About

I fell in love with this car in my grandfather's garage. I practically begged for it my entire life, tried to buy it and everything. Then, on the day I graduated, she became mine =)

Been through some troubles. The main one being it got broken into and the interior and some outside trim was all destroyed. But 2 months later and I brought her back!

Now it's on to the fun stuff =)

Specs

Factory 305 H.O. SBC with 33,000 miles on her.
Stock 4BBL Q-jet
3.83 open rear



Never been on the track, but I'm guessing I'd pull low 17.00's?

Factory Options

Air Conditioning
Power Steering
Power Windows
Power Locks
Power Trunk Release
Cruise Control
AM/FM Radio (Replaced with Headunit)

Custom trunk

I just recently got about 80% of the trunk refabricated, started with stripping and relaying new rubberized coating, full carpet, hand made custom sub box mounted to a front panel, all wires hidden. Full Kicker Audio =) Wires ran for a second amplifier to boost cab speakers as well!

Progress!

So I took a stab at it again now that it was good weather and a day off. I pulled everything out, went back to bare. I decided to strip out all the old adhesive and respray the trunk with a rubberized coating to give it that "just off the lot" look where...

Box built =)
