1981 Chevrolet Chevette Scooter (Tech Rod)
Last updated Jul 21, 2009
I picked up this well-preserved Grandma's car with 48,000 miles and a blown head gaset.
Out came the original engine... that wasn't in the plans, just in the way :)
The hunt began for a 93-95 Camaro 3.4L 60 degree V6 with SFI and automatic overdrive intact, complete with the entire wiring harness, ECU, and all the various modules.
Assembly is almost complete, and I'll be unleashing this monster on my unsuspecting city soon (evil laugh).
But before that happens the car is being liberally coated in truck bed liner (everywhere), and it's undergoing many upgrades to strengthen up the chassis, increase braking power, and stabilize the ride.
After it's proven itself to be in "daily-driver" status, I'll be painting it metallic graphite grey with black racing stripes like Elenor from Gone in 60 Seconds and I'll be intalling my Car PC setup.
