That would be a lot of fun, unfortunately this is California with the nations strictest smog laws in the land, and I have learned the hard way that if it is newer than 1976 you cannot get away with much under the hood :-(

This car takes on historical status in 2 years here in PA. No smog. ever again.


​​​​​Bones, if I buy that vehicle, will you drop in a rebuilt lsj and matching tranny?

toomanny, what are the stats for the El Camino and is it for sale? A bit off topic I know but oh well. My wife would.... You know.... If I handed her the keys to it in the driveway.

If California had that kind of historical status I would just store the car until that time, and for sure rebuild and upgrade, but reality is something entirely different.
As for the off topic on my El Camino, nope not for sale, My wife would kill me if I sold it as she likes driving it as much as I do.... Now if someone has a Sky redline they wanted to trade...........

Hey, you write the checks, I’ll build you a forged LSJ and source an F40(6sp) trans to drop into that thing... the gearing of the six speed will bring highway mileage into the mid thirties, maybe near 40mpg, and the engine will handle just about as much air/fuel mass as you wanna throw at it... at SC2 weight, stock power will run high 13’s, TVS blower with supporting mods will get ya mid 12’s... go turbo and there’ll not be much to keep up with you short of built Corvettes or the like

Well, I am happy and sad at the same time.
I sold the Saturn to a kid last night. I had posted a CL ad, and was bombarded with scammers and flaky people. I just told some of them NO Way was I going to sell it to one of them. I was getting the "I only need it to run for 2 months until .. bla bla bla, What I was hearing is "I only want to drive it until it dies, not register it and abandon it when I am done"
So I got this call form this Kid (I call him a kid because I am old) anyway I was very honest to him about what the car needed and the condition of the rest of the car, he knows how to work on them so that was OK, he sent his wife over to look at it and she pulled up in a 96 SC, looked it over and really liked it, the next day he came by and also really liked it. He was looking for a project and was excited about how good shape the car was in and was already sourcing an engine for it, so I sold it to a guy who really wanted an SC2, and was willing to work on it, and in the end he will have a really nice car when he is finished with it.
So I am glad it got to someone who didn't want a temporary car to trash, but instead got the car he wanted and will cherish.
