"I'm going to pretend I didn't see this"

I'll likely get kicked out of the township if I buy any more cars, but I've always loved the nose on these, and those wheels make my knees weak.

Firmly in the category of 'way too far away' but very cool. 
T-tops are on my bucket list.
GLWS!

WOW is all I can say. Beautiful car, sounds like you did all the right combos of the factory parts, which makes for a really cool build.

Just use the ignition module from a TPI car.  The TBI module pulls some timing at 3500 or so, The TPI adds some in.

use Delco # D1943A for the good module. With the LT1 cam, I set the base timing to 8 degrees.

A couple of tiny bubbles you probably wouldn't find unless I pointed them out.

The color is called "Brilliant Red Metallic". I think its a bit more classy vs a bright red. The pictures give it a brown tint, but not in person.

Really nice.  I'm tempted to fly and drive this back to TX.

Nice price on this Firebird.  I don't suppose you'd have any interest in trading for a completely rust-free 1991 Miata with service records dating back to April 1992?

If he wants a Miata I have a stellar 94 Laguna Blue A pkg car to trade too.  I'm still thinking about a fly and drive though.

Want to see this in the challenge again?  I'd fly, drive, compete and drive for challenge price!  Probably no, but I have to ask!

Thank you for the consideration and reply.  I understand too.  It is a very nice 3rd gen and the build thread was a good read.
