No, I missed the show, but I wanted to see how the car ran sporting the LS1 motor. Did they discuss much how they installed the motor? What transmission was it running?
I used to have a Camaro with the LS1, what a great motor. That motor would out run even the built 455 in our olds and get 30MPG on the freeway on regular fuel compare to the olds and it's 6 mpg on supreme. I think it's not a very attractive motor but it sure performs.
The car was sure a beauty, just seeing photos of it gets me wanting to get our 58 back on the road.
