Looks great. So do those beadlocks. What kind of driveline setup are you using and how much converter?

With your car being black and putting in a sb2 smallblock it reminds me of one of the old Pinks shows that had the same setup. That guy gave a big block car something like 8 cars and still hunted him down!

Good luck with the build. That is going to be one nasty ride when you are done!

Bolt together style converter? 9" out back I assume? Should cut in the mid 1.2x 60ft range I would imagine.

That millers race engines sb2 camaro was fast as hell.
