What's Old is New Again

Postby coe » Wed Jan 17, 2018 12:59 pm

Hey all! Was a member a couple of years ago but had to take a bit of time away from the automotive world for a while, but I am back now. Didn't post a lot back then but read A LOT! Still have the same project car that is being resurrected (blown altered) and even added a project '70 Chevelle that my youngest and I are going to restore/mod. Glad to be back! Look forward to picking ya'lls brains.

Keith,

The altered is a 125" chassis with a late 80's Corvette funnycar body, 3-spd Lenco with a 3-disc 10" Ram clutch, and Strange top loader rear.
Going to replace the funnycar body with a '48 Fiat Outlaw coupe body. My plan for the engine is a mild (1000-1200 HP)
blown BBC on alcohol. Bought a 454 block, crank and heads but now it looks like they will end up in the Chevelle, so will be needing
to start over again with the engine.

The '70 Chevelle is a 6-cyl, auto, Malibu that is a basket case...but mostly all there. Going to clone/mod it as an SS (454, 4-spd). I bought
this for my 11-year old son (older son and daughter have no interest in cars) so that he will have a cool car when he hits high school. Told
him he only gets it if he puts work into it. So far he has.

These will be long term projects...just a poor engineer...MY priority is the altered, but my wife and son say the Chevelle. We all know who will win that one!

Before anything is started I need to put my '99 Jeep TJ back together. A drunk driver smashed into it while it was parked in front of the house. Bent
the control arms and perches. Bought replacements and need to weld them in, do some bodywork and paint it.

Also getting ready to order a 2-post lift for my new garage addition. Still researching that. Any one have any recommendations?

What's the plan for the funny car body could probably find you a home.
