5 speed car, updated to hydraulic clutch. It's got a used (presumably stock) 350 in it now. I'm working on buttoning up the drivetrain, exhaust and such after the engine swap. It's the car I drove in college. It's been sitting for almost 10 years, and now I'm playing with it again!

I'm on the lookout for some cheap, used tires for the 16x8 IROC wheels that I have for it (not pictured). Same goes with a cheap, used catback exhaust system and any other go-fast, handle-good goodies that you might have laying around for a 3rd gen Fbody.

This thing is ratty, but I'm hoping to trim it down and make something fun out of it. Ultimate aspirations are for some track duty in the distant future.

Next stop is the exhaust shop to have the y-pipe connected to the cat.

Just waiting on the tags now.

Tags are on it. I've got to pull the left side header, though, to weld a plug in the stripped-out O2 bung.
