i gather i might want to find you a motor soon so i can start building it

Umm, sounds itneresting, but what racing are you building it for?(Bia plys?)

May 26, 2008, 5:38 p.m.

C-Prepared on bias-plys. Work better on the surfaces around me, and hopefully on the new nationals surface. There "should" be enough adjustability in the front to run r-comps if I had to.

Very cool Gimp. I have a 79 bird that I was considering turning into a track car. 403 olds with th350. Bought the Pro-Touring F-Body competition suspension kit for it, still in boxes. I plan to have the suspension kit installed soon. But not sure which way I should go with the build. Stripped down track car or mean street machine? currently considering adding a manual trans car to the stable as a tracj car and using the bird on the street. What do you think?

I would honestly say mean street machine. I'm building this car for one purpose, CP autocross, but I get a little envious when my buddies in their XP Cobra replicas drive their cars around town. If you aren't looking to win trophies/jackets, go mean street.
