    So. What's the plan. The time line before you're up and driving it?

    I know you've got a plan

    Hopefully you get her fixed up, and have a better ride then you did before. Seems feasible to me with what you have to spend.

    Congrats on getting into another fbody!

    Aparently the guy signed the wrong section so i had to go meet him and get the paperwork settled. Car should be registered tomorrow. Hopefully i'm driving it tomorrow. The transmission is gonna wait probably about a week, i took it around the block and its not that bad, but it will be coming out soon.
    Those are my plans as of now

    Well, 2k went into a beater cavalier and some is going in the TA and the rest is getting saved. The radiator is already out and the new LT1 radiator is going in tomorrow. When the trans gets pulled the hood is getting sent out for paint. Should be an exciting month.


    Got a few more pics







    Work has begun, will finish up tomorrow

    That sure is an interesting contrast between the hood and the rest of the paint
    I think I like the black wheels better than the chrome ones you have-and i'm not usually a fan of black wheels.

    Other than the lt-1 radiator being slightly better was the current one broken or what?
    Looks like you have some room for a cam swap

    It's a shame you had to go this route, but, I think you'll be very happy with the T/A. I wouldn't mind having one myself. Your wheels are going to look great on it too. Probably better on my car, but...

    The plastic on the passenger side of it was cracked. Probably could have fixed it but one crack means another may pop up and seeing as a new one was less than $150 with a lifetime warranty i figured i'd just get a new one.

    cam swap wouldn't allow me to get the car running tomorrow
    But you make a good point

    Has more surface area, the ls-1 is more than enough for even strokers. But the lt-1's can be had for cheap and they have two extra holes that aren't usable for ours that make great drain plugs.

    Since the LT1 wasn't an aluminum block they had slightly larger radiators, it's almost a direct swap and offers more cooling capacity

    and its cheaper

    Nice pickup Tater.

    Once you get the hood painted, you going with just the factory look, or blackbird stripes?

    Would love to, but i'm gonna enjoy it the way it is for now. That extra cash feels good in my pockets. Got the car running and it runs great. 2nd and 3rd are real slow going in.

    Thanks, probably gonna go stock. The black wheels break it up enough for me, don't want to overdo it.
    Might have to get around to ordering some stranos, the eibachs are a little low in the rear for my taste.

    I agree with keeping the rims. Take the black ones and put DRs on the rear for track days. Hey...Luos does it.
