A lot of things you could have done differently... except..... your not keeping the car...... Dude... Sell the fire chicken and keep the Camaro!!! 383 rotating assembly more or less bolts in the stock block, aluminum heads cool better, save weight and add HP at a comparative price to rebuilding a set of iron heads, or, just bolt a blower on it and bam, 300 hp... but... your not keeping it.... Built a 383 for my sons 89 fire chicken, really brought it to life. Looks like you do good work. Keep it up, take some classes and learn to paint... I admit that painting nowdays involves a lot of Osha... wasnt so hard to deal with 20 years ago. As mechanically inclined as you are, I am betting you could handle it. Keep up the good work, looking forward to seeing it done and on the road again!
