Default Project Car

Well I just purchased my new project car:



I would like to get some good suggestions for Engine Type, Color, etc.
I am leaning towards a 383 Stroke Small Block with a LS6 Manual Tranny. For the Color I am leaning towards an Emerald Green with the Rally Stripes.

Let me know what you guys think.

All I see is a lot of work..

I was just outside working on my Mustang.. I had the alternator rebuilt, it's a beast now. However I'm still having problems where after the car warms up and I turn off the engine, it won't start up again until it cools down. I think it's a bad MSD ignition. $$$

Cars are money pits I tell you.

Aspkin, you are right bro. I had a 68 Nova like this one and it took me 4 yrs of just hard painful work to get it cherry, but when I would roll down the boulevard it would turn heads. Unfortunately my brother in law decided to borrow it and smash it, and do you know how hard you have to crash this kind of car to destroy it? lol.

I once had a Honda Accord with all the bells and whistles hit me, poor Honda . I had always wondered what an accordion Honda looked like, I did that day.

For the body, I usually have a friends body shop get it prepped for paint. The parts for the car I will either try to get original parts but sometimes use "aftermarket" parts that are made for this specific car.

If you want to go fast find a rolled 04-06 GTO or better there's a site that sells the drivetrains from lots of old corvettes and GTO's with the brain and wiring harnesses...

@Hercules, Actually I had an LS6 Engine with Tranny, and Drivetrain from a Corvette in my last Nova. I originally got the parts from a guy I knew who was well into stuff and also a crack head. He offered me everything for $4,000...I gave him $3,000, lol.

I love the LS engines.

I have a nissan s14 with a built sr20det. I was always planning on either changing it out for a 2j or LS motor
