Lost Job, Lost Apartment, Lost Dog, Now losing My Project Car too!!!
Ok, here's the deal, last year, I started on this V6 Chevette project and got a bunch of the ground work done for a quick little car. Sence that time, I've moved to a house with no place to work, and put the car and parts in storage. I no longer have a place or the money to finish thic car, and to top it all off, I got laid off. Anyways, check the car out at http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2080082. Some of the parts included are::
1. 3.4V6 from 94 firebird with 96,000miles
2. 4L60E from same car
3. ECM and wireing
4. Custom console
5. Two 15" subs in Custom box
6. Custom Motor mounts
Like I said, this car would be a great project for someone with a place to work and a little time. Also, the car seem to be in great shape before i started the swap other than the little 1.6 had died.
ALL THIS PLUS MORE FOR
I HAVE ALMOST $2000 INVESTED AND TONS OF TIME
Check out details on this type of 60deg V6 swap here at: http://www.angelfire.com/extreme3/v6chevette/
Here's some pics of my other cars that I have on my MySpace page:
What car should look like when finished
Thats when I sold my 89 J-body (silver car on left) so I could start to get parts (like my 3.4 on the right) Luckly I have a friend who can do all the wireing for the EFI and patch the ECM's wireing into the chevette's. As of now this is what the car looks like now as I wate for parts from eBay

Hey, I thought I would keep the few nice people who look at my web site updated on my progress with my project.
I got my box built for my 15's. It should look sweet once I get it covered. As you can see, I also have been working on my tallights. What I did was cut some plexi-glass to fit in the recessed part of the light. Then I masked off the lenses and painted the stock light. Next I got a cup and used it to mask off the round center of the lights and painted the back side of the plexi-glass to match the housings. The fun Part was the back-up lights. I got two flash lights and modified them so the cars light bulb would fit in to the lens. Then used a hole saw to cut the stock lens so the one from the flash light would sit flush with the plexi-glass one I made. I think it looks kinda cool.
I thought I should include a picture of myself on the site. It's just to bad It's the one where my mom and dad wanted to try out the new microwave. But the good news is that I'm OK!
If you want to see more pics and maybe learn a little bit about the guy behind the madness check out my MySpace page
Ok it's 10/25/05 and I havent messed with the chevette in about a month. It's not forgotten, but more it's more like I dont have any money. Check back and let me know what you think. I'll keep everyone updated.
Another up date: It's 12/24/05 I've now got the money (more like a little extra to spend)for my chevette, but my new job at Radio Shack takes up tons of time and energy. I just got done working 43hours over the past 4 days and I'm looking forward to getting some time tomarow after all the christmas stuff to get a little bit done with my chevette.
Yet Another up date: 05/21/06 This car is for sale For
$1200, that includes the 3.4 V6, the 4L60E trans, the ECM, wiring, Custom motor mounts, oil pan and console, 2 15" Subs in custom box Plus Lots more. Almost $2000 invested and tons of time. Hate to sell, but I got laid off.
