Model
Belair
Rescued from a junkyard in MD were it sat since the mid 80's and it was a rusty bucket. LOL. Engine is a 283 power pack, now it has a 270H cam, 2 4's, Headman headers with 2 1/2" exhaust, and I have installed a custom built 5 speed transmission. I built this car on a budget to be a driver, so it's not perfect. It is not a laser straight show car, but it don't hurt your eyes either. I did everything to the car myself (except the exhaust) at home in a little 18'x20' metal building. Also I'm still going to add A/C.

I am still looking for a 57 2 door to do a complete resto on. That's the one I will really spend my time and $$$ on.
