    Most of the history behind this car is in my profile. I purchased this car when I was in 8th grade for $500. It rolled and that was about all that resembled a car. Over the four years of high school my dad and I built a decent small block (mild cam, built heads, 4 bolt main), rebuilt a TH350 with a 2500 Jegs stall converter, and did a fair amount of body work (painted the car my senior year in our garage). I built this car on a high school budget so many corners were sacrificed in order to take it to senior prom (priorities). I'd like to upload a few photos of the project when I was in high school to show how it progressed. Over the past couple years, I have been financially able to clean up the corner cutting of the high school days. I will continue to update this thread with projects I do with this car.

    Since I got my car back from my parents in 2016, I upgraded the transmission to a TCI Streetfighter TH350 and a few other odds and ends.

    Much more to follow!

    *Photos are not in chronological order, just how I came across them on my computer.

    Nice car to you as well. Not too many care for the rubber bumper cars.
