    This is the cool part. Me and my then girlfriend put in about $20 in a raffle for this motor at a local car show.... and she won it. I paid her $40 for it. It is a '96 camaro LT1 Stroker motor. They removed the fuel injection and carbed it.

    This is the latest update pic of the outside. I will eventually paint the roof and bed side spears in white metal flake.

    I am just about done with the wiring. I am trying to get it done in time for the roundup.

    The gas pedal I made out of a '50's Ludwig bass drum pedal.

    I will post more pics as I take them, but I have become lazy with picture taking.

    Drag'n '59, looking killer! It's great to see it's coming along. Now I have to start figuring out how the hell to get mine looking less like a rat rod (body work process).

    Thanks, I am doing a 55 with a fleetside bed and with a notch, and relocating the gas tank to the back I am curious if the cross bars for the bed will all get used where they are intended to be used.
