    Know what ya mean. I haven't been motivated to work on the Nomad for the last 15 years. Then my son reached an age where he is really diggin' cars. He kept asking me when we were going to get that Nomad running. After all I did build an engine for it and it's been sitting covered up in the corner,,,,LOL.

    I pushed it outside and my son and I washed 15 years of dust and grime off of it and thats all it took. The cool memories came rushing back and we dove into the car the very next day.

    I am now going over the new/old engine and getting it ready for the transplant. Looks like it's long sleep only ruined the valve springs. Replaced those and reset the lash. Pulling old motor out of car as we speak, then it will be on to the brakes, (wheel cylinders, master cylinder etc...) Goal is to have it back running and dialed in for the Pumpkin Run in October.
    Can't wait to wing the piss out of it and hang some gears

    this thread motivates me to get back on my old project. won't behome till jan/feb so all i can do is plan it out. and my Z is still stock so i've been ebaying mods lately and just planning out the impala project. there was a thread a lil while ago about a LS1 lumina a guy tore into. he did some awesome work and really inspired me to jump into the engine bay. can't remember the name of it but if you are looking for motivation, try reading a few pages of that thread.

    Huh, this one says Apache 31 and its a stepside. It had the spot for the spare on the drivers side, but we bought a flare w/o it to clean it up some. But the back glass is a wrap around.
