    hey everyone-i know i haven't written in awhile, but progress has been slow. i am still not too crazy about that HAMB'ster name. anyways-progress on the 47 chevy has picked up slightly with my bro moving back to town. the 496 big block is being built. the axels just came in and more mock-up on the chassis has started. sorry i don't have any pics, we just got a new scanner, so hopefully i will have some soon.-fleet

    Emilio, the name is kind of stupid anyway, just call it fleetmaster's coupe or whatever you want. Seriously guys, Emilio's been doing what he can on his car, but being only 15 and not knowing how to do alot has slowed him down. I've been helping him when I have time and he's not busy. Now his brother's back in town, so we'll get it on the road hopefully by spring. The kid turns 16 this weekend, so I'm sure he'll be pushing us to work on it. Thanks again to everyone on the HAMB who passed parts on to him. I can tell you he greatly appreciates it.

    Did you choose that 2004R tranny or is that just what you have available? I not sure that's 496 big block material.

    Rand Man, he chose to use that tranny after talking to some local guys who run them in their blown chevelles. The 200 can be built to handle the power and it's got a small package to fit in the car.

    wayfarer is right about the tranny-i will stick by it, saying its highly under-estimated-u get an overdrive, plus a tranny that can handle some power. they also arent super expensive to pick up in a junkyard.
