Hello from the Mitten aka Michigan

Hello everyone, thought I would say hey and introduce myself, as you will soon see I'm not you AVERAGE Vette guy, no izod shirts for me , Im kinda an old shoool hot rodder who happens to prefer Vettes. I work as a Machinist/fabricator and have been infected with the bug since I was a little boy

My Current project is an 82 Collectors edition that was a theft recovery that I picked up with an assembled title that KILLED its value in the future. Perfect for me as I got it CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP.

So far, I have built the motor a 3970010 block, 2 bolt converted to 4 bolt with eagle splayed caps, eagle crank, sir rods, KB pistons(.200 dome) mutha thumpr cam/lifters/springs, and a few other goodies (running 882's until my 59cc iron eagles come in)

Car was a mess when I got it, so far I have fixed the wiring, added poly bushings all around, rebuilt the th350 and added a shift kit, and the list goes on and on

Recently the motor was reunited to the car and just this weekend I sprayed it Hot Rod black.

Next on my list is a L88 style hood and fender flares, an 8 point cage, and upgrade to c5 brakes

here are a few pics for you to enjoy
