no project car is ever truly "finished" but i have to take a break now. baby on the way! i need a lil mechanic helper anyway. in two years i think i've done quite well seeing as i've averaged 80 hrs a week at work and spare time has been in short supply. but overtime funds camaros! i'm happy with my car and the only thing i didnt build myself was the 700r4 i now have in it. i needed the overdrive and a lower first gear helps too. nothing wrong with the th350-c i built but i couldnt do 3300rpm's on the interstate anymore. the constant droning of the exhaust made the car miserable to drive, just a terrible frequency at 3300rpms, 3000 i could handle. wierd huh? i'm proud to say i built this thing from the ground up myself and no system has been un-altered. oh yeah, the vintage air sys was a must. it gets hot down south baw!

well its coming along. not a show car by any means but she's drivable and performs fairly decent. its a fun car but the steering is so loose i dont want to take it to, oh i dont know, 140mph.....again......just hypothetically speaking. seriously kids 140 on 30 year old suspension is pretty dumb(especially when i'm the one who put it together)shhhh!
