Ron, that's a nice looking car!

You gotta get a wing on that thing to help hide the parachute.

Thanks Chuck one day i would like to be able to that i keep screwing it up some how.

Thanks Donee ya a wing would help the looks also.

Barry i think it weighs more also that just seems light to me with a metal roof and QT's but it is definitely lighter than the nova .

We will see next weekend if weather permits it will be running and T&T i just hope everything is ok with it i will be putting it on some scales just so i know were everything is.

Thanks spib i will be making a bunch of changes to it over the winter but it is a good start .
As always you have to make them the way you want them no matter what it is there will be something you don't like about it.

Didn'T get it done for this weekend but we will test this Friday or saturday for sure.
the engine is in the car i have to change the lever on my trans for the new shifter and in stall a few other piece's and we will be ready to go .

With out a hood i cut the scoop off and now i have to make it fit the injection but it is better than buying a new hood .

Thanks jer.
There are a lot of little things that i want to do to it but that will take some time i will get some things done over winter like the dash and get rid of the gold stripes redo some of the inside it's not really bad but i just don't like all the aluminum i think i will try to seal as much of it up as i can and maybe put some lite weight carpet in it wire tie the wiring instead of it just hanging there it has the K&R system in it so that is a plus. put some door seal plates back on it those don't weigh anything I'm not trying to make a street car out of but i just like things look neat and clean the things i want to do isn't going to really cost much more time than anything .

And as soon as i can i want to come back out there i had a blast i wish i could just move out there but cant afford that love the weather out there.

Yep the hood scoop is already gone and the gold stripes will be also.

I didn't care for that either but that's a easy fix i have to do some molding on the hood there will be a injector sticking thru there.
