I see potential in the car. It's not too bad.

I bought a 1984 Camaro for $100 when I was 17. It had a hacked-together 350 and a bad radiator. I went in the deal with a buddy that I worked with at an oil change shop, and we kept the car at work. Well, we never touched the car over a few months and eventually they needed to repave the lot.

So we were moving the Camaro out of the lot and my buddy decided to push it into a ditch. It hit a tree, made a lot of noise and the neighbors called the cops. Long story short, I ended up in court for illegal dumping charges, which were dropped, and now there's a "No Dumping" sign next to that tree. Many poop jokes were made.

Getting that thing worthy to drive on a road is one thing. Making it a 10sec car is another.

i dont see the purpose overall to make it a 10 second car. i can see a 12 -13 second car nicely done. dont know about that whole 10 second race car when you start with that.

If you want a 10 second car, strip it down to only the shell...and sell everything off of it. Bumpers, fenders, wheels, dash, seats...everything.

All that will have to be replaced anyway. Put the thing up on blocks so all the suspension and driveline off because you won't be using any of it unlees you like breaking things.

Although it can be done with this car, 80's F-bodys are still common, and you can pick-up a decent body one with a blown motor or trans for cheap, then build from there, instead of doing both a drive-train and a looks build

Alot of mechanical questions from a person that is going to build a race-car by himself.

that's probably the point... a year later and nothing different.....

p.s. you've had this car for like 4 years.... yet u expect to have it finished in a couple of months.

maybe instead of spending time smoking with ur 17 yr old going nowhere friends u should probably get busy on the fucking car... just a thought

p.s.s. did ur badass friend sean runaway from home yet? he's so badass
