finally took the first drive around today after over 2 years of bs and jsut under $10,000 later. trans shifted perfect, no overheating or leaks, or any bad news to speak of. all in all it went absolutely perfect and im very excited to atleast make it to a car show or two before the end of the season.

all thats left is peeling off the hp increasing racing stickers, and a friend of mine is giving me the 3.5 inch exhaust off his camaro, hes moving up to 4 inch. after that im going to get some foglights on it, turn signals, and tinted headlight covers so johnny law cant see that my headlights are stickers. oh and also zip-tying a coupe windsheild wipers to it Laughing . besides that, shes as done. spraying it that hot rod semi gloss black next spring. thanks for the help over the past couple years, you guys along with many friends have made getting it done possible.
