That's kinda the $$ I was hoping for. I need to do a repaint to my '79 RC/SE, since the So. Cal. sun was not kind to it over it's lifetime (although no rust is not a bad thing!). I have'nt decided to leave it factory or recolor it to match my '85 Power Ram. Regardless, it needs some attention, as every single piece of trim or badge is loose and I don't want to loose anything!! TT

To be honest with you Matt, I never really thought about it. I've got a core 360 4 speed truck motor for it, awaiting a rebuild. I'm also parting my '82 RC 318 4 speed in order to convert the Power Ram's auto (slipping) and put it behind the fresh 360. Since I've only got the funds for this or the repaint, I'm still on the fence about it.

Let's not hijack this forum anymore, feel free to email me anytime.

All I planned on keeping is the tranny and everything else required to do the auto conversion (including the steering col.). I was a great winter beater truck for me, original 318 4bbl runs alittle smokey, but butter smooth idle and decent power. Windshield is cracked, very rusty body, but it still drives OK (if you don't mind a leaky fuel line).

Bottom line, I'd really like to do a package deal and roll it off to a good home!

No I havn't ususally if its a week night I get out of work around 6 so by the time I get to a show it's late.. I went to the dg car show yesterday.. I usually take the vette out.. I noticed alot of you are closer to my age, I'm 22.. right now I am surfin around looking to find some info on a lift kit. I'm itchin to buy one.. if I don't I'm probably going to spend some money on the LT4 I am building for the vette..
