IMO if he put a modern set of wheels on it, it'd totally pull it out of the hood category

Legit what I had been looking for was a car to do full hydraulics and candy paint. But this car was just too clean to pass up. And it's too clean to cut up.

Yeah man that is one hell of a garage for sure. I love how it doesn't focus one particular area too much. You have two older rides but hey are so different from each other.

Still loving this thing. May be my favorite currently. Driving the piss out of it. Probably put close to 1,000 miles on it in the last 30 days. Took off the horrible bias ply tires on the wires. Now have learned wire wheels need tubes so I've got it back on stock wheels till I get around to throwing tubes in the tires.

I need to drop an overdrive trans in this thing. With the tire size and the 2 speed powerglide, i turn like 3500 RPM at 65 mph, i have no clue what redline is on these things, but it's SCREAMING at freeway speed. Trying to decide what to do, i think i'll drop a 700R4 in it, only needs a little modification to fit......but then the big question is.....do I say fuck it and drop in a new motor........and then really say fuck it and drop in an LS.....

I mean you came here to ask a question that I feel you already know what everyone is going to say. I vote for bigger motor for sure. The biggest question is do you do a bigger period correct motor or go something crazy modern and maybe put in a supercharged engine from say like a CTSV/ZL1?

lol, the LS blown motors are $$$....and would be pointless cause i'd legit never get traction. I'd probably do a crate 383.....or maybe an LS1 or the 6.0L truck motor.

350/700r4 would be a good combination for a boulevard cruiser.

Your not thinking outside the box enough. You need to do full tubs in the rear for some larger rears so traction won't be an issue

My vote is ... figure out an overdrive solution and keep motor as-is.

Put $ into the 996 since that's the machine that does speed best.

there's not much left to do to it really. Things putting down over 700/700 on pump. I do need to pull the transmission out of the 996 and have it rebuilt as it pops out of second gear sometimes; but that's a $10K expense i'm avoiding, lol


But yea, i think you're on to something. Impala is never meant to be fast...it's a cruiser.


Maybe a blower on the tundra (or man up and buy a raptor)

Can't complain 700/700 on Pump, that's insane.

If your thinking of putting a blower on the Tundra might as well do the new Raptop. That is unless you would rather do the Tundra A) to be different than all those riding around in the Raptors and B) you already own the Tundra.
