeping it.

In the '70's & '80's I bracket raced my Chevelle until the 454 blew a head gasket and damaged the block & head. Since then life has "been in the way" and it sits. I WILL drive it again on the street one day.

Tom

I've uploaded a photo of my Chevelle and my two Cosworth Vegas (will be picking up the 3rd 12/10); also added my daily driver (for now) my 1995 S 10.

The Cosworth on jack stands was sitting for 15 years and I started getting it road worthy. Cleaned the fuel system, replaced the injectors, etc. As you can see still need brake work, paint, etc.

The other Cosworth needs a full restore, but to get it registered it needs to run. I pulled the tank, cleaned it, put a new fuel pump in it, but (to my chagrin) didn't clean the tank unit electrical connectors (a common problem with these) and have not pulled it down again. Then just need to service the engine and get it smogged. Then I will work on the restoration needs one at a time.
