73 Chev SS

Bought the green beast last year May,and have been slowly getting it roadworthy...it already had the arches and green paint job when bought...at least the interior is original.

Thanks guys,yes the green...driving her around is not for the shy and retiring types,my daughter thinks its very uncool-12 year olds,go figure...,hehe :D.

It amazes me how easily it lights up those 275 rear tyres,with the limited slip diff,and stock 308/4spd combination,unintentionally off course... :twisted:

That SS is really neat Justin.

I'm sure the colour has grown on you.

Justin if it had a 308 I suppose you got a 4-speed manual box in it?
