It is a daily driver right now, and I will drive it around for a couple of months getting to know it before I dive into the restoration. I'd say by summer time or end of summer I will start the restoration.
I plan to use it as my cruiser but will drive it more than occasionally. However, us GTO men have a reputation to protect, and if I come to a red light and some punk wants to come barking up this tree, I want to have the power or torque to hand his ass to him on a silver platter
So stay with things that bolt on meaning it can easily be removed if need be? What about stroking the engine? Tell me more about that tranny mod with overdrive please and if I tweak that it has no negative affect in the purist world? TH400 is what I have, but I am sure you know that.
So I am good on doing what I want to suspension/brake systems without depreciating it correct?
Work with me guys, I am new to this classic car building thing. This is my first and hopefully not my last build. I am a gto lover and have had this passion since I was a kid but never had the time to, so guess that time has come now and I've finally found a gto that wasn't already completed, or a BIG project. Took 2 years of searching for the right one that I can take and restore and put my own touches on it, so I will be asking a lot of questions as well as doing a lot of online reading trying to expand my knowledge and understand of all of this. Want to have a good idea with all of your help where I want to go with this as well as the ends and outs of the car, so when I sit down with my machine shop and restoration guys I will know what I am talking about.
OH and pics coming soon...just purchased the car, in process of shipping it to me in California now, but did ask the previous owner to send all pictures of the car, so once I get those, I will upload them..bare with me
