    Hey all, just picked up a 1971 RS from a few good guys out in Iowa, brought it back home to Ohio and will be tearing it down and rebuilding it starting real soon.

  11. 5.3 LS truck motor

    EFI in your modern Classic
    I was down at a few local junk yards two weeks ago looking for a small plastic piece for my truck. At every yard I was at, I asked how much for one of the 5.3 motors. My truck is in the 151000+ range now, and I'm not an easy guy on the gas. At every yard I was told $500. This seems like a good...

  16. 69 "Retromod" interior -- instrument cluster and seats

    Restoration Corner
    Just looking at my first posts before I bought the car this summer. It's like reading the words of a naive 16 year-old. As a remorseful man once said, "If I knew then what I know now..." It's been painful occasionally (finding rust spots here and there and a welding patches), but FUN (turning...
