12-31-2005 07:28 PM V8 chevette project
Well I am starting a new project. My last one was a heavy fast street car (1990 9c1 caprice police car, BBC 505, 4000lbs 10:94 @124.5 1/4 pump gas and a 150 nos hit) The caprice is for sale. My new project will be light and fast (I hope) the base car is a $200.00 1979 chevette 2door basic outline as follows,ADD Rover 4 Litre aluminum v8, Wipple supercharger, 200R4 trans and cj5 Dana 44 rear end. I have already sorced a front brake upgrade (1986 Fiero front calipers, bracket and rotor, bolt on affair very easy!)

Tonight i started to strip the interior out to get started. Wow was that nasty! The other night i welded up the lower hinge on the drivers door so now it opens and closes with out the door dropping down. I didnt find any treasures hidden under the carpet, just the rust hole in the drivers side floor, not too bad.
