Well here is my ride. I have owned the car since 1989 and these photos are from 1991 when I completed the first restoration. The car is currently about 80% complete on the 2nd restoration. This is when things kind of got out of control..... the build sheet shows the upgrades. I am going towards the pro-touring / street machine look. High horsepower with suspension and brake upgrades. conversion from TH400 to a TKO 600. Interior will remain stock to maintain the classic look. I will post the newer photos of the Blown motor in the car, tranny installed, chassis, rear end, and brake upgrades once I get around to taking some photos.

You're right...never can do too much. I figured if the day were to ever come that I do a frame off restoration I would get an after market frame that is already boxed and mini-tubbed then build from there....
That day may come sooner then I think if this frame twists on me. My guess is the only thing that would prevent that from happening is the limited size tires that will fit in the stock wheel well .....this beast will never hook up. I'll blow the tires off of this thing before something brakes. So I hope ;D

here is pic of the motor in... still have a lot to do in terms of final hook up. Cooling System, Fuel Lines, Linkage, Dist, plug wires, etc. But I was able to stuff this monster in the car using chevelle motor mounts, Chevelle headers and BBC Z bar for tranny linkage.
