wow i found my 56 Buick 2 door Special,, thanks for the info

Thought you guys would like to see the quality of modeling that's going into our 1/8 scale project.

We have used this example to pitch to GM what we would use their supplied drawings for.


thats amazing stuff,

very interesting stuff, i wonder if our resident engine guys are reading this, i would imagine not much has changed over all these years, thanks for the new section, great work.

 i need to update the exhaust on my 69z, i have been looking at the magnaflow 3" SS  systems with the X pipe, but the more i look around the more confused i get, 2".5 or 3", stock look or not, etc, originality is not the main thing for this one, just a nice solid performance good sounding system, any help on this would be appreciated..

mine is easy,,, i knew the person who purchased it new from the local chevy dealer, he was a customer of mine for years, he sold it to one of my friends in 72, and well,, we had more fun than young men should have in that car, then finally my friend fell on hard times in the current upheaval, and he always promised that he would never sell it to anyone else but me, so it holds many memory's for me, many which i can't share because i'm wiser,,, i hope,, and older, and thats my z28's history..

go to Classic Industries web site and type in part number "L95" and take a look at that book. I have a copy and it is VERY basic and inexpensive. Only 100 pages and just enough detail and pictures to show you what is involved and what you would need to do. It would be good for a first restoration book but not really detailed enough to do a full high end professional restoration. Just a "Restoration 101" type book. Pictures make all the difference.

Hope this helps,


got them today thanks for the info,,, again

General Discussion / wiring harness question
« on: January 05, 2010, 03:54:44 PM »
 i had some time to clean some of the wiring connections on the front, headlights, running ,turn , and i did a search for a similar topic, so here it goes,,,, is there one after market harness manufacture or supplier that is better than another, i.e. quality , fit , finish, maybe some of our restoration members can help with these questions.

back to the post,, finished up my latest project, clutch, flywheel, muncie, just in time for the snow, but did manage to give it a quick spin, now to the hesitation, i have instant fuel from the discharge nozzles, and no vacuum leaks that that i can detect, 31 is on the nozzle, so i assume that's .031, it was mentioned to go bigger,,, so if i was to try this, how many and what range were you thinking.

just a side note, i have to tell you guys that i know just enough to get my self in trouble, but since i started this journey with my 69z,, well im having riot, this is some fun stuff, with results that you can see and feel.
