That El Camino sure has a large rubber contact patch with those tires on the rear!
Pretty sure the only thing that Elky could do for me is get a ticket. ;D 8) 8)

It's rare to see a 6-71 blower being used instead of an after market blower.
CARS SUCK!

I actually like the 55 and 56 model years better than the 57 Chevy.

Back in my college days a friend had a 1956 Chevy 210 Handyman Wagon. I thought that was the coolest car!

The origanal steering out

New parts layed out

once the pump is in place Ill get some pictures of that and a few better ones of the car once it is off the Rack.

The 55 project is waiting to see what the owner wants to do. The dual webber set up wont go in  because they added power brakes and the booster is in the way. The manifols is designed to work on a  non power brake vehicle.So its pushed to the side untill the owner decides what they are going to do as they supplied the parts. I will Up date with pictures when the time comes.

The  67 GT Mustang back aways that got the Unisteer, we recied the Motor back from the engine shop this week and the 5 speed trans is here, the car should be done at the body shop in a few weeks so hopefully there will be a update within the month.
