No wonder you are finding so much... that weedy wrecker has camouflaged them cars well. Ha!

Well I am not a Chevy guy, but admit it would be a nice toy to mess with.

I never really cared for chevy myself but i do have a soft spot for ttop cars and this is a real ttop 4 spd with the tranny still there all original not ruined and touched good factory wiring no mods... only thing ever done to it was a motor. if it didn't have the ttops i wouldn't had bought it. if it didn't have the 4spd i wouldn't had bought it at the time... just kinda turned out to be the perfect car for me... I never really cared for chevy but i pulled the block out.. it was so easy i could blow the motor one night and swap a new one in same night and be running the next morning... mind blowing how easy it is to work on! Not to mention it was cheap enough i can't even tell the price.

Oh yeah, them cars had room to work with. Dont blame you on the purchase. It is understandable... I would probably done the same if looking at it out there waiting in the weeds. Plus side newer LS variants are everywhere. Just have to standalone a computer and update your gauges.

I would for the fun side of it, get a Trans AM front clip, and smoke out the rear lenses. I never cared for the tear drop faux hood, and the Firebird Trans AM just looked so much better.

Maybe even do a matte black paint job to boot!

As of me i'm going to clear coat the patina.. currently planning a new 350 install.. soon to have a grand saved. *i have a job now* find some factory z28 wheels and just play with the car and drive it.

Here is the 360 looking pretty. Soon to be stock air cleaner and oil cap with gold valve covers.  These are next currently getting media blasted and painted. Only 14's but i have a nice set of tires to go on them with 4 center caps and rings. Doing a change up of wheels this tire change. It will also be getting the shackles cut down to lowering and basically hidden. The dual exhaust back there they don't need to pop much anymore. Also lowering the front about 3'' using lowering plates.

14" rims are not bad, just getting good G60s in 14" is a problem. I think there are still some who make them.

Here I thought you'd be cleaning up operating your Camero Z28... unless winter has slow you down?

Already bought and installed the 350 ran it etc someone sold me a bad motor the rod bearing was spun which went out the pan after running. So i pushed it back into my shop. Haven't looked back yet just need more money.

Bummer! At least you have a good chance of getting a 350 just about anywhere. I am sure you will be a bit picky next time around.
