      Project "Dust Off" then and now.

      Here are some pics of project Dust Off then and now. Let me start by saying that I purchased this car in Phoenix in 1973. The first two photos were taken in the late 70's when the car was in drag racing trim. It was then stored in mom's garage for the next 30 odd years collecting dust. The others are how it looks in 2010 after being dusted off (hence the name) to start the current build with the G-Link rear suspension, Moser 9" w/floating hubs, DSE subframe, Corvette C6 Z06 brakes and Forgelines all around. And for reference I included the rendering Shawn did for me.

      Still have a long ways to go before it hits the street but I'm happy with the start.

      How loud are the exhaust dumps before the axle? I'd like to run a setup like that, but I'm concerned about noise, drone and fumes.

      Thanks,

      Daniel

      I bet they're louder and stinkier than if you ran them out the back.
