Good to have you aboard, FE. And the year?

Like Brian asked, what's the "less than desirable work"?

Re: New guy from PA

I bought it knowing it was built in the late 80's and a fresh 383 in 2000 but it has given me major issues!I Replaced exuast then some interior stuff and then some hacked wiring and just drove it for 3 months.It would never quite run right and on xmas eve i took it out for a ride and had it break a rocker stud started to take the motor apart and found 2 broken pistions and a list of other things not correctly done inside the motor.So rebuilding the motor and redoing the engine compartment.

Ed, welcome aboard from another Pa Guy, albeit, with a '69! I see you're from Gilbertsville...my oldest son lives on Tracy Lane off Swamp Pike. Maybe we'll run onto each other some time as I plan to make one of the car show events at some point. Have fun with the update!
