Just thought i would say whats up to you guys...had to get a new user name and such because i forgot all my old stuff. I had the 68 camaro project i was working on and then i sold that, currently got one pro-touring ride a blown 79 Z28 which was in the pics section before the message board obviously got a new face lift...dunno if its still on here or not haven't really searched any for it.

Now im working on a new project i've been killing myself over for the past 8 months. Its a reg cab shortbed 87 S10 that i've dropped a LS1 and 6 speed into, Moser 12 bolt with 33 spline axels and eaton posi, Denny's nitrous ready shaft, currently shaving the entire body including the firewall...just going to be a straight up no nonsense performing and handling truck. Well the best handling i can make a truck anyway. Future plans motor wise are probably heads and a cam, maybe a magnacharger or turbo setup...or a 150-200 wet shot. I've got 275/40/17's on all 4 corners with 2002 Camaro SS 10 Spoke 17x9's. Im swapping out to a hydroboost brake setup and putting a BAER touring system up front and i running 11" torino drums in the rear. I've also dropped the truck down 2/3 but im about to add ZQ8 springs in the front an a 1" billet block on the rear for a total 3.5/4 drop. Im also running Cal-Trac traction bars, and replaced all the suspension componants with MOOG parts and a 12.5:1 ratio ZQ8 power steering box. Here's just a couple pics of the new project....please excuse the messy shop, its clean now :rotfl:

Is your '79 called "Spooky"? Is this it?


Nice car. Welcome back. The truck sounds nice. I can't wait to see the progress.

Ya thats my baby zbugger, and thanks for the compliments guys. The truck should be rolling by spring if i can work on it as much everyday as i've been able to lately. I'll post some more pics of spooky in the new cars section, but thanks for the warm welcome back!
