When your done you will grace us with the mandatory idling video I hope.

I will have to borrow a GoPro from a friend and figure out how to post it.

I started pricing "shelf cams", and the cost is getting up there. I am going to call Chris Straub Friday and see what he can get me for similar money.

It is amazing how dirty these things get just sitting there. I and vacuuming in the trunk and interior and underneath. Then lay under it with a bucket of water and a rag. Wow cobwebs out the wazoo.
I can only imagine one day getting caught out in the rain. Take weeks to clean it.

My buddy called yesterday come over and help him take his hood off. He is putting another set of heads on. He has had a set of reworked heads that are ported and 2.02 new valves. So we shot the bull and tinkered taking it apart.

It isn't the prettiest car but everything works. 4 speed posi. But take into account he paid 200 bucks for it. Has less than 500 bucks total in it. And has driven it everyday for 30 years. He is a notorious slacker. He paid me 3 years ago to do the bodywork and paint it. Just to lazy to let me do it. He just wants to drive it.

He gave me 2 muncie 4 speeds and the shifter for mine in exchange for the verbal agreement i would do it, But he is my buddy I would have done it for free and he knows it. Just leave it at my house for the bodywork a while, And here lies the problem. He can't drive it anytime he wants with it sitting in the garage here LOL.

If he ever gets around to letting me do it. It will be blue with white stripes.

Finally got the Chevelle out for the second time this summer and took it down to the coast for a car show. Great weather and a fun show. Show was right on the bay.



New truck worked great also.


Car at the show. They put me up front.


Always fun to beat the Mopar's

Cars make you do strange things. I detailed the chev 2 days ago. Now I did the interior floor that be under carpet. So Far I have spent 3 hours laying undr it and scrubbing things nobody will ever see. I bet there bondo dust under there from 7 years ago. Taking a coffee break then back under there.
I never in my life thought I would lay under a car for hours washing it. I must be getting teched with age.

For the longest time every time I did a burnout in my Chevelle and it started wheel hopping I would have a line of sand under the dash and in my shoes from when the car was sandblasted 20 years ago. No more sand now

So you've done enough burnouts to get all the sand out of the dash? You ever get your wheel hop problem figured out?

I have forgotten to mention that I picked up some paint for the 72'. Going back with code 26 Mulsane Blue. Also making the switch from ppg to matrix.
