Manny, if my Lotto Max Ticket comes through, you will have another car dropped off at your place giving you free will to do another one off,,, the dreams are endless,,,n:)

Looking forward to seeing future progress.
 
Looking forward to this build also.
Wondering who's car this is, as I don't recognize it at all. Thought I knew most of the Caledonia Corvette guys?
 
This is going to be one insane C3!!! I can't wait to follow this build.

getting rid of the irs and going 9 inch ford eh.....must be planning on some serious drag racing. are you going to back half the car manny ? this is one i will be watching with great interest. will that rear be a bolt in unit from someplace like moser ? i am thinking the 406 we are going to build will be too much for the irs.

Since I have complete control of the build , I have not ruled out going with a completely new frame with a C4 or C6 suspension set up . The C3's are not the most rigid frame even with a fully aftermarket suspension and a 4 link .

I will be doing the build wish list over the next few weeks and once I have the the final costs in place I will post it up :D
