    So side tracked again but this one will be faster for me to scab together for a driver. I never thought of throwing this together since I ended up with a spare STRAIGHT chassis. Current plan is to have this driving by next Sunday. I have a rebuilt 350 and a 350C 3 speed trans going in it. I'm thinking of putting on a Jet Performance stage 2 Quadra Jet from Summit and a factory aluminum intake. Probably do a stock air cleaner with the duct that goes to the core support. Will buy new white letter tires for the N90 SS aluminum wheels. Plan on rebuilding the front suspension and replacing all the brake parts. I just got the body set on the chassis and came in for lunch. Pics of when it got here and the parts car that came with it.

    Anyone ever suggest you seem to be easily distracted?

    Guys, I need a radio surround dash panel. I believe it is 85 only. It is brushed gray/black NOT woodgrain. Might even take one if somebodys cut it out for a cd player. Looks like this

    Um, yeah, I may have a serious problem o_O I bought another SS today (for parts). 88,000 original mile car. It's crashed but everythings on the engine even the smog stuff. That's a rarity around here :rofl:

    Is this why there are none of these around OKC...because they're all in the Tulsa area?

    There were a couple recently, but nowhere as decent as the last couple you acquired.

    So I called Rob at Dixie this morning and got some parts coming. Getting the 88 T top car today kinda changes my engine plans. I may use the HO 305 and 2004R in this 85. Tomorrow, I'm going to see if the 88 will start. It's been sitting since 04. No luck finding the 85 only radio surround so going to get some black brushed vinyl and cover all the stuff. I have a woodgrain surround so I'll paint it SEM landau black then put the vinyl inlay on. This way it will still look stock. I think it's neat being a one year only thing and want that detail to stay. I also kinda made an offer on a SS aerocoupe today. We both have to think it over tonight though
