Re: Newbe from Houston Texas

Not sure it is worthy of pics!!! It is going to be a long project to get it even close to getting back on the road. This was taken sat as I loaded it up on the trailer. This was the first time it has moved it 30 years.

Re: Newbe from Houston Texas

Hard to tell with just the one pic...looks like it need more than just a cut and polish.

Take a few more phtos down the road of the interior, engine area and trunk. Sad to see how some treat the old stuff that could be gems today.

Re: Newbe from Houston Texas

The plan as of right now is to replace the floors and one qtr panel. There is a thread in the body shop section with some pics. As far as motor I am thinking of staying with the Pontiac 350 that's in it and find an overdrive trans. I am still up in the air about the suspension. I will probly just rebuild the stock stuff with a slight drop. I would love to do coil overs and tubluer control arms but I will never get this car on a track. I want it to be a good driver so I can do the hotrod power tour one year. One thing I do plan to add is power brakes. It is a factory Ac car with power steering but no power breaks.

That's the jist of it for now.
