I have been lurking here for a couple years now and thought it was time to join

My name is Scott and am the very happy owner of 1968 LeMans. There's a pimply faced kid back story and such but it's a work in progress getting some of the stupid stuff done over the years so the car becomes and acts like one unitized machine.

Used to work in a machine shop and built many engines in the late 80's early 90's, then master tech then service manager now own a music school and guitar shop.

The old shop experience and calls to Nunzi bring back fond memories and the smell of the car and it's glorious power are all more fun than I remember it ever being. I followed the Pontiac way when building my engines...this I did not build so again. it's a corrective process...i signed up to have a q jet done by Cliff and plan to change to 3.90 or 4.10 for a rear in the future.

Engine:

72 400 short block, TRW flats, .030; not decked, ARP rod bolts

#62 heads; stock; rebuilt good stuff, no porting.

Mighty Demon 750 Sunoco Stock Holders Edition.....

it came on here and I'm sharp with carbs but this is too much for a 500HP 455, it's fatter than a Holley 850DP no matter how you roll it, I have a Holley 750 DP stock it will get until Cliiff calls

"El ridiuloso" cam, think its a Mganum 292H...Came this way I know, I know.I am VERY conflicted as to what to used for a cam. Currently mixing 93/110 and know I still will be...called 6 different cam manufacturers...the .050" were 214-231 intake

Tubro 400 dropped so I covered it to a 4 speed; M21....If anyone would like to know how this is done compared to a Chevy, please contact me.

I have a multiplication problem in gearing....M21/3:55=7.8;1 in first..sluggish.

3:55 chevy A body 12 bolt

Heated HEI/Curved

Car has power steering and power brakes

(15's 215/65/15) 26"

So that's my story and I will now torture you with my cam company results and such LOL!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

It blends in nice. I actually like the greens, and that's a great color.

Thanks again!

My grandfather had a 67 firebird he bought new in Verdoro Green, to this day it has less than 12K on it and my uncle has it. 326, glide, it goes!

I've been toying with the next repaint being black but not sure if I'm into that much labor cleaning

BTW, my car used to have real 421 SD engine in it when I was a kid. Guy worked for a Pontiac dealer and they always had old "junk" in those days lying around lol.
