I haven't got my Opel to the track yet, I am waiting on my alcohol carb and then I have to get some headers made. Its getting close though. Maybe we can meet up one weekend at the track.

Sounds good Chris. I assume you head out to Commerce when you go? Several of my friends who race all get together and head out there several times a year.
We started droping in the motor today. Made some headway, but now its parts ordering time. I will hopefully have her ready to go and out for the first time around mid September.....I hope!
Let me know as you think you might be heading to the track and vs.

I will let you know. I sure do wish they had money trees though. It would make getting the money for the headers a whole lot easier

Nice. Good stance, nice paint, etc... the 69 w/ RS front has to be one of the best looking muscle car front ends ever... this one sports it well.

I knew it was a fiberglass frontend, I like how they used a real grill, now all you need do is air brush paint the hidden headlight covers on there and it'll look stock.

Everybody usually puts a Z28 emblem on the grill but I think RS looks better.

I use to own a round tube chassis Nova that was real low like that, they run good on the track but avoiding bottoming out the chassis and the rest of the stuff under the car becomes a pain and is the only reason I sold that car.
