In time my friend in time. The project car is one that I personally wanted to do for the Chevy 100 year anniversary .
The engine was purchased dirty and spent. It is from a 79 Camaro 2 bolt main. I never had the chance to build a true hotrod.
I've dealt mostly with Ford trucks, Chevy trucks, Mazda Miata's, Geo Metro, Mercury Montego, Even VW beatles.
The monte has had it's time with being stock. It was the perfect Rat Rod project car. Not too far gone to fix up but yet not
too perfect either. Not looking for a concourse car here. Not into judges with Microscopes looking for fine line scratches in the paint. Here is a run down on the mods this car has. And please understand that every dollar of this build has been funded from the sale of Teflon Window guide kits for Mazda Miata's.

Freshly painted
Satin Black by me in drive way.
I know the car is not perfect but a lot of time and effort mostly done by me went into this car to make it very special.
No others look like this one. I have about $2500 in the car minus the Labor. About a year since the tow truck delivered
it bone stock to the driveway. So far I've driven it about 20 miles. Still working out all the little details.
Looking forward to giving some advice and getting some in return...
