    Wow, you just found a 4 barrel intake for free? Lucky you, they usually are a bit pricey.

    Let me know if you want to replace the tin for the radiused wheel wells. I actually have the matching cutouts.

    i altered the stock generator bracket and got a new belt to fit the new length. car runs great and has a lot more power with the 4bbl. its getting better mileage too

    i also squirted the bottom half of the car yesterday. got some work to do to the roof before i squirt it but for now its sooo much better then how it was. those fender spears still need to come off!!

    put in some elbow grease a while ago to get it looking decent. the rusty bumpers were driving me mad. round 1 goes to me but ive still got a lot more work to get that rust gone

    i want to get the whites shaved to be wider, need some glass and stuff as well. rear end is leaking a bit...being unemployed sucks cause i dont have money to toss around at the car, what little it was in the first place haha

    heres some pics

    Hi Guys, nice post. I own a 55 wagon and the rear lenses are hard to find, one of the is badly broken. I'm thinking of putting 55 chevy tailights eventhough I don't like the idea very much.

    Hey what about the tailgate letters? I bought a set of hood/trunk letters just to discover they won't fit on the tail gate, they have thick flat pins on the back.

    Have you find a solution?
