I thought I had it all planned out. I saved my money, I looked and looked and then found a cab&chassie 14bolt with the gears that i want, got disk brakes and just need a locker. Searched and bought hubs and rotors from a 3/4 GMC frontend to change my bolt pattern up front to match the 14. Now I need new beadlocks that are 8lug and of course some new tires, new driveshafts new springs for the SOA and all the little things to get that completed.
My plan was to wait until next year before I planned to change to fuel injection, I just don't have the money to do it all at once and was hope to have all upgrades completed in a couple of years, I'm pretty happy with the way things are going and I think I'm going about it slowly with the right frame of mine.
Then "IT" happen, last night my brother came by, he's looking for a new motor for his '69 ss camaro and mentions that he found a 2000 ss impala(?) with 5000 miles that's gettin parted out and the TPI 350/700r is $1200. I couldn't
sleep last night, I can't get that damn motor out of my head! "IT"s what I was going to save for, just not this year. I guess I just need someone, besides my wife, to tell my that I should stick with the plan, slow down , don't do something thats stupid....again!
But I know that alot of you would get the engine!
Man, I need to rent a movie
or get a bottle of scotch or something to get this thing out of my HEAD!
Thanks, I needed to get this off my chest.
