About

My Chevy currently has metalflake electric blue paint on the body and is “vanilla milkshake” above the belt. It has the original 216 straight six right now. The interior is decent, I’ve added some mexican blankets and a shrunken head (hanging from the rearview mirror) to give it some personality.2 winters ago, I added the sunvisor and rechromed the bumpers myself at a buddies chrome shop. Last winter, I bought a complete lowering kit from Jamco Suspension and lowered the car 3 inches all the way around. Next winter, I’m thinking about a split manifold, dual exhaust, and dual carbs. I would also like to eventually put some wide whitewall on her.
