Well, here goes. Took me 4 years (at least) to get up the gumption to sell my '68 Chevelle. But now that it's done and I have the cash in hand, it's time to rebuild my '78 Z28 from high school.

I rebuilt the engine with my dad and it has run faithfully ever since. Even though I've barely put 1000 miles on it each year since I graduated from college, it still starts and runs the same as it ever did. Good ol' Rochester Quadrajet. Even after sitting all winter, it will start on the third try every time. IMG_1413 by pfz28, on Flickr I had it painted in the summer of 1987. It was black cherry - black underneath candy apple red. Hard to explain, but the effect was blacker than black until the sun hit it. As it sat outside over the years, the paint deteriorated. It was actually still pretty good up until about 10 years ago, then it really fell apart. 78ZSide by pfz28, on Flickr So, it will again be black cherry when I get done. Now Mazda has a factory color that's close enough to use this time around. 78ZGlint by pfz28, on Flickr More pics later. Wish me luck, I'll need it.
