Just stopping by to say hello. It's been a while since I've been here.  Work is super busy. We're still settling in to the new house. Wife has constant projects for me. And my kids are getting big quick.
 
I had a 56 belair come into my life that I couldn't pass up. I'm planning on turning it into a sixties style straight axle gasser.

 BUT... I promised myself I'd get Ethel roadworthy before I start that project.  

First on the Ethel list is a torque converter. For some reason I put a 3000 stall in it years ago.  It's a pain in the A$$ to move around in the driveway with that. My car was originally a straight 6. What tranny did my car come with? (1975) I now have a stock 305 out of a mid 80s blazer, attached to the original trans.

I agree. Big blocks get the turbo 400.

Trying to stick to that plan. A buddy of mine got me a great deal on a torque converter today.  I also need to remount the swivel seats.  It was originally a bench seat and the buckets are to close to the steering wheel.  

I'm putting together a temporary garage out back for the 56. Out of site out of mind. Ethel owns the garage. Even my bike is stored elsewhere.
