Congrat's on the garage, they are never big enough so make sure you build it so you can add on later. Making it tall enough for a lift later on is not that much more than standard height. I just love spending your money!
It's been too long. I need to come see you!

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

Come on over, I am here most of the time. Finishing up my Vega wagon for the HotRod Power Tour in June. Still lots to do.

I wanted to make a half cab that you could remove and fit under a cover in the back.

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

I guess I better get this rig going. My wife says the only way I can keep all these classic vehicles is to let her use this as her daily driver. This was going to be my hotrod 383 4 speed Muncie posi sleeper. I guess it may turn out to stay the way it is... I still need to find a dang hood though. I had a few deals but they always fall thru.

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

Well this thing may yet again take another turn. I just picked up a 1999 Trans Am with a 5.7 LS1 and a T56 6 Speed. So that and a 3.73 posi could be a blast. I found a free hood but it will need some work of course. What's a little work?

Sounds like a fun ride!

I am in the middle of putting a warmed over 5.3 in the Blazer. Along with a new wiring Ron Francis harness. I have installed quite a few wiring harnesses but none as nice as this one!

Drop by sometime!

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

Oh My! I will have to! How much are we talking for this harness? No Jimmy?

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

Ron Francis wiring harness I got along with a bunch of other stuff years ago and just now using it.
I am using a FiTech port injected system for the 5.3.
I sold the Jimmy.
58 Belair?

Re: 72 2wd project "No Daggum Money"

Yeah a 58 Bel Air My mom just up and gave me. 348 2 speed powerglide. Real nice car. Just got a new fuel tank for it as the old one is full of "something". Drove the 1999 Trans Am Donor home last night. 5.7 T56 Six speed. Should be a bunch of fun til I put the drive train in the Blazer.
