    I'd take that and the only thing I'd change is go to a low spoiler in the rear. I like the bigger Cragar's too.

    I like the low spoiler better also, and the low one is correct for the 71 if my research is right. I've always been stuck on the Z28 wheels but I like the Cragars also.

    Well, if you really want to get carried away on the '71....

    I think you should just forget about your chrome bumper Camaro and carry on with the rubber bumper one. My trailer is hooked up so just let me know. Shoot, I'd even be saving you all those engine decision hassles you have been having.

    Your quite the salesman It's not as stressful any more because I'm pretty set on building a 383 for it . It doesn't seat enough for your family anyway

    The guy dropped off my 350 vortec and shorty headers that I got off of Facebook for $200. He wanted to deliver it so I didn't argue. I gave him $75 for his time and gas cause I have to sleep at night. I may pop the heads off it when the time comes to to check things out . I can have the valve guides cut down then too for more cam lift if necessary. I think the hood is going to get closed on the Z28 though, I got other irons in the fire right now and I'm sick of spending money for awhile

    The thing is pretty sweet, I love the blue. I'm not even sure what the specs are ona LS 7 are let alone a destroked one. I'm sure it's faster than anything I'll ever have on my yard though LOL

    We brought in the Z28 for Christian to mess around with. He is constantly asking me how much I'll sell it for if he is able to buy it some day. I keep telling him He'll be able to afford it, he is in love with this car. My plan is to give him the keys to it if he graduates High School. He deserves something if he keeps trying as hard as he is vs his older brothers attitude about school I had him take out the seat so we could fix some broken frame work poking through the cushion and remove the door guard strips that were half falling off. It looks better without them anyway.

    Feeding his interest, and getting him engaged and using the tools is a great thing! Kudo's to you for making the effort, and recognizing his efforts in his school work, too. Good job, Dad!

    Thanks Roger, watching Mike P and Cade was a pusher for me to do something like he's doing for Cade. Christian is not a wrench guy but I'll see if I can keep him busy polishing and mild mechanic work.

    It's great to see Seth. I've seen that stare Christian has a time or two on Cade.

    Very cool and I'm glad he took a liking to it. That should help motivate him. Nothing is better than pulling into your high school parking lot with a sweet ride!
