Hey Yo...New Kid in Town!

Hello,
My name is Tim from San Jose CA. I've
got a 72 GT Vega I got at a garage sale about three
years ago. It was under a car cover and I inquired
about its availability, the original owner purchased it
new at Courtesy Chevrolet San Jose in 1971 and kept
records on the car from the first day! The engine had
been rebuilt some 10 years ago but was on its last
legs. After some wheeling and dealing I got the car for
$200.00 and a set of Ping Eye golf clubs that I was only
into for $125.00.
The car is a GT four speed,
Harvest Gold, black interior and straight as an ARROW!
And was bone stock at that point.
Now for the
good stuff: The car now has a LT1 from a 70 Vette. 60
over with angle plug heads, Edelbrock medium rise with
a 780cfm Q-jet. It runs a forged crank, rods,and
piston with a 234/244 488/510 cam. High fire 3A Mallory
box & Comp 9000 distributor. It breaths through
custom exhaust from headers to exhaust tips and single
stage Flowmasters by Sandersons of South San Francisco.
Chris Alston subframe connectors were installed by
Magnum force of Campbell as well as a four point roll
bar. A Turbo 350 is meshed to a Ford nine inch 370
Auburn posi via a custom drive line built by San Jose
drive line. Just needs a custom Stinger hood ( like on
a 67 427 Vette, any ideas where I can find one?)
and paint and maybe a mini tub and it should be
complete. The 9inch was drilled to Chevy 5 on 4 3/4 and I
have 5 lug rotors up front. It runs J-code 14/7
Rally's up front and 15/7 at the rear. The car looks like
what Chevy should have done in the first place which
is what I wanted to do from the start.
Let me
know if you all know where I can find the above
mention hood or maybe a rear spoiler for my hatchback.

Tim
P.S. Time to go hunt down some 5.0s

Peace!
