Well, two nights ago I borrowed the company flat bed and hauled the SHO down to a local SHO specialist and it looks like I will be back in the "Hot Rod" in a few days! YAHOO!!!!


Of course if when I was in high school someone were to have told me that some day I would own a four door sedan with a spoiler on the trunk I would have asked them what brownies they had been eating!

But that darn car is pretty cool, 14:90s in the quarter and all the factory goodies, leather, cd, keyless, climate control a/c, I am looking forward to getting it back.

Brian

PS, anyone want to buy a Celebrity wagon?

I drive my '73 Chevelle to work everyday, thirty miles each way, with 12mpg. No radio, no A/C, the drivers window doesn't quite go up all the way, and the heater keeps your feet slightly warm. Sometimes we can't afford the $100 a week it takes, so I have to drive the wife's '06 Cobalt. 30mpg, but the only thing fun about it is the 5-speed.

With the price of gas, first day of spring, and living in San Diego I blew the dust off of old faithful. It feels good to ride again.

Daily drivers

All three are used!!! With gas at these prices the Z71 is least driven!!! I might be taking the pro-jection system off of it...

Don't have my license yet....so I don't know why I'm posting....but when I do get it my grandpa is giving me his 68' impala four door. Hopefully that won't be the only bomb I have by then. Just can't wait to cruise on the open road.... and get a job to pay for gas... ( It ought to be 10$ a gallon by then)

Here are pictures of my newly painted front bumber (with about 5000 miles worth of driving and bugs on it too), and my 3 year old after deciding to climb up to see if he could imitate dad, and my found him and took a quick snapshot.
Also a shot of my new hubcaps installed, not a great pic but while I'm in our Georgia yard I don't want to stir up too much dust.
