About “Christine”

this is my first project car, bought it off my dads friend. I had been around this car my whole life but never noticed it until I got into cars.

About “Discomaro”

I saw the car at a car lot next to Autozone. I went and looked at it, and fell in love with what I saw, yes it needed a lot of work, but I had to have this car. I asked the owner how much he wanted it for, he said $3,800, so I asked him if he would make a payment plan, and that he would keep the car until I have paid it off. He said no, so right after I went to the bank to see about getting a loan for the car, that took about 3 days. I was approved for the loan, got the check and took it to the owner, when I got there before I told him I got a loan, he said he would make a payment plan, I was a bit aggravated, but I told him I got a loan. He gladly signed the title over and the car was mine! I was so happy, I took it to my work place and showed every one my new car, every one liked it. I took it home, and my mom dad and sister liked it, but my ex was pissed, but I think that's because my car is better looking than his, and because I didn't tell him or anyone else I was getting the car. But here I am now with one of my dream cars. One day I hope to get a '63 Split Window Corvette. When I brought the car home, it was backfiring, shooting flames out of the carburetor, and flooding out. I figured out that the carb was too big for the motor, so i traded someone for a smaller carb. She runs better, but I am in the process of restoring her. When I am done it will be a restored Motion Lt-Z which is my own creation. I would like to put a 4 speed in the car, but i have to find one. I will put a 350 in the car, and rear end gears will more than likely be bumped up to 3:55's. The interior will be the same just all new. It will have Z28 fenders, Motion hood and Motion stripe.The motor I am looking at getting (possably) will be pulled out of a 57 Bel Air, the motor is originally out of a 72 Chevelle...Whats weird though, I never thought this would be a dream car for me. I had never seen one up until i saw it sitting at the car lot day after day. I almost bought another one, same year but it was black, had a 350, and a manual trans. I went to the bank to get money and the day I was approved fro the loan...It sold. I was so disappointed!

 

Specs for “Christine”

pontiac 400 6.6 litre

Specs for “Discomaro”

The car currently has a 305 that has been slightly rebuilt. Isky cam, Weiand Intake, Edelbrock carb, and hedders (not sure of the brand). We swapped out the motor with this 305, it is out of roughly a 87 year model camaro it is a 305 H.O. I do plan on changing the cam, I found the perfect cam. Comp Cam Extreme. We got the motor in the car and fired her up, and needless to say, I hate the way it sounds now. Its too quiet and sounds like a stock pick up truck. It has a TH350 transmission out of a 72 motor home, and has the stock rear end w/2:41 gears.
