Re: It's been a while and it still lives.
Yes those are the original wheels. The paint is new but was on before I bought the car. I bought it originally because it was *probably* better than the car I drove to the junk yard with. Not to say I'm a cheap trailer trash bastard, but my previous car had the transmission pan bolts stripped right out and I was going to pull another transmission out.
Yes I realize I could have repaired the threads, but the garage (who's no longer in the service) did a nice job stretching the pan, stripping the hole and basically making my car leak everything. So I went to get something and came out with something else. End of story.
Since then it was just an MSD ignition box and a 2 barrel carb to replace the VV. It pulls flat 18's with 2.73 gears.
