1972 Monte Carlo 402 BBC Th 400 12 Bolt, Stainless dual exh.
Installed a 454 and 4000 stall converter. Have car 10 years.
The boats have really distracted me from finishing it. I have 2 Big Block boats, and after I sell the one I've been getting ready, I'm gonna try to finish the car. It's a factory Big Block car. I have most of the parts incl. much new old stock trim etc. After the car is mint I'll put the original motor back in it. I had the car wet sanded and the body perfect 4 years ago, I mixed all the paint and started spraying and realized that the gun was dripping and spitting. Not Knowing when I was going to be off from work again I kept spraying just to get some paint on the car, and to protect it. I had lent the gun to a friend to paint his 76 Cloned 72 Camaro, and he hadn't cleaned it properly
I'm gonna try to finish the restoration this summer, But it's gonna be tough to keep me out of the 242 Formula with the new motor. My 2 cents, Big Block Billy

We also owned a '97 30th Ann Z28 convertible. Didn't realize only 168 were made. Ours had white spoke rims instead of the polished. It was also the #2 Brickyard 400 Pacecar with all the decals that was registered to Tony George (Indianapolis Speedway Pres.) for that month. I still have the Brickyard license plate from it. It was fun at 1st to drive, but wife didn't like it. She traded it for a new BMW within a year. On her 3rd one now, think shes hooked.

My pride is my 20k mile '84 Vette. Bought it with 16k miles when 11 months old. Does oil thicken in 20 yrs?
