I guess I will start a build thread here for the new project. Plans are to use a 92 body from Arkansas, that is really clean, add cage, the swap powertrain from my 96 over and most all the mods I did to that one. This build is scheduled to be done in July some time for a couple shake down runs before heading to Drummond Island in Aug.


it was hit in the front with a little damage to the unibody, but still straight.

very little rust underneath is always a plus
