    88 vette project

     



    Well i'm getting pretty far on my 88 vette project.

    I bought it over a year ago.

    No suspension (front and rear) no bolts, no motor trans --super clean interior

    I belive i've turned (EVERY SINGLE BOLT--TWICE)

    MY car has a fresh 358 with old reworked camel back heads

    flat tops

    isky cam

    holley carb

    350 turbooooo

    dual points

    the cars whole suspenison (front) and (rear) is aluminum and is 3/4 polished (very shiney)

    Thanks

    she was almost dead \\

    THE SECOND OWNER SOLD (my poor cars suspension to a nice 32 owner or something close.

    So when I got it/ she had no suspension.

    I had to sit on the ground for a week or two.....lol

    So I went on a search and found some dude local who had a complete EXTRA front and rear suspension from a 85 corvette.


    He was also in need of a vette hood, so .......

    I traded him my VETTE hood for his extra suspension...front and rear.......lol

    it sounds like a crazy deal---BUT I THINK I WON--on that deal

    He gave me his broke hood in the deal too. (so I had a hood to put on the car in the mean time) super sweet deal.....

    ive since bought a new (used) hood for 500 bucks

    So i paid $500 bucks for my complete suspension with ....and he got a nice hood

    I think we were all happy at the end of the day.


    WHAT MADE THE DEAL SWEET WAS THAT I GOT EVERY SINGLE BOLT AND THE WASHERS
