Default New shop project

Picked this up because I just like them. Had one in high school.

1980, 301ci motor,auto

Going to fix the interior with some new seats, head liner, misc parts and a radio.

next will be body mounts,subframe connectors.

Then suspension which I might replace everything or just bushing the stuff, have to see.

Next winter is still up in the air. Either a 402ci LS2 setup with Throttle body to keep scoop or twin turbo 364ci. Still don't know on tranny yet.

Nice i like that. It looks really clean too. Not many build those up so it will be nice to see something different out there!

It's a 20' car. Got it for a decent price and needs work. Most of the stuff it needs I planned on replacing anyways. Suspension ect.

If it was just to keep stock I would of bought one of the $25k one's with less than 40k on them.

My first car in high school was a 1980 Camaro and I bet they were very similar.

Tips are strange looking to me for some reason, not saying it looks bad but, just something I can't put my finger on.
