Holy cow! Remembered this thread from years ago and decided to check back in. What an incredible build! What does it put down? Do you have Instagram or anything?

Thanks. It's the sixth one I've built. This one I rolled it in the garage, Nov 3 2020 and showed it at Pontiacs in Pigeon Forge June 3 Exactly 7 months to build. Every nut bolt touched. It almost killed me. lol

No numbers. I've actually driven it maybe 4 or 5 times and at most around the neighborhood. The Holley efi system is still in self learn mode. I need to tweak and test a few things and I also have a carbon fiber lip for the front. Just a few things I wasn't able to do in the time I had. Spring, I hope to get it out and have some fun.

No real social media.

Well. I bought another. This is an 04. But it’s the ultra rare Barbados Blue. Lowest production color. It’s a roller. I’m acquiring an LS2 and T56 from a buddy. A slew of parts already ordered. Hopefully this prevents me from buying the ZL1 I was to pick up last Friday. Lol

Well. The ZL1 sold before I got there. I have a contract on a 17 atsv with 12,880 miles. Something fun to drive for the summer

The caddy looks much nicer than the previous cars you’ve purchased. Moving up in the car world for sure.

Bought another project. I owned a 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix back in 81-83. Have looked for another forever. Finally found one last July / August, while I was recovering from surgery. Had a buddy local to it in Missouri go check it out, sent him the funds and he hauled it to his house. And shipped it to me. 72 GP SJ with 455. Had some rust under and around the vinyl top. I dismantled the car, replaced body mounts and all suspension. Sent the body to my body guy. He put a new roof panel on it, straightened the panels and shot it factory white, Currently in wet sanding / buffing. Should be back Saturday April 8. I'll reassemble some, then send it to a local shop to have the new black vinyl top and headliner installed. Bring it home and install: all new interior, weather stripping, stereo, Edlebrock aluminum heads, Butler Performance cam kit, Holley efi and distributor, Ram Performance headers. New rally wheels, exhaust, new glass. I sent all the trim off to have dings removed and it polished. Looking forward to it. Hopefully have it done by June1 to take to the Pontiac show in Pigeon Forge. Lot's to do.
