This threat has officially been resurrected!!!!
Ok.. so 2 years in hiatus was a bit much... and I'm sure those of you who follow my threat are expecting loads of progress but sadly, that is not the case. It seems every step forward has put me three steps back, and I finally opted to get some help. While I planned on doing everything myself, I decided bodywork just isn't my forte, and my friend Josh who has been guiding me along all this time, and who happens to be the guy I got the car from originally, has taken on the responsibility of bodywork and paint.
In the meantime, here are some good things that have happened...
I picked up a 1967 12 bolt 3.73 posi rear end for a pretty reasonable price. That will be getting freshened up in the near future.
I traded my 76 400 with ported 13 heads for an unmolested 70 GTO 400 with stock 13 heads. I just started digging into that tonight. Plan is a Crower 60243 camshaft, get the heads rebuilt, and freshen everything up. Hopefully a full rebuild isn't justified.
A few other things have happened but those are the big ones for now.
I will try to keep this thread going. I know it used to be a sticky, but my inactivity has cost me my VIP status...
