    Well here it goes , this is my personal car i have been building for the past 3 years , it kinda had to work on it since i have been building hot rods and custom cars for everyone else over the last 6 years. I wanted to build a driver / familey car and something that shows off some of my metal work skills , the motor is a 1985 chevy 292 , with a 62 chevy truck bell housing and a 86 t5 trans, the carbs are su 's and so far the body has been channeled 2 inches , everything in the engine comp smoothed out and filled , a lot of had made parts here , the hood tilted forward i like to be different and this deffently shows it i usually dont say much on here because im just a quiet guy but after workin on it the past weekend and how its turning out i fugared its time for everyone else to see it .

    Excellent build so far. I like the use of the 292, you'll like the torque and it will pull that wagon right around. Keep posting your progress.
