    Here are some pics of some of the stuff I put on the car. SPC adjustable upper control arms, big sway bar from Custom Works Performance. I still have the rear adjustable one to install. I also put on C5 big brakes with 4th gen Camaro calipers.

    I put my moser engineering diff cover on. I tried putting a Spartan locker in my carrier but that was a big fail. I will need to revisit that later. I ground the mud out of the bad dent on the tail light panel. I pulled the dent and applied some more filler. It is way less than before. Haha I also finished the paint/blend from the rust spot by the back window.

    I already got the condenser and drier installed for the vintage air. Now to do the interior stuff. I didn't like the silicone elbow on the air inlet so I made it all steel. I also did the rocker trunion upgrade so I wouldn't have to have that annoyance.

    I couldn't get all the pieces to fit in the carrier. It is like the piece for the RH side gear locking ring needs another quarter inch of material machined off of it for it to slide past the axle to get it in place. I fought it long enough so I put it back to a peg leg and threw the cover on so I could move on.

    I happened to find some pics of my first 2nd gen I ever had. I still miss that car! 1972 RS 350 car. It had several different engine and trans combos in it over the years. The last was a 550hp 396/TH400. The one before that was a burly 482 that had aluminum rods and made 850hp. It had a not so good ending.

    The first pic is where it sat when I first bought it in around 1999. The last 2 are right before I tore it apart to trade it for Corvette parts.....

    I had a M21 behind it and I still don't know for sure what happened. All I know is, it was fun while it lasted and it happened fast. I was racing a Supra that the kid thought was the fastest thing around. (Of course this was in Mexico City...) The light turned green, I left in 2nd like I always did, nailed 3rd, he was no where close, put it in 4th and kaboom!!!!! I was driving over pieces, pieces smashed into the hood, but luckily nothing came through the firewall. I hit the tach recall and it went to the stop. As in past 10k rpm. As I watched the Supra drive off I saw these weird lights in my side mirror. Yep, busted... Anyway, I still think the M21 blew up, the engine over revved and grenaded. The cam was broke in 3 pieces, one head was broken, it broke the intake, the crank was broke. I saved the valve covers and nothing else. That was the only BBC I had with aluminum heads, ever. I saved a long time to get that thing running but I should have waited and put a Doug Nash 4 speed in it. The car got impounded that night too. The car got a nice retirement by the judge. I got the car back with the stipulation that it be torn apart and not put back on the street the way it was. He even sent the sheriff to where I worked and had my boss at the time sign a release form. That obviously ended my Mexico City days.

    My girl friend at the time, wife now, didn't really believ the story until she met my boss and friend/work partner. Chris had a 68 Camaro with a 427 that had 10:1 compression and a 671 on it. He traded that car for a 83 Chevy that had a 12" lift and 44s. He too now has another 68 camaro. Oddly enough it has a 396 SBC and a 671 but tubbed and bad azz. Haha

    my 68 before and after loved that car. Only got stopped once by the police nd that was because he wanted to see it. As you can see in the before shot my dog didn't care for it at all.
