    Just signed on to the forum after starting a father/son project. Austin (he’s 14) wanted a 77 but this 78 Z28 kinda fell in our laps so here goes...

    Thanks for having us...

    Welcome to Nasty!:bowtie:
    Good to see another one being saved.
    I hope you keep those wheels. Always liked them and don't see them much anymore.

    Welcome to the madness... Looks like a fairly good project to begin with, depending on rust.

    To some people that'd look like a pile of junk. To us here in the snow/salt belt, it's a rare jewel. Good project and a place to put (a lot of) spare money. Have fun!

    Wow, what a great way to spend time with your son, especially at this stage of his life. Try to take in every moment and teach him well.

    Calling it quits for the night...looks like we’re going to have to patch the passenger side but could be worse I guess...
