PostSubject: Well I guess this goes here.   Fri Feb 13, 2009 3:56 pm

My name is Ray for those of you who don't know me.
I live nowhere near New England but I am an avid B-body lover and I was invited by one of the Bill's.
I am in the U.S. Army and I have been for the last 7 years and I plan on doing it as long as our good old Uncle Sam will let me.
Yes my location is right, I am in Iraq and have been for the last 11 months. The good part in that is we only have 3 months or so left until we go back to Germany.
If the license plates on my car in all of my pics looks a little strange that is because it is a U.S. forces Germany plate. Yes I was crazy enough to bring my wagon to Germany for 3 years, it was a blast to be in the land of the station wagon with the biggest one of all. It was even more fun to drive my wagon all over southern German, Luxembourg, and parts of France, how many guys can say they have done that in a B-body.
The car is once again in the states and waiting for me. It seems to act up every time I deploy, last deployment shortly after I left my brand new GM oil cooler line decided to start leaking. The wife is ever vigilant when it comes to cars and noticed right away thankfully. This deployment the car decided to spin a bearing while I was visiting on mid tour leave, what a way to say I missed you. Oh well at least the engine died in America where it is cheap to fix a small block chevy.

Well I hope to have some fun here and add to the wealth of knowledge that is already here.

Did I mention I make signatures?

I will be going back to Florida for a little while after Germany and then back to North Carolina.
Well I have a couple of pics of my ride.

This is what the car looks like now. Believe it or not the car is sitting on H&R springs that I hope will drop the car about 3" all the way around. Pay no mind to the big blue ball of rope, I had to tow it to where it is after the engine seized up.

As far as rust goes this is as bad as it gets on my car. It was an original Florida car that I bought in North Carolina and for all intents and purposes is rust free. Judging by New England standards this car is mint. I did grow up in a state that is more northern, eastern, and western, then any state in New England, I'll let you guys figure that one out.

Here is some rust for you guys, Florida style. The floor and rockers are clean for the most part. This is my brothers B-body that he has given up on, he is the second owner so I think the car has been in Florida it's whole life as it has low mileage too.

You need a brand new Goodwrench truck 350. Use your manifold, get a tbi and chip from a lo5 car and rock the house. The truck 350 has four bolt mains. cheers

I got another 305 lined up with 92k miles on it after I freshen it up a little I will drop that in for now. Once I get to North Carolina I will start saving for a CPT transmission and look into one of these:
or I will look into building a 350 or 327 when the time comes.
I am also looking into getting set up to tune my own chips so I can maximize whatever setup I go with.
Of course I might just dump the stock TBI setup and go with one from accel, their system is more like the LT-1 system as it doesn't use chips and can be modified on the fly and data log a lot easier.
Your going to need a police lap top holder. Very Happy
