Haha, yes. I would love to be able to drive it around on the lodge this Sunday to make sure everything is tip top. Will be running it with a v6 1.2 lt engine to start off with, untill I have enough pennies to buy a lovely 302 Camaro V8.

I'm not sure how you guys feel about double posts on the forum, but I thought I'd provide a small little update. We've started rebuilding a Nissan 1.5 straight 4 that was laying around here on the lodge as an interim motor, until I can afford a 302 Chev Camaro v8 5L.

Haha, thanx man! Let's just hope it runs, testing it tonight after work, and if it runs. I'll be strapping it to the car :P, and then it's just a matter of getting every last drop of power out of it, and testing it over the weekend (would love to throw some donuts with it on my birthday at least :lol: ) and then start sorting out the previous owners messes, like welding the chairs to the car etc.
