New member 73 Chevelle SS from Michigan.

Hi,

My name is Martin Super and I am from Michigan. This is my third 73-77 car I have owned. My first was a straight-6 75 Chevelle four door. My second car was a 1973 Chevelle Malibu 454 (factory). The car turned out to have too many rust issues. Recently I purchased a 1973 Chevelle SS 350. I have plans on putting in a 5 speed manual transmission, and going through the motor.

I am very interested in finding other people from Michigan to go to car shows together. I hardly ever see 73-77 cars. I was at the Grand Rapids, MI metro cruise this last year and saw one 73 Chevelle and one 75 Laguna S3. There were over 10,000 cars there!

So drop me a line if you are in Michigan/Northern Indiana!

Welcome martinsuper73. Wish you were in Ky. I am always looking for someone to go to the local cruise with. Can't wait to see a larger photo of your car.

Here are some pics. Car has factory tach, floor shifter. The engine bay was a bit of a nightmare. I have since changed the intake to an Edelbrock EPS. I had to install studs, better gaskets and lock nuts to get the valve covers to stop leaking. In the spring its a new exhaust, cruise control, and the doors will be rehung. Also new oil pan gasket. I love cleaning up after "redneck hotrodding".

I am going to change the baby moons to Year One SS ralley wheels. But for now they are ok.

Car looks great. I like the wheels on there. Maybe paint the wheels black or to match the car. Something a little darker to contrast the chrome.
