The plan for the car is to be a modern driver. My wife and I are "car" people, and if we have kids one day we want a family car with some character. So, the plan is to add modern goodies to the car to make is safe, fun and reliable. Fuel injection , power steering, disc brakes, od trans, seatbelts, collapsable column, etc... combined with classic looks.

Ideally, I would have loved to add a Hemi or Viper engine to this, but the costs for such an engine are beyond me. I came across a deal on a 1999 Corvette LS1 for only $500. It was in pieces, so I had to reassemble. After settling on the drivetrain I had to find a way to make it fit.

We bought this car last summer out of washington state. We bought it online sight unseen and it seemed to be a good deal for the money. It's not every day you see a late 50's Plymouth on the streets. It wasn't without it's need of work, though, to be a roadworthy car. I needed to replace the windshield, add new brrake lines, etc. I was parting an '84 Trans Am at the time, and the "Belve" needed a new master cylinder. With minimal, and I mean minimal finessing, the thing bolted right in! Voila- dual resavoirs, and power brakes. Much safer...
