Daily Driver til I die

This has been my daily driver since 1994. It had a 2-year span with my little bro, then I got it back and rebuilt it again. It is all original with 249,000 miles on the 2.8/ 4speed man, rebuilt to gm specs at 211,000. It sat in storage throughout my military career, so that's why mileage is low.

I painted it last summer in a Votech night class. New GM quarterpanels, Goodmark CI Hood, 2" bell tech spindles and springs, 2" blocks in rear. Can't decide on interior - cloth or vinhyl due to daily driver status with two kids.

I'd like to eventually put 17" wheels and tires (chrome chevy ralley's) and a new stereo system with DVD players in it. I planned on installing a V8, but will save that money for the numerous 67-72s I have (see signature)

Here's some pics throughout the various stages:

Re: Daily Driver til I die

Nice looking ride. We where going to restore our '92 Olds Bravada this fall as the truck is mint except for some blisters popping up. I wanted to put a cowl hood on it as well. I always wanted to get a two door like yours but the wife likes the 4 door, I am glad we went that way now with the baby.

Hell yeah, 2 doors look better, but putting my girls in the back seat sucks.

Re: Daily Driver til I die

Here is a picture of the Bravada before I liquid glassed it. My company truck is an extend a cab without the 4 door option. It is a pain to get Ryan in and out, but hey I don't pay for the gas so it is all good.
