I purchased this car july 2007 as a rolling chassis. I sold my previous project, a 85 firebird to buy it the day i heard about it. i handed over 1600 dollars and towed her home. after some disassembly i realized the previous owner had planned to make it into a circle track car and lost interest. It was in worse shape than the seller let on (but isnt that always the case?) After about a month of body work i shot the duplicolor laquer hugger orange and graphite grey for the stripes. After wet sanding the whole car i shot a gallon of clear with red and yellow pearl. Next came a 75 c30 454 with a 550 lift comp cam 70 chevelle ss 396 heads and a edelbock performer intake topped with a holley 780 cfm carb and a set of hedman headers. I really didnt want to go with the same old t.h. 350 auto transmittion so i dropped in a t6 5 spd donated by my 86 camaro. I wired the entire car (still working out the bugs) and got her on the road. Its first journey was march 4th 08 to the muffler shop.
