  • Vehicle Overview

    This is the definition of champagne taste on a beer budget. This is a project being built on hand me down/discount parts. This car is intended for one thing and one thing only; being fun to drive. I found this car sitting on cinder blocks behind a shed, so during the process of revival, if it’s doesn’t make it fast, fun, or cool, it goes. It’s a flat tapper 302 with a Lunati Cam, Windsor Sr heads, weiand dual plane intake, a Holley 1850 series carb, heddman long tube headers, and dual flowmaster 40’s. Trans is a rebuilt C4 with a shift kit and a Hurst ratchet shifter. Very common setup, but most parts were either great deals, used, or flat out hand me downs. Having a background in aircraft maintenance means making things work that other people would overlook, and I think it’s coming together nicely. As for the body... who cares, that doesn’t make it go any faster!

    Future Plans

    Bigger cam, valvetrain, tremec trans swap, 9” with a posi (I know that a Chevy term, but you know what I mean), coilover suspension with a three link, and a hydraulic hand brake. Why?! Because I plan on making this a drift capable car. Why?! Because... why not?!
