About “Shit-vette”

Got it for $100. A 4.3 v-6 coming soon.
Well I had a 4.3 in a full size chevy pick up for the engine swap. But before that swap took place some cool guy on a bike T-boned me when I was turning and totaled the car out. Now that truck is my full time driver. Well I got 500 bucks for it.

About “Shoebox”

Completely rebuilt 55 Chevy turned into a Drag Car.

I've had the car for two seasons, which this past season decided to bump down to prostreet, and wanted to go with an all motor combination - 632. But I might go with a 555 w/ nitrous or 555 w/ twin turbos.
