Well, after a long break I am back in an fbody.
Just made a deal on a 2001 Z28 M6 with 145,000km one owner car, finished in Pewter.

Driveline is currently out, building a cammed 6.0 and T56. Should be a fun street car.

Some quick pictures of it as it sits :

From the pics looks like a hardtop. Nice score. I like the Berger blackout too.

Donor driveline is out after a few hours of wrenching last night. Now to tear her down and get the cam/valvetrain done, and then stab it into my Camaro.
