Would be cool (but a lot of work) to re-create the scoop in the top of the blower - but then again - with that blower - who needs a scoop.
Well, here is the final product, almost, but we did drive her around the neighborhood.

And yeah, I'm 100% sure the hood scoop will be gone, I've decided to cut up the hood from the 60, it has rust on the inside so I won't be destroying a really nice hood.

Click on the image thumb and it should take you to a larger photo.

Default I ended up with a new gas pedal and cable

I ended up removing all the factory linkage and pedal. Had to cut some new holes in the very bottom of the firewall for the new pedal.

But at least now I have a pedal and linakge that doesn't give me grief with play. What I don't have tho is a kickdown on the transmission. But we are pulling the COM out and installing a C6 soon as I get the C6 beefed up.

It's the process that is fun right?

A kickdown should relatively easy to do.

Couple of months back when my 10 year old tires went bad a buddy of mine suggested it was time to go with some Torq thrusts and blackwalls.

I gave it some thought but told him that the Squarebird just didn't do "hot rod" as well as sticking with the whitewalls for the "personal luxury" look.

I stand corrected. That looks awesome.

(and wish I had looked into the torq thrusts a little further)

Of course - then I might have wanted a blower - - so maybe I went the best route for my car after all.
