Good to hear from you Seth. How are the kids?
I tried cutting one of those off a 1971 car with a sawZall and gave up after my second pack of blades. About 4 layers of sheetmetal join there from different directions, all folded together around the rear curves, making it a week-long project at least. If I ever have to try it again I will use a torch.

Hey Frank,

All well here with the family so far with all of the "fun" going on in the world.

Yeah I imagine its a bear to get out. I've seen most people cut out the rear quarters part of them to get them out sometimes. Do you have one?

Oh dear...!

Once you've driven a converted LT1 you are hooked for life, I suppose.

(There are better ways to hold those sugar scoops onto the fenders....)

Haha yes I know. I was doing some test fitting and was too impatient for bolts. I went 5.3 LS this time
