I took Nasty out of the Back Garage Today . Now we get to see how you make a Strip Car back into a useful Street car . It's way hard to Drive with that Manual Steering and Big Azz Camshaft . There is a Fine Line from a Strip only car and a Street Performance Car . This car is just to the side of Strip only nod.gif

Every one keeps asking me to do a Burn out ? Well Today I did take the car out on The Street for the Very First Time . It was just to the Corner and Back . The car sat in the Back Garage for about one year and wasn't warmed up . I took it off the Line once but not full Blast . It Jerk up the Front end pretty good and went a Bit Sideways . Some how I hit the Windshield Wiper Switch in all that Fun . Next will be my Exhaust system and Fuel Cell and Pluming . Then I will need to do some A+ Tuning with some ignition up grades and a Better Carburetor . Them open headers vibrate the whole car and camera biggrin







And here is how a 355 Idles with a Big Azz Cam

I had to buy more parts for My Exhaust System . So I went ahead and Bought this Solid Trans Mount too . The Poly one is to High this one is more Like the Stock Height . Not to worry I have Rubber Engine Mounts . So I will have some Flexibility . It was $20.00 Bucks not bad ?

After working all night at the Job . I came home and Jack up the Monte to finish installing My Street Exhaust System .

I had to get some mufflers on this Car so I can run it / Dial it in better . It's way to Loud with open Headers . I had some Nice New Monte Carlo SS Tail Pipes . There was no way they would bolt on with the way they are bent ? And I had to bend up the Rear Floor on Both side just to fit the Mufflers on and still drop them down Low . Very hard car to Mod ? Don't Let anyone Tell you differently ! Oh what Mufflers did I use . Hush Thrush Welded . I was is a rush Finish up this Job before Folks started coming Home from Work . I still will trim up that one Down Spout then Paint the Mufflers and Turn Downs Flat Black . As for a Sleeper Car . You can't Quiet Down them Ported Heads and Camshaft real Easy Ha-biggrin -yawn

Today I started on Making up a New and Stronger Drive Shaft . My Factory Drive Shaft is very small to Test against My 355's Power . And when I installed the 8.5" 442 Diff it's Pinion Nose stuck out more then the 7.5" Factory Diff so I only had about 3/8" In out movement on My Drive Shaft Yoke . Not good so I found a one Ton Truck Drive shaft at the Junk Yard that was 1" Shorter and a Heck of a Lot Larger Diameter . I bought some H.D U-Joints that will work with out side Locks on the Truck Drive Shaft . And inside Locks on My Trans Yoke and Pinion .
