    While I was in Iraq I saved enough money to drop my Chevelle off the body shop. That was back in November.

    It took them forever to get some paint on it. It was killing me.

    Then finally I got the call!

    I let it sit like this for a while because I needed to finish my Suburban so I could drive it to work and pick up things. So regear, crossover, D60, 14 bolt, and a Doubler later I go on vacation in the Sub and I twist one of the tubes on the (unbreakable) 14 bolt housing about 4 hours from home. So I'm a little PO'ed at the Sub right now and the wife asked me to get the Chevelle back on the road. What a great women, telling me to work on my car. Well, this is what I did this month.

    Hopefully I'll be driving it by next month.

    Let me rub it in then. Old Chevelles and other cars from the past are everywhere around here. I don't go a single day without seeing old iron. My brother still has his high school car in the garage, a '68 Camaro (taken apart). I've been telling him to sell it to someone that will actually use for years now. I think he's just too lazy to advertise.
