What to do.... what to do

Here is my dilemma in short... This lovely lady lightly t-boned me in my 01 Z28 that had only 81092 miles on it. My collectors insurance totaled it because the rear end was shifted and feared damaged. Now, I am buying the car back and had the intention of either selling it off and the LS1 in it or parting out the car and keeping the LS1 and trans to put into my 85 Z28. I just got an 08' Z06 and have a base 93' Vette but I have always had a love for the early C3's growing up. Well, any Vette actually....but, now I have thoughts of taking the LS motor and trans and putting it into a 68-72 C3. Decisions decisions.....oh, the wifey is on me about thinning down my stable of horses! My heard also has a Trailblazer SS and a Silverado in it....and the wife's CTS. Just curious on anyones thoughts....Thanks

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit
