Car is running great in the garage, we just got 6 inches of snow again, but I'm a couple grand away from driving it.

dvst8r tracked me down VIA ls1tech, hooked me up with a link.

Now I'd just like to get my join date and my post count corrected to my old username. This one is more fitting now.

Thanks guys! Really appreciate you guys wanting to see the car :)

It could stop last year, had 12" rotors all around. But it was Camaro rear calipers with Circle track sprint car calipers up front. Kinda pieced together setup. 1976 impala rotor/hubs. So this way I can replace the rotor without touching the hubs, over the counter parts from GM, and a solid setup. I also did a junkyard hydraboost setup years ago on the car, still on it and working awesome. No vaccum bullshit to worry about.

Yes the car is a 72 with 71 park lights. I dislike the solid amber park lights.


Check at the top I added a spec list.
