no progress other than it is in the new garage. i still need to finish the garage project so there wont be any money to put into it for awhile. we have everything we need to get it wired and fired up with the pump gas fuel system so we will be working on that soon i think. no tranny/converter/driveshaft...

that is a nice car. seen it in person when he had it. he had that car for quite a few years.his brother has a quick simple mustang to. some reason i thought for sure it was a twin turbo fuel injected car. you would know better than me. lol i took my car out there to advance auto for our little car show once. a week later it was stolen. i kinda got out of cars then. that was the last time i seen his car. congrats! thats a really nice car.

Yeah, that's awesome. Your shop is probably 20 times the size of my garage. Which oddly enough is the same size as my apartment.

Do you have the part numbers available?

I'd love to make a setup like this...

Sweet!

Have you thought about an aftermarket front subframe?
I should get you some more room.

I am working on a 66 with a Martz front clip. I have a LS1/4L60e that I bought to put in it. But I am thinking about selling the 5.7/4L60e and buying a 6.0/4L80e I found local. I want to do a truck manifold single setup.

I bookmarked your picture link for inspirational purposes.

Were you able to keep your A/C in your truck? These are both SIIIICK builds, and those headers are exactly what want to build for my LSX TT Grand National... just need to get rid of a few toys to free up some funding lol. The one thing I wont give up is my A/C though...

Loving the new garage...I hope you left some room for a lift or two

So wait, where's the Fairmont? Did she finally cross the River Styx?
