And build a smokemup project car. First lets decide what the intended use and goals are for the car. Then what platform to start with> I am leaning toward early model for smog and cost reasons but nothing is set in stone. Right now I have in my inventory of candidates a 1967 camaro that is completely didassembled for restoration, a 1967 Impalla convertable with a 396 t-400 and 12 bolt that is a complete car but needs total restoration. 1970 vette in the same condition as the impala, and another 70 elcamino ss BB car thgat has a rebuilt 427 but needs a total cosmetic resto. I have a number of finished cars also and would even consider buying somthing completely different to build. So lets put our collective thought in on this and come up with somthing outrageous, and functional for whatever the intended use is going to be.

my vote is for the El Camino or Impala. how is this supposed to work being a SMOKEmUP project car ? are you just looking for suggestions or parts donations or both ? i like the idea, im just not sure i understand what you have in mind.

No parts, just money please LOL. JK actually I would be funding the project. So come up with the coolest most outrageous, and cost concious you can think of. I personally think it needs twins or a huffer,or 700+ CI if normally asperated, but with twins(turbos) it could actually get good milage.

I sure would like to see the 70 vette with a LS2 6.0 and an old style lenco/Liberty trans to bang through the gears with. Decent power, good mileage, pleasant to drive. What more would you want. I also forgot, and it's a two seater for you and your chick. Sorry no room for the kids Razz .

Since The paint and body work will be done in house also, and the vette body is rough, maybe a radical 2009 Zo6 custom hand made body with the LS2 for power. Sounds expensive though.

A little up date on this post. I ended up finding a really original 69 vette with every factory option and a 300 horse small block/t-400. It is a Black on Black leather car. I just painted it, all of the exterior trim and chrome is new, and I have all the engine and bracket parts to make it a Big Block clone. The engine is a .070 over 454 with 4 bolt mains, I bought a new forged stroker kit for it so it will be 498 inches with about 10.5 to 1. I had a set of 990 square port heads rebuilt, and I have the correct corvette intake for the heads that will clear the factory BB hood (I located a 427 hood and painted it also) I plan on running a retro fit hyd. roller cam, cam specs to be determined (any ideas?) There is a 435 horse tri power set up on E-Bay right now, and I would love to put that baby on there. I am trying to make the car and engine look original, but have a total thumper, and that tri power would be the ultimate crown for this project. Or should I leave a small block in it and fly Clay out here to set up some twins for it?
