Ok guys this thing has been sitting long enough! My wife, (girlfriend at the time) bought me this car for a birthday gift the summer we graduated high school. We all have been through a lot and it’s been in our engagement photos, wedding photos, baby announcements and so on. Lots of memories with this car and my family, as well as spending time with my dad building it and making the changes throughout the years. It was last on the road on September 13th 2016. That’s the day I lost the engine in this thing at 1600 miles. Long store short got some heads built a motor and it ran great best of a 12.05 @ 111mph. But it didn’t last long when a valve retainer failed in the heads I had done. Guy didn’t want to stand behind it and I was starting a new carrier so it sat. Moved from storage to home and now finally showing it some love. I am putting together a basic stock 360 with good rings, head gaskets and studs and gonna hit it with some boost. This may start off slow and I hope I don’t bore you guys too much but at this point I have all the wiring stripped out of the car, and everything out of the way to move forward on the mini tub. I’ve got a buddy of mine helping me with some of the fabrication so I’m waiting to get it over to his place to start the cutting. Here’s a couple photos of what it was last time it was on the road.
