    Its a labor of love right!...?

    Thanks for answering my questions so far - got my project a couple of months ago - and at least made it road worthy enough to enjoy Oct & Nov, before it gets stuck inside.

    Always wanted a 70s muscle car as I grew up around them before I could drive. I think what you guys have done to these cars are better then when I saw them new!

    Under The Hood 350 '77 Engine Block I think. If anything looks amiss let me know.

    Interior - horn repaired, new carpet added and door panel replaced (D side)

    Didn't get any good exterior shots yet - going to probably keep black & black scheme - but will see about that in the spring/summer.

    Week or so after I got it - when I was trying to get the rim locks off. :)

    Great Site - Its already been a memorable experience driving around town and hearing everyone's stories!

    Looks like I see the yellow handle of
    The oil dip stick on the left side of the motor
    That would make the block 80 or newer.
    Just something to check in too.
    Nice ride I like it a lot.

    That yellow (passenger side) is one of those electrical connector sleeves (cant remember which wire offhand). Dipstick is on the drivers side way down low. Transmission stick is on passenger side near firewall. It does have an '80 grill though I realized the other day - which now I understand is why the center mounting hole doesn't line up.
