My name is Garrett and this is my very first full build on a "classic" car! Blessed to have the help of a few great friends and a lot of sponsors 👌🏽👌🏽. Feel the pressure to make this car look and perform like it should!! But I feel confident it will get where I want it to be. Engine and trans was installed by Kreativestreetdesignz (was based in Las Vegas now in Texas). Suspension was done at Fastlaneperformance in Canton, GA. The suspension is all Detroit Speed (Speed 3). Wilwood 13" rotor 6 piston front, 12" rotor 4 piston rear. Wheels are American Racing VF306 3 piece wheels on BFG Comp 2's. It has a Currie Fab9 rear end with a Strange center section with 35 spline axles and Detroit TrueTrac with 3.70 gears. The drivetrain is a LSX376-B8 with a Whipple 2.9, 4l80e transmission. Holley performance Dominator ECU and all of their LSX g body engine swap parts. The car is very close to being on the road. Have to swap in a new trans, fix fuel pressure issue, install brake lines, get spacers for the rear wheels and off she goes. Between now and next spring I will be focusing on making the car look pretty. Interior work, engine bay and getting the car wrapped. (Disregard the mocked up brake lines on the 2nd to last picture lol).

The other part of the build that I didn't post pictures of is the engine. I bought the car with a TPI 350 and a 700R4. Now it has a brand new crate Chevrolet Performance LSX376-B8 with the Whipple. We got to get the engine bay cleaned up. I wish things happened a little differently and that we painted and cleaned up the engine bay first but I had to try and rush and get the car to LS fest so we skipped that step.. now got to either work around it or go backwards a bit.
