Hello to all from the sunshine state(not so sunny at the moment) Been lurking, took the plunge. No Chevelle at the house right now but looking hard. Closest thing I have is a 66 Buick Special(Skylark) and most of what you guys do will work on it too. Currently gathering parts for a 5.3 swap with a single 76mm hair dryer on it for my wife to play with. You guys are a wealth of knowledge and at some point I'm going to sell my Camaro and my Dart to buy a good 65 Chevelle so sellers beware!!

I'd love to see some pictures of the Special. That was the first car my dad bought new. The first car I ever drove (only in the driveway). His was a 225 V6 3sp manual column.

the old special is a pretty solid car. Just a little rust around the back window and the chevelle tulip panel will take car of that. Still has the original 300v8 with a two-speed switch pitch trans.

Ed, I was over your way last weekend on Saturday for the Cars and Coffee gathering at BPS. Didn't see much in the way of old stuff there though. Typical C&C event I guess. I drove my 70 Camaro over for that one.

Thanks for the picture.
There was a 66 Special on Craigslist out west I think that had a V6, 3sp, that I would have loved to bought if I had a place for it.

yeah and I'd love to go but I have to do my last annual tour/summer camp for my AF Reserve unit out of Biloxi. I'm retiring from the military after 35 years(active duty and reserve) so this will be a little bittersweet for me. On the plus side, I'll have more weekends to spend doing car stuff!
