This ought to break up the miles of hoodage... Give it some character ..make it look Fast...
Probably gain 80 HP just adding..And reduce fuel mileage by 2 gallon...ahahahaa
Probably only add 79 HP until the old girl gets used to having a Ford copy scoop up there...

Shaker or don't do it!

Or just trade it/sell it.
Looking it over alot closer last night ..
Rear quarters have been done. very well though. Cant even hardly tell.
Was a bit nervous as I know their is body filler in rear quarters.

Least it didn't have cardboard crammed behind and Bondo slapped over them..
I bought a 65 Impala once like that. The Rocker panels had to be a can each and completely formed from the stuff...

I'm looking forward to this weekend to get out sand and probably get most the body back in new primer..
Ive a few choices...
Flat/satin white..with blue SS stripes
or
Flat/satin Black with long wisp Traditional flames.( Yellow to Orange & Red)
Kinda a rough Rat Rod theme..
For interior..Probably picking up some vinal spray paint and go all Blue for white car...Or all black for Black car..
All kind of depends on what color it goes.

Some ankle burner side pipes from the era would be sweet too..
A friend had a set many years ago...might hit him up and see if he still has them.

I may spend the money on a double snorkel hood ( Aftermarket )
Or some sort of scoop any how....

Here is a GT37...Love the colors and looks.. Hood has a shaker...
Be fun fun to mess with people ..
Paint it like that..but weather it to look like a survivor barn find...hehehehee.
Be fun and stand out from a crowd.


Holey crap bud....that looks awesome...! Will love to see you turn it into something like this...!

Hey! I have the same Leman's pics! Love that car and would do it almost the same minus the side stripes and quarter scoops. There's one around here in dark metallic grey with matching steelies, T/A shaker and a wicked big block stroker for power. No stickers or anything, just the basics for trim. Very subdued on the outside. Not so sleeper-ish though once it fires up!
I Had a 68 SS396 4spd Chevelle that I really enjoyed and would enjoy this just as much me thinks.

If you do think of selling it, keep me in mind. I may be very interested

Well get ready my friend.. Ive decided on a paint job...100 %
The twist though will be to make it look like a Barn find....hehehheeeee
Going this route..But will do a patina on it to make it look old...
Hehehehee crazy I know... 20 foot rule will apply..
But ought to snap heads.
The goal is to mess with your brain...but on a budget..and most of all..
Have fun,
The goal.....


Going to be interesting to make it look barn kept old, but In decent shape..
Hang on to yer chairs fellers.

I have an importer/carrier at my disposal. I don't drive to pick up cars anymore. Getting smarter in my old age
Would be nice to have something different. Crazy amount of Chevelles and Camaro's here. Would be nice to have something different. There are a few Judges of that vintage and only the one Lemans that I've seen. It seems...lonely.

Looks cool.

It's a 79 Pontiac firebird trans am....aka screaming chicken....lol. Made by a company called Taiyo. Runs on 4 AAAs and a 9v in the car as well as a 9v in the transmitter.

I think it's 1/18 scale.... It's got 2 speeds, working headlights with real rubber tires.... I think those were cutting edge back in 1982 when I bought it...lol !

I should be going back downstate on my day off next week so will swing by the PO Box company and pick it up...will post up some pics when I do...!
