It's true, but I couldn't justify spending more money to make it so the wife couldn't drive it (which wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if I didn't occasionally need her as a designated driver :beers: )keithb said:yeah b/c well all know real cars have a manual trany
'69 malibu in my sig. I'm building a whole new chassis for it, and swapping the body over to this chassis when it's completed. I've been posting my progress in the "Pro Touring" section herekeithb said:so what car are you putting it in
Corvelle. Yea, that's what mine is...Bow_Tied said:no, no, no - it is a Corvelle. Big difference.
Yup, '95 Caprice LT1 (not really corvette, but it looks so much "cleaner" with those covers). I'm figuring I'll get about 19-20mpg if I use my 4.10 rear, or 22-24mpg if I use the 3.08 rear.Thad said:Thats an LT1 right ?
Since the rise in gas prices, I'd really thought about an LT1 6 speed swap, into the 72 moving the 502 to the 68.
Figure then mileage wouldn't be a factor of the "Do I drive a Chevelle to work today" question.
Corvelle- - -reminds me of Caravelle- - -anybody remember those candy bars?airrj said:Corvelle. Yea, that's what mine is...
Sort of... I really don't like the look of the LT4 valve-covers. They look good on late-models, but just too much "plastic" for an old car IMHO. I like the vette injector covers, because they make it look so clean, but I don't want any more plastic on it than that. So far, it's looking exactly as I had hoped it would hopefully it doesn't look like spagetti when the wiring is done :clonk: I've heard the speartech harnesses look great, so I'll part with the $650 and not look back.72SSAbody said:Are you going for the reverse LT4 look?
