I just came across your site recently,very nice. I have owned my 81 for about 3 years now. It has 110,000 miles on it but the car has been garage kept all its life and is very good condition. I have rebuilt the front and rear suspension and rear wheel bearings. I installed Mid-America true duals coupled to 40 series flowmasters.
I recentlly installed an Edelbrock 2101 manifold and have completely cleaned and re-gasketed the original engine along with new timing chain and gears and harmonic balancer. It's a 4 speed car and a blast to drive and work on. Next on my 'to do' list are a new GM steering gear this winter and maybe new carpet. I am going to keep this car as long as I am alive. Thanks for letting me share!

Dave

mga - I am still utilizing the original computer set up. I rebuilt the dist and carb and the car runs perfectly with this original setup. I've eliminated the EGR and all emission items on the car. I was carefull to plug all unused vacum lines. I didn't even get a check engine condition.

clar2001 - I've got plenty of pictures I'd like to share (I have one in the gallery)but I'm not exactly sure how to post them here. Maybe someone could give me the lowdown?

raidmagic - Yes I love rowing the gears! I am driving a freind of mines 2000 C5 six speed for the next week. He had it in the GM dealership where I work for a check engine light condition and wanted me to 'test drive' it for a week or so for him. That six speed really keeps you busy!!

Thanks for the welcome fellas!!
