    I picked up this car labor day weekend. I had been looking for the right second gen for a while, but life and 1st gens kept me busy. After building everyone else's cars for a long time, I decided it was time to build one for me. Working 50 to 60 hrs a week hampers progress, but at the same time makes the resources available to get this done at a reasonable pace. I picked up the roller with the 4-link and most of the cage work done. It's mild steel so I know I can't go quicker than 7.50. Build will basically be a street legal race car. I'll update as time allows, but here's the progress for the month. 20170904_132826_resized.jpg 20170904_121926_resized.jpg IMG_1989.jpg IMG_1967.jpg IMG_1979.jpg

    I ordered some 90 degree v band to T4 adapters, not liking the placement as it will cause some issues with the rollcage. The placement would also require radiator relocation. Looks like I'm going to go with some straight adapters, and may have to do some more fab work. I think its time to get rid of my dormant 67 Camaro project and buy some more equipment. I hate borrowing the TIG welder since it doesn't fit too well in my Suburban.
