Hey all!
Just scored my first Vette via eBay.

1980 black with t-tops and cloth interior.

Drove it home and started tearing out the inside.
Not too bad, but lacking proper maintenance and TLC

short term is to Lay down some hush mat, new black carpet, new leather mounted seats and tighten up some trim.

Long term is to swap a stroked LS 6.0 under the hood.
The block and many performance parts have been sitting in my garage looking for a home.
This looks like the right project.

Sounds like a really good long term plan.

What was the 6.0L original planned for and what happened with that project?

I've always wanted to do a 6.2L swap. That's probably my favorite LS configuration.

Welcome to DC :buhbye: from a NW Ohio Buckeye on the border of Wolverine territory.
My 2nd Vette was actually a 80 "mule". Still miss that car everyday. :thumbsup:
ENJOY the Blue screen
