History
I was at the beginning of my senior year when i found "the one" in Oakdale, CA right by my dad's shop. Had the original 2 bolt main 350 bottom end but had different heads, gear drive, flowtech headers, a mild cam, 40 series flowmasters, no interior except seats, shift kit in the TH350 trans, B&M Mega Shifter, one-legger rear end, but I was instantly in love with this car. From then on every paycheck from the grocery store went toward performance parts for the car. I've owned it for 10 years now. Bought it for $3500

Interior
When I bought the car, the front seats were out of a full size Impala and didn't fit the car. So my interior guy traded me some bucket seats out of a modern car with lumbar adjustment instead. Vinyl on the edges and black cloth where your back and ass rests cause i hate sticking to the seats on hot summer days. Went with 80/20 loop black carpet from classic industries, under the carpet is the Jegs quiet ride sound and heat dampener from the firewall up the rear seat shelf, factory headliner and new door panels front and rear from Classic as well
