Hi folks... Sorry I haven't been on here in ages... Life, and all that you know. Just letting you know that my '77 is finally finished. Many of you remember her as just being a bare frame... There is nothing left that is stock, so no shade from the Purist gallery, please... LOL She's now breathing fire through a 383 Stroker with an honest 400hp, and 436ft-lbs. of torque. There's a Tremec TKO 600 and a Centreforce clutch throwing the power down. The steering box is history, and a Steeroids rack and pinion guides her around now. I'm beyond thrilled, and can't wait for the nice weather!!!

Thanks everyone...Yes, Joel... I know she's never done. The carb. is currently sitting in my basement to be tweaked while she's down for her Winter's nap.
Its good to be back, Sarge... I hope to make some sort of gathering this year.
