    Nice!

    If you want over drive in that thing you should check out an Optishift controller and a 4L80E. Bullet proof combo.

    :puke: I hope its just you. I know theyre not period correct but I like the later rally wheels with beauty rings. My dad stole a set off my brothers 71' Nova (mid-build) for his el Camino. But now he's rocking good ol' Torque Thrust D's

    Thats a great start. My well built 355/700R4 combo would be awesome in that!

    Lmao. Hey I think they look hot wheel's ish. The other rims seem to make the car look more dated. Unless that's the point :dunno:

    We prefer the term "period correct." :D A Hot wheelish look is best saved for hot wheelish tuners.

    Does anyone know where i can get a good air ride setup for a good price? I called slammed specialties and its about 1700 bucks for a complete manifold kit with the bags brackets and everything I would need.
