Is it totally wrong to put ALL your money into fixing your car, then scrape up change for groceries???

That all depends, if your single, no children, not at all. If you have the responsability of supporting a wife and kids YES!!

I sold a numbers matching 68 SS L78 Chevelle to pay doctor bills for my son and I have never regretted it. Some htings are just more important than cars.

Your motor lacks color :) but it looks like you trimmed a few pounds off the car with it :thumbsup:

I was hoping that the "aluminum" paint would kinda make it look cheap so no-one would think it was much, but in person it looks way too good for that. I'll see if i can find a pic of the motor with the radiator and alternator, show the dual electric fans, all that jazz.... :) As far as the "funds" I'm not married but my fiance also wants to fix her car up, i was kinda joking on the "all my money" thing, but i do spend way to much on the ole car...... speaking of.... hoping to have the 4spd and a set of 4.10 gears in it soon, maybe a spool too, i dont care about drivability as long as it plants the 255-60-15s and runs....:hurray:

Top dead center, almost 0 deck height



My Fiance stripped and painted my headers for me, unfortunately the paint isnt lasting too well....



Moroso solid motor mounts and a nice speedpro forged aluminum piston



This was a few minutes before starting it i do believe..... almost 11 to 1 compression with open headers... at 11 p.m. during the week....

Thanks! Once the old credit card is paid down again im thinking of ripping it appart and replacing the crank with a forged crank, not sure if im going to stroke it or not yet, but the biggie is the dual turbo setup that I REALLY REALLY WANT. I thought about running a thicker headgasket and maybe polish the chambers on the heads to lower the compression down and then throw 20lb of boost at it and see what it does... I know I'd need more fuel and alot better pump, along with many other things, but its something that id like to do as soon as possible....... I like the thought of 800 rear wheel horsepower..... or more.....
