Been working swing shift. It has my body so F**ked up. I cant sleep more than a few hours and than I am wide awake. This sucks , I only have one day a week off. I want to get out in the garage and work on my car early. Between waitng on parts ,getting deffective parts, waiting some more and only able to work on the car 1 day a week, I dont know that I will live to see finished.

Nice to see some of you are making progress, it gives me hope.

x275 stuff and some grudge racing maybe..no street driving..car laws are to fucked up around here..would never pass inspection..

Yeah wanted to do the camaro..would love to but wanted to be up and running by the end of winter and that wouldnt be happening..plus how light i needed to get it would of taken a hell of a ton of work..if i did the same work to the mustang it would be around 2350 with me in it..witch i might be doing..

heres the only pic i have of the car and it was the day i got it..was prepping it for paint..an yes i hate them fucking rims...

When do you plan on having it run by? Car looks like a decent start to what you want. Whats the powerplant?

You still have the camaro, or did you get rid of it?

Its a street car, 1968 Chevelle. Did a frame off on it got the body in base coat, she is wired and plumed. Building the engine now. Putting together a 496 BBC with a set of RFD heads and a Jeff Prock N20 system. It should be fun!!

bahaha you always were a funny guy!

If we do a roll i probably wont even be able to hook up for shit, so you would have me there. You still have the 5 speed or do you finally dish out a glide?

i almost sold all my sbc shit and started a bbc..was going to do a 496..with ported rhs heads and a almight hit..would be a 7s easy for the weight..

im not sure how long ill keep this car..i really want to do a mud/trail truck..nearest 2 tracks is 3hr rd trip or 5hr rd trip..But i just found out the fucking 4wd truck laws suck up here..i can only go 2" over the factory tires and 2" over the factory ride height..So that sort of kills the street truck on rockwells with 14" of lift and 48" street tires and 49" tractor tires..
