Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Well "Life" keeps happening & I refuse to borrow $ to get this thing
any further than it is. At best, she makes a few events this year in
her underwear. (Primer) I still need my Doors and the Nose aligned.
I have the interior, but I also need that all covered. I need the 1/2
Top reworked so that it is usable, and of course the biggie. (Paint)

I have stuff on Craigslist and Ebay trying to raise the $ for all the
minor stuff and was hoping by Spring to just need Paint. Going to
try and have a planned "Shop" day sometime in May. (I'm hoping)

I know what you mean Craig. Both of mine sit for time & funds at the moment. But our rides will go again!

Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Guess I need to update this thread. I took here down to CTC in October
and the Old Girl did pretty well considering I had less than 20 road miles
on her since the "Resto Mod" was completed. Interior is all done, except
for putting things in that I'll have to remove for the Painter. Half Top is
over at my Body guy getting worked on at some point. I ditched glass
windshield cowl in pic for a OEM radio delete cause it fits better. I also
recently scored an older (Brand New, Never Used) Early SBC 1000 CFM
Holley MPFI Pro-Jection 2, so I'll be ditching the Carb over the Holidays.

She is still lacking a paint job, no money left for that, but that's all !!!!!

Looks like they put you in the SUV section of the show, hopefully you placed higher than that Buick thingy sitting beside you!

Re: Project: "Square Corvette"

Bill,

She's getting there, bit off more than I could chew.

Stevo,

Runs awesome, but she still needs some minor tuning.

MSG,

It wasn't entered, but snagged a covered parking
spot to keep her out of the sun most of the day.
