Let's say I had a 95 Impala kicking around...Runs and drives, but prob needs a trans. Very rusty underneath and beat up, but solid enough for one last run...

You guys interested in finding a trans and some time to build a Badass of NE Lemons car?

Good to hear, I was curious how they would hold up to the constant running. Lord knows I have lots of spare radiators and ish for it...

Would a 305 car hold up better or worse than an LT1? or are they comparable, besides the obvious power difference.

LT1 car will run cooler and use less power to move the car, so the LT1 would be the better choice.

Few problems with B-Bodies:

Expensive to run because they drink tons of gas and destroys tires and brakes.

Your weak point is the transmission. You'll need to figure out some way to keep it cool, and the ones that were successful this weekend used slightly strengthened trans.

With that said, they can be very competitive but typically the smaller, lighter cars do better in lemons.

I plan on campaigning something in Lemons in 2012. Whether that's here in Chicago, or back in New England, I'm not sure. I've actually got a line on a Lemons Ready Rolling Chassis of a 94' wagon.

Best of luck on the project, and I'll be very interested to see progress.

I'd really love to, it'd be totally awesome! But I can't afford the time and monetary commitment this year. I will go to the race to cheer you on though! Have a blast!

Jeez, I even wash the cougar in winter. Car washes should be mandatory in New England. Black cars with white dust up to the windows just looks like S*%T

I agree. He only paid $800 for it years ago, and he had 3 of em. This was the worst, hence winter duty.

UPDATE: He raced it this Sunday and survived to race again cheers . Plenty of power, just have to work on the handling Laughing
