Re: My New 69 Protour Car

Very Nice John.

Yup, it is easy to get burned out of project cars especially when too much of the work is outsourced and you don't start with a very realistic budget or lack deep pockets.

Should be a screamer once you are done!

Re: My New 69 Protour Car

I just might come by and take a look at it. Landed in Vegas about 2 hours ago!

I don't know how you find these cars John but what I do know is that it will be nothing but stellar when it is completed.

Looks like a great project John. Curious why an LS7 isn't an option for this one? Do you like the LS3 better for a reason? Or is boost in the future for this one?

LT1 would be cool, not too many builds out there with one yet.

LS3 is 20 HP more then the LS7 crate motors for $6k less

I'm also thinking about adding a ZL1 blower that can be acquired for under $3k
