    I havent posted here much mostly just surf the site, I see alot of 53-54 chev stuff so heres my project. Ive had this car scince high school and its had a few mods, I finished it in 1990 and smoked the mill in late 93 ( drove every day for that time and the acrylic lacquar and murano pearl did not like the sun) so this time its gonna be green. Ive been bustin my nuts for the last year on it (to bad it took so long to get motivated)suspension is almost complete 6 inch steped subframe, 9 inch, large c notch,new driveline tunnel etc. painted the firewall,dash,colum and wheels a couple of weeks ago and rolled it outside today for the first time in over 15years. Just finished a new 235 rebuild for it and as soon as its wired and the loud pedal works a haircuts gonna happen.
