    Well now my car blew the motor which totally sucks. So now I am going to have to come up with something better like a front stub swap then a rear end upgrade as well. Or just sell it and get something better that's already finished.

    Look for a 70's Dart/Duster w/318,340,360 combo and you've got most of what 'ya need.

    Well I'm tearing the head off this week to see if it's just a gasket problem. Hopefully that will fix it otherwise it's scrap in my eyes. Found a couple cool old trucks for sale in my area maybe I can pick one of those up instead of keeping my car.. oh well who knows

    Well I pulled the head off and I discovered I have a hole in a piston as well as a blown head gasket so now I'm stuck I've never rebuilt a motor before but guess I'm taking a crash course into doing it.

    Welcome from a Pekin reject. Retired and ran outta town eighteen years ago today. Bought a 1950 Buick from a guy who used to live where the old country grade school was east of town.
    You can rebuild that engine. I rebuilt my 49 Dodge engine in 1958 when I was 19 and I didn't know crap. It ran all over central Illinois till I traded it several years later.

    You Illinois guys, Pekin has a decent downtown car/bike show sometime at end of July. We'll be there.
