Which bolts are you needing?

ARP rod bolts for a '87 Buick GN. I only need 2. I'm hoping they come in later this week.

Nice work Ken. Must feel great to finally drive it again. Hell, you should find a way to drive it upside down. Its a shame to hide the pretty underside.

But if I drive it upside down, how can I show off the roof vent? And yes, its a shame all that work is not more visible. I LOVE driving the cr. It's better than I even imagined.



And now some lousy pictures:

Don't let it be down for this long again lol. The build is the best part, but instant gratification is good too.

Yeah, I learned an important lesson. I lost a years worth of enjoyment on the car (well, the build was fun, but nothing compared to driving it). I won't let it be down this long again. My goal is to get it to the meet every week and to work every Friday (because my coworkers love riding in it) so I have to keep her running. Honestly, that's why I'm so impressed by your work and your car; you daily drive that thing and have still managed to build a monster and get to work every day.

I would hardly say your car looks like crap! It just needs some paint. I can't wait to see it done.

I know, the rain was a bummer. Perhaps next week we'll get a chance. I'd like to see what that new lens can do. Maybe tonight at the meet?

I should be getting some much better pictures here soon when KP has a chance to work his magic on it.
Evo aaron wouldn't happen to be in the air force, would he?

Exactly a week later and I took pictures. If this was for any other person, these pictures wouldn't get put up.

CAN WE PLEASE DO A REAL SHOOT SOON?!







^^I would LOVE to shoot this during the day, and get a good snap of that green brace.


These are hosted on my flickr, since smugmug's servers are down right meow... These links will be broken in a couple hours, so don't repost them yet.
