Does it have to be on the Bonneville? I did this to my truck.

It'* not done, but it'* a first.

On the Bonny, though, I copied some stuff such as,
mesh grille
door guards
And of course, the decals everyone hates. *see thread in "Your Ride", if you haven't seen them*

Not a bonneville, but red painted 5 spokes were mine. (i'd never seen them on a GP like mine, thats for sure)

Other than that I pretty much just copy others. Why see if it works myself when I can see what works on others cars and copy that. Saves $ that way.

What do you mean by "poor man'* cam swap?" What makes it different from any other cam swap.

I guess I was referring to the fact that I'm using a reground cam and raising the compression while using as many stock parts as possible. I know I'm not doing anything new by changing cams and milling heads, but I believe I'm the first to take material off the cam and make up for it by milling the heads to keep the valvetrain happy. After all these major changes, can you believe I'm still using stock pushrods, lifters, and rockers?
