Default Project '66 GEDAGRIP

For a member with so very few posts, I must say it doesn't reflect the inspiration and knowledge I've gathered over the last few years. Here is some history on the car to where it currently sits - literally. Many thanks to Steve - ADRNELIN, who has personally guided and continues to labor with me around this build. Couldn't do it without you brother. Started with a tired but clean turn key (driver) Georgia car. Had an average restoration from a 327 sport coup to an SS about 10 years ago. The objective for the build overall is to mainly cruise and hit the local autocross a few times a year. With all the variations of what a protour car is, well to put it plainly, I want a modern car while doing everything I can to keep it looking like it rolled out of the factory in Atlanta back in '66.

Completed:
Suspension: Speed Tech's complete Track Time Kit with ATS'- Thanks Jay...
Brakes: C6/C5 - Thanks Tobin…
Steering: All new (non rack n' pinion)
Wheels: 18x8 front / 18x10 rears Budnik Fontanas - (pics below are 17" Hopsters used to assist with the new brake install a few years back).
Drivetrain: LS6 + T56
AAW - classic kit

Next Steps:
Body/Paint: Cortez or White

Here are a couple of pics to start.
Like you, glad to finally be making some head way into my build.

Bit of a stretch for summer '15, but would be nice the following summer…
No matter, I hope to be driving shot-gun in Steve's '69 Camaro due out this spring - no pressure bud…

Thankfully on track - put my order in for a complete all aluminum LS6 + T56 with complete Howell harness, and drive accessories with A/C. Just sold my 454 big block and TH400 locally. Time to get the engine bay freshened up over the summer for delivery in September. Needless to say I'm blown' fuses with excitement...
If any of you come across some quality long tube headers through contacts, send them my way.

Cheers,
