welcome to the forum Bear add another to the growing list of members whose cars names contain more than three letters. ahhhhh, an often asked question lately, short answer is that no matter what it will never command the value of a true GTO, if you are doing the car for future value, stock original will always cost more to buy and to build. If you are building it for "you" do what puts a big ole Poncho loving smile on your face. it looks like a gto and with a few mods it will go faster than a gto as they are a bit lighter (thats apples to apples engine wise). the Eddy parts will swap onto any engine you may upgrade to so if you want them you will be able to use them if you wanna drop a 400 in it later.Will have to step up in carb if you do though.
