    Wife's 78 Monte Carlo build

    Seven long years ago we bought a new jeep so we could park the wife's car and restore it.
    The recession hit and $500 a month jeep payments took their toll. I drive the car off ad on for a bit and it has been resting for the last four years.

    Fast forward to October 2014. We have an engine in storage. Mild built 350 with 305 heads and gobs of torque. My oldest son says hey I'm gonna freshen up moms engine so we can put it back in.

    She said that's fine but I want it back "just like it was". Well three months later he is now midway through a 400+ hp build and waiting for all the parts for the new aluminum heads to arrive. I've had to rethink all plans for the rest of the drivetrain.

    Coming soon:

    stage 3 700r4

    Junkyard 3.73 rear end

    *to be continued* (with pictures and updates)

    Thanks guys. I'll try to get some more backstory and current (before) pictures up this weekend.

    It was like 10 degrees last night with a high around freezing today. I may have to also incorporate a redneck garage build if we are going to be starting on this before spring lol.

    I updated post 2. That's it so far lol. Too cold and waiting for the engine to arrive. I'll be getting the transmission ordered in the next couple weeks.

    I'll try to see if I can get some engine pics from my son in the mean time.
