    Wow its been a while. Sorry for taking forever. Where am i right now... The motor and trans mission are installed. Havnt really drove it alot just a few laps around the town. I live in a SMALL town so not too much. But Trans is rebuilt with a 3000 stall and a shift kit. She thumps pretty ahrd. Sounds killer. Timing is still a little funny. Once the car heats up it starts acting like the batteries dead or the timing just way off. But when its cold it starts fine. I havnt got the timing set just yet because i am soon to be getting a Edelbrock Performer RPM intake and Edelbrock 750 carb for $130 from a friend of mine. So i want to wait until they are installed. I am also thinking of installing a 88-92 camaro surpentine setup. Havnt really decided yet. In id say late January or early February im going to get some money back from school. I will be getting the car painted before i graduate from college. So i have alot of plans just taking some time. Here are some pics so far.

    As far as the guages. I needed an acurate tach so i put a 2 5/8 sunpro until i figure out somthing else. I am thinking about installing all Z series auto meter guages. Here is what i got right now.

    I love having the guages in the console. Just looks so sweet.
