She needs some work, but overall it doesn't look too bad. That'll look sweet when you paint her

Looks like you've got some good plans. What about engine mods? Please tell me that Edelborck carb isnt going to be staying on there.

nothing that cant be fixed with a little paint. the only problems i have are: t-top seals and a little rust on the top of the rear window. i have all the trim rings and centers for the rallys (yes those are original 1970 corvette rallys). and i wasnt thinking that light of a blue. i was thinking a little darker. the engine is about 425hp. and its backed by a th375 with a 2700 stall and shift kit. i have a richmond posi unit with 3.73 gears i need to install.

why yes sir it is. personally i cant stand holley as they are to tempermental. it has plenty of engine mods: flat top pistons, balanced rotating assm, 1996 vortec cast iron heads, air gap manifold, 750 edelbrock carb, eccel super coil on an HEI dist, headers (dont know who makes them, they came with the car), and a cam (dont remember the specs on it).

you can't. i took the bench seat out so i can install some buckets. i have a pair out of a 1991 celica that actually match the interior. also i took a center console out of a 1773 camaro to put between the seats. it will be done soon. a few saturdays here and there it will be back on the road again.

Lovely motor you have there. Maybe it's just that we hardly ever see US cars like that on our roads, but it looks great!

thats kinda funny. i showed that picture to my fiance and she thinks it ugly.
"cars look ugly with 2 different colors on it" i laughed my ass off at her. i asked her what makes my car different from all the other cars that she pointed out at all the car shows with 2 different colors. she didn't say much after that.
