My name is Kevin and this my 1971 Chevelle.  I bought it over 5 years ago just like this.  My son and I loved the fact that it
had the '71 rear end and the '70 front end.  He said they go together better.  The only problem is I still need to change
the front "Monte Carlo" bumper that it came with.  We still have plans and now I have a 9 year old grandson that wants
to work on it.  I will make him a GEARHEAD just like my son and I.  Just give me some time!

Your son is right. Although gearheads, sometimes the designers in Detroit  do not see the same vision as the end user. A lot of time and effort go into changing what rolls of the assembly line. I think that's what the car hobby (or should I say lifestyle) is all about. Anyone can buy off the lot and drive it but, then they would all be the same. BOR-ING. The only thing that sets them apart is infusing our personalities into our rides.That is a beautiful car. When I get a larger stable with my move in the near future, one of those will be in it. Your grandson showing interest is way cool. You will now have three sets of ideas for every task. Thanks for sharing your project. Mike

That's funny Kurganhunter since I am a Designer with GM, LOL. [biggrin]   I don't have much pull with the upper management that make those decisions but you are correct, that is what customs, aftermarket and hobbyists are for.  I am just glad I can share with everyone here and the nice feedback I am getting.  Thank you for the kind words.
Take care!

By the way - Good luck on your move!
