About

Had been out of the "car thing" for about 10 years up till 2011, having sold all my cars and stuff for them to buy a camper. Then my oldest son decided to buy a "hot rod" and so it began again, the bug bit, and that's all she wrote.

Having been a G-Body lover for as long as I can remember, and owning several Monte's, Regals, and Cutlass' over the years I decided to look for another one. Started out looking for a Malibu, but came across the SS and saw a lot of potential in it, even though the last owner didn't take very good care of it. It was filthy dirty, and had been left under a pine tree, and had a lot of sap on it, that the guy never took care of, but the price was right, and I took it anyway.
After I got it home, the first I did was pull motor and trans, and proceeded to strip the engine compartment of everything, clean, and repaint it. re-gasketed whole motor, cleaned and painted it and added a black GM performance dress up kit. Then put it all back together again, and added headers while I was at it. This took around 2 months to complete. Then as soon as spring hit the car was off to my brother in law to see what we could do with the paint. well after 4 days of wet sanding, buffing, polishing he called and said come check it out, and what you see in the pics is how it turned out. Still needs a new paint job sometime in the future, but looks good for now.

Specs

Has bone stock Goodwrench 350 crate motor, and stock drive train (for now)

5.3 LS, and 4l60e swap planed for next winter.....

Mods

I put Belltech 2 inch drop spindles, new moog springs and KYB shocks on front, 1 inch Hotchkis lowering springs, with KYB shocks on rear.

Really only other after market stuff are the headers, a Hurst Pro-Matic shifter, an Edelbrock 600 cfm carb, and a GM Performance engine dress up kit.
