    Welcome aboard. Funny, growing up I always thought the Tri 5s were big cars. I got into Novas when I started driving and still have a couple and am now into G body's, basically a small version of a Chevelle. Then at work recently we had a 55 in the shop and I had to pull it out for a photo shoot. It felt much smaller than I had expected, very much like a Nova or my G body. I thought , I could get used to this! I now have a 55 or 56 build on my bucket list. I did a rendering a while back for fun, I like orange and black, satin paint, and a super low stance and below is what rolled out of my mouse.

    Good luck with your project, and keep us posted with pics. You'll find a lot of great folks here, maybe a little more familiar with muscle car platforms but nonetheless we're happy to help answer questions and appreciate cool build threads!

    Welcome David

    I too have a '55 with an inline six. I plan to tweak it but it will stay an inline six for some time.

    A Tri-five might make a good home for a Vortec 4200... Keeps the stovebolt 6 legend alive. You'd be the only one on your block
