Haha ya thats my attempt to half sleeper it if you can only see the trunk and not the rest lol. I have a spare trunk lid in the garage and i'm slowly in the process of sanding it down then going to primer it. Take some paint to sherwin williams and have them match it then put it on. I want that luggage rack gone too just running into obstacles.

If you're ever in Austin, or unfortunately in Houston, let me know.

How come? Besides the ridiculous fuel consumption, which can't be worse than the CST10's 3.73s on the highway... Which I used to run between Austin and Houston for months... at 70+ bucks each way... :crazy:

Ya my fuel consumption right now is about 10mpg and I plan on a nice cam in the near future so it will only worsen. But mainly because the car actually doesn't get driven much anymore and it seems everytime I take a long trip something goes wrong. I did just get a new radiator though so cooling wouldn't be an issue(which was the problems the last two long trips)

Well here is more for you
Just got my fog lights in and scored a good deal on them too



They are sitting at a slight angle mainly because it was a mock up, I just need a couple bolts to mount the brackets and it will be set. They aren't wired yet either due to it being a mock up. Hopefully will get them done this weekend

Just realized I never posted pictures of the 1:18 scale i'm building to match the car.


Even have scale traction bars and fire extinguisher

Looking good, I plan on building a 1:24/25 scale version of my truck. Kinda hard to find all of the parts I need for it, like the rims, hood & other odds & ends. lol

I have found some of the stuff I need, but not all of it.

I've got most of the little ends figured out. I found out the starsky and hutch torino had mags wheels just like mine so i plan on buying that model and putting the wheels on this one. Just need to figured out how to make the hood smooth and its basically done.

Nice. Make sure your model comes equipped with a luggage rack.

Haha I was actually going to start making one out of paper clip and see how it turned out, however the model still has a pretty good ways to go and by then i'm hoping my rack will be gone. I got a quote from the bodyshop the other day on painting my other trunk lid.

Thought about it but I have high beams to brighten it. Plus with the fog lights lit up it gets pretty bright now so I have a couple other plans im going to try to do. Not a bad idea though for later

Well one of the biggest updates i've posted on here. . .






Newly purchased 351W, Took a 3 hour trip to college station to get it and its well worth it. Guy said it was rebuilt but then change of plans and never got installed so he decided to sell. I have yet to check the block casting number due to the fact that its still sitting on that tire. But looks very clean and I figure some paint on the oil pan and it will look fine.
