I built my 350 Chevy powered 240 wagon 30 years ago. I made it a 2 door 29 years ago, hence the 283 SD. I an now coming up on 300,000 miles. BTW it is a blast to drive!.

this car is so well done and so ugly. It's just too smoothed out

Nice job on the details!

My only complaint is that I would have kept the original gauge look vs the GTO gauges.

It looks like it's a bear to work on in that tiny engine bay.

Very nice interior but too plain looking on the outside. I would of chosen a different exterior color.

I think it's a very well done car.

Good color combo, clean, and simple.

To my eye, it went a bit too far on the exterior. It looks bland.

Add some trim and bumpers back on and I think it would look better again.

But, not my car, and my tastes are not universal.

I'm not hating on the guy...but if I never saw another LS swap, that'd be fine. Otherwise a nice hot rod. Not to my taste, but he built his car, not my car so high-five for getting it done.
