Now you have to go out and find another car that's not a total pile of garbage under the new shiny paint. So between selling your car and finding another suitable project you lose a year or more. Sometimes it just makes sense to keep what your happy with and modify what makes you happy. jim

Yep, I have already discussed that with them. I will probably do that in the future. They had another Chevelle in the shop that was on the way out, some kind of LS fuel injected engine with a 6 speed in there. It was pretty nice, I am thinking I will upgrade to a more powerful engine and steel bell housing in a couple years.
For now, I just want my car back and to drive it until it needs to go into the shop. Then they will do some paint touch up and upgrade the engine in a couple years.

Thanks, I am really excited about getting her back. No word, but I have so many things going on I live in a perpetual line of waiting for projects to finish. So this is just another thing I am waiting on, this one I get to enjoy personally though!
