First GM, first G Body. I have always wanted an El Camino. So I got one.

1987 El Camino.

Thanks for having me. My intentions are simple.
  • Upgrade Rear Axle and suspension. Ladder Bars and Coil overs. Ford 9".
  • T400 Trans built for kill, With a Brake.
  • Front Suspension Upgrade with All lightweight parts. Uppers, Lower, Coil overs.
  • All Wheel Discs
  • X275's Tires on ????? Wheels.
  • Correct looking wheels and tires to match rear.
  • Fiberglass Hood, W/ or W/O Cowl
  • Fiberglass Front Bumper
  • Fuel Cell In Rear (Tactfully done)
  • Battery Box in Rear.
  • Add Manual Steering Gearbox
  • Figure out that big *ss HVAC system in the Engine Compartment. NOT Needed.
  • Interior is MINT. New Bench seat stays, with Harnesses.
  • Arrange instrument cluster with all new goodies..
  • Mount Floor Shifter.
I sure could use some knowledge transfer from some die Hard G-Body fans on what I have listed.. Remember.. This is NEW to me, Old hat for some of you, be patient.
Thank you so much.

Sounds racing and driving is a goal, correct?

Yes, more street driving. Not chasing a number anymore. It's gonna run what it runs.
Just want to drive it to the track, click off a few passes and drive home.

I guess we all dream a little or a lot about putting our kid's college funds or the mortgage payments into our cars then we get a slap on the face "wake up kiddo, just keep dreaming"
