About a week ago I was looking at craigslist and came across a 48 chevy forsale or trade. I scrolled down to the pics and thought "NO FRIGGIN WAY!!!" Gary (Redscampi) was looking for another A-body to play with. It is no big suprise that I have been burnned out on working on Nikkis 72 scamp due to the fact that I never post anything new on the resto thread... http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/showthread.php?t=18311 So after talking to Nikki (it was her car) I sent Gary a pm and about a week later he has another 72 scamp along with a 400/727 combo and Nikki has a 48 chevy. The plans for the 48 are to pull out the 350/350 and replace it with the 225 that was in the Scamp after I drop in a bigger cam and get the head milled a little bit, Nikki wants a "rat rod" so it is going flat black for now and she is going to pinstripe it here and there. I am happy because as much as I love A-bodies (Yes , Im keeping my 73 Dart) when you build a 72 Scamp your kinda stuck building a 72 Scamp and lets face it a Merc grill shell and 59 Caddy tail lights just wouldn't look right in a 72 Scamp. I used to work in a rod shop and grew up working on old stuff (first car was a 27 T 2 door sedan when I was around 5 years old) so I like to cut, weld and build "Frankencars"! Me and Nikki pulled the front end off lastnite and Im going to pull the 350/350 this weekend and do some mock up for the new motor mounts on the 225 In the end I made a new friend and everyone involved is a happy camper! :toothy10: And yes the 48 chevy is getting the T/A Challenger exhaust tips MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!
