Short video clip I did so my dad could hear what it sounds like at an idle, so I figured as long as I did I might as well post it here. Not the greatest video. The exhaust is stock except for the JBA headers. It is quiet at idle, and cruising but when you open it up it really comes alive. I was planning to eventually change out the catback to a Magnaflow, but I don't think I will be anymore. The video was so my dad could see it is just a mild cam in the car and nothing radical like we had in the 454 in his chevelle. It has just enough lope that you can tell it might not be stock..in my opinion the car is definitely a sleeper.

Might want to wear headphones if you don't have decent speakers.

Just a cold start with a rev to about 2800 rpm.

Nice car! The color is spot on, and it sounds great. Does it have the blue inserts in the interior?

Success!!!! Ditto on the congrats back home.

I had a friend in High School who let his GF drive his built 66 Chevelle in a mobile home park "what could she hit". She didnt hit a tree but the car was a temporary "furnishing" in a living room. She had a little trouble with the clutch, it kind of stalled, she gave it the gas. "Left turn Clyde" and it hit the mobile home, bounced up and crashed through the wall. Totaled.

Oops, my bad. I said there were pictures of the interior on the first or second page but forgot that was a different thread I had started. I will get pictures of the inside tomorrow since several people have been wanting to see them.






I will probably start a new topic in the pictures section once I get some good pictures taken and thrown together. Let'* hope for better weather tomorrow than today.

Back when I first wanted one I was on the fence about the blue and was leaning towards the black. Glad u chose to stick with the blue as I LOVE it. It'* so unique and just looks good with the car overall.
