Okay, here she is again. Month of May. Only thing changed is the month. Still a Malibu with a 396/TH400 and open 3.73 ten bolt. Have only had it out twice so far this summer. First time was in Good Friday, got pulled over. Second time was last Wednesday. I need to change the alternator belt and rebuild the carb. Carb is happening on the 15th of this month. Not sure about the belt. Some weekend, I suppose. I absolutely love driving this car. The looks, thumbs up, double takes that a “kid” is driving it (I’m 42).

Here we go again, 1973 Chevelle SS (real 454 car). Restored in 1992 by my father-in-law. Currently powered by a GM crate motor, SP350/357. It gets lots of interest at the local car meets and shows. Loved helping him get the timing set & driving 100 miles to break-in the new motor. Just did the first oil change last weekend. Muncie 4 speed with 3.73 10 bolt rear gears.

‘73 is my favorite year of the colonnade body style. I had a poster of the Baldwin/Motion silver ‘73 in my room when I was in high school.

Thanks, it does get a lot os looks at the local shows. The interior with the swivel seats seems to be the neatest item. And when the see a Hurst shifter instead of the predicted auto.

1966 138 car it is basically stock has the original 396 4 speed manual, it was restored in 2004. From the ground up, almost everything gone through. The only thing I did not touch was the Muncie and the 12 bolt, fresh oil and done. I changed the color from yellow to this red you see today, it is a corvette red loved it then but today I wish I would have chosen a different color. Changed the interior from white to black, do not regent that at all. For the most part it sits in storage here in Canada snow on the ground seven months a year rain for three more months that only give me a couple months of decent weather to use it. But it is good when I can.

1967 Chevelle Malibu 327/300hp automatic, non stock. This was my wife’s high school car, her Dad purchased it in 1979 for $500. She said that the car was the only reason I married her 28 years ago...LOL. I have done a lot of small upgrades over the years but this past year I really went all out with extra time on my hands. Anyway we have enjoyed her for years but she runs better then every, and as you can see she’s a looker😎

I attempted to delate the 4th photo but couldn’t, still trying to master attachments😳
I’m awful with attachments as well, and I’m a “youngen“ at 42. Lol. Your car is beautiful, man.

Here's my 1966 Chevelle Malibu Sport Coupe that I've owned for six years. All original sheet metal, one repaint by a previous owner with what I think is GM bright blue metallic paint. I built the LS engine for it in my garage with a new GM LSA block, heads, and forged crank, GM LS3 hollow stem intake and LY6 Inconel exhaust valves, adding an Edelbrock E-Force supercharger, custom 9.5:1 CP pistons, Carrillo H-beam rods, Lingenfelter 215/247* .629"/.656" cam and springs, Morel 5206 lifters, Manton Series 5 11/32" 0.120" pushrods, YellaTerra full roller rockers, and Hedman 1 7/8" long tube headers. That's backed with a McLeod RXT clutch, Tremec Magnum transmission, Driveshaft Shop CV joint 3.5" aluminum driveshaft connecting to a GearFX Ford 9" with 3.60 gears, Eaton Truetrac diff, and Moser 31 spline axles. Wheels are Boss 338 18"x8" front, 18"x9.5" rear wearing General G-MAX RS tires, 245/45 front and 275/40 rear. The whoa is supplied by Baer disc brakes, 13" Trak4 in front and 12" SS4 rear. Suspension is Detroit Speed coil overs, control arms, and anti-sway bars, power steering is helped by a Turn One 12:1 steering box and UMI bump steer correction tie rods. I tuned the GM E67 ECU myself using HP Tuners and an Innovate wideband O2 sensor. Exhaust is a 2.5" Pypes Street Pro system. Seats are Procar Elite buckets, gauges are Autometer UltraLite II, steering wheel is from Grant. Shoulder belts are from Morris Classic. Hustling this along our Colorado twisty mountain roads is a real joy!

1971 Chevelle SS Convertible





Originally a small block car but a mild 468 had been put in by the time I bought it five years ago. Added a serpentine kit and did the Grand Cherokee steering box swap.
Drivetrain-wise, added a GearVendors OD to the TH400, rear is 12 bolt posi with 4:11 gears.
Did suspension overkill trying to fix what turned out to four broken or missing body mount bolts. Added double adjustable front coilovers, tubular upper and lower a-arms, adjustable rear suspension with Koni red and SS springs in the back.
Cooling is a DeWitt's aluminum radiator with dual Spal electric fans.
Exhaust is a set of stainless steel headers mated to a Magnaflow 2 1/2 exhaust kit with X-pipe and turndowns.
Interior-wise, added smoked power windows with door panels and custom leather seats from Legendary. Dash has customized SS gauges with voltmeter and oil pressure and Classic Air A/C.
Wheels are either 71 SS with 255/60/15 Goodyears or 15" 70 SS replica with Dunlop GT Sport spending on the mood.

Bought her remotely without an inspection (Big Mistake) as a turn key car, turned out to be a bit less turnkey than planned or budgeted for. But she's a good cruiser and unbeatable with the top down on a nice sunny day.

Double dipping this month, this is my 1971 El Camino:





Bought it twenty plus year ago and turned it into an SS clone/wannabe back in 2010.
All SS components are original where added—hood, dash, gauges, and console.
Engine is a 383 crate with AFR 195 heads mated to a 700R4.
Exhaust are full length headers in front of dual 2 1/2" with Borla mufflers.
Cooling is a DeWitt's aluminum radiator with dual Spal electrics.
Rear end is a posi 10 bolt with 3:73 gears.
Suspension is stock a-arms with 1" drop springs in the front, adjustable rear suspension with stock springs in the back. Koni reds all around.

Interior is a parchment leather with Distinctive Industries door panels, power windows and Classic Air A/C.

This was first "classic car" I ever owned. Bought in 1999 for $2500 with a black paint job that was a few years past due with the original metallic green on green showing through at way too many spots and a 350 that I hot rodded up and had lots of fun in. It had mismatched wheels, a primer grey fiberglass cowl hood and just looked mean. It's as old as I am (both our build dates are Dec 1970) and like a lot of other cars here just feels like part of the family…

Just finished a paint job over the winter.
Supposed to be Victory Red, but the feller with the paint didn't have the exact formula so we looked at chips.
Not sure how close it is.

Vent window delete, SS marker lights on 4 corners, SS park lamps in front, SS stripe across the gate with emblem relocate to center.

Engine is a 5.3 liter with 4L60e, cruise control, aftermarket AC, bench seat interior, 12 bolt rear end, 3.73 gears.
Best was 14.1 quarter mile. Fun car.
