    After joining TW, every time I try to get into another forum I just cant do it. All the other forums just lack something that TW has! So I decided to post this car up here because I really enjoy it and have no where to show my build!

    So far I do not have much to show since I just got the car, but this is what it is.

    The car as 117,xxx on the body and about 15,xxx on the motor. I purchased it in Mass on 4/15/12 for $3500 and have been toying with it since!


    350 Chevy SB V8
    Edlebrock 650 carb
    Hooker Headers
    True Duals- Flowmaster 50's
    200-R4 tranny
    3.73 rear end

    The huge cowl is not my taste, but it will stay for now. I like cowl hoods, but smaller. A 2.5'' or 3'' is what I am going for.

    Front quarter pannel has been primered due to past damage. Rear wheel wells and doors need some minor work as well. Structurally it is a solid car though.

    Thanks, yeah its really not to bad. besides the wheel wells and under the doors it looks great. Even then though driving down the street you would never notice any major body damage.

    The first day I got it there was a ton of junky stickers on it, and really crappy tints that I pulled off. The stripes on the sides are now removed as well. I think it looks cleaner that way.

    Nice G body. There's only one thing to do with a cowl that tall: Make a reason to have a cowl that tall. :D
