the L32 is also a strong bullet proof motor that starts with 260HP but far more open to do what i want to it and am already familiar with it'* setup and what it is capable of.

so back onto a rear end bowtie.... still have not found anything really great for it yet. thinking of mixing old with new in terms of using a trunk emblem from the 60'* with the absolutely beautiful classic scripts. thoughts on this?

exactly what i was thinking! put the cross flags where the old bowtie was then get the body color bar for the back and put the Impala script on the right side of it then put the matching Chevrolet script i found from the 50'* on the left side
