Well as some of you know, I picked this thing up... It likes a ton of work, and I have a optimistic completion date of next fall. I haven't really done anything to it but install an original GT steering column, and removed the carpet for cleaning. I'm going to disappoint some of you by letting you know my current plans do not involve returning it to its former 42R status, at least not at this point.

So far I have an FP3052, ETS Pro-Race core, 1000cc Injectors, BC 280 cams... and some other small goodies...

Wish me luck!

I may end up picking up those wheels in either bronze or gray for my white colt. They look very good on these cars to me for some reason.

G/L with the build, can't wait to see the finished product.

I'll have to do some digging on the width, but they are 15's. I'm out of town right now but I can look at the size when i get home. I'm 95% sure that they won't clear a stock strut...

LOL, I wish somebody would have drove it, because what I was doing sure as heck was not driving....
I think a smaller turbo set-up will work better in the car.

A friend of mine helped me hang a stock front cor support top back on the car a while back... I've just been too lazy to update this. I had forgotten I even took pictures until I found them on the camera today. Either way not sure if I like it or not... I'd like to do some tube work up there, just not sure what time and money will allow :(
