i've had it for about a year now but haven't driven it since i bought it. i start it occasionally but i bought it as a project and have been too busy remodeling my house.

i picked it up from my in-laws and i have driven it in the past. the top goes down smoothly but will sometimes hang up on the return.

If by some small chance you're more interested in a fun and pleasant DD than a balls-to-the-wall hot rod, you might consider keeping the 3800...it's supposed to be a great engine.

i don't want it to be a racer but i do want it to have plenty of power. if i drop anything bigger than a 350 in it then it will be a really mild motor. just big enough to smoke the tires from time to time.

my plans are still in developement. the only thing that i am set on is the paint. i was thinking about some ol'school cragers and side pipes but i am not sure if i want any chrome on it. i have a long way to go on this car so the things that i want today will prolly change 2 or 3 times before it is finished. as long as it is a head turner i'll be happy.
