No car shows! Empty No car shows!

Post by 77camino on Mon Apr 20, 2020 2:12 pm

I’m sure everyone is in the same boat as me, every car show in my area has been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Since we can’t go out and see nice cars, I was thinking  that we could have an online car show. We have all seen each other’s cars through intro and build threads, but how about posting some recent pictures and a brief description of your cars.


I’ll start it with mine. It’s a 1977 El Camino with 30k original miles with original paint and interior. Engine is a stock 305 with chrome accessories. It replaces an identical first car. I have owned it for 20 years.

Well, mine is still in the building process. It’s a 1976 Laguna S3. It is a major project that has had a complete frame swap with all Global West suspension added. It now has Wilwood brakes, 496 BBC, TREMEC 6-speed, and all redone interior. I have not had a chance to work on it in quite some time. Right now I am installing a Painless wiring kit. g3chevy has come over a couple of times and that’s a great help.

Every Friday morning once the snow melts, Hagerty has a "Cars and Caffeine" at the home office.  They have already announced they are cancelled until further notice.  Many of the other local gatherings are also on hold.

I personally wish I had more time to work on my stuff, but right now I am playing the Waiting Game.  I am waiting on the machine shop to balance my engine, and my body guy to have room to work on my stuff!

Havent even touched the car in a month or 2.  Still need to order a couple more parts so I can start putting the 6.0 back together so I can get it in the car, but this virus has everything shutdown so the money to buy parts has been redirected to pay bills Head Bang

No car shows! GPHW92h

3 years ago: Hooker longtubes and stainless to the back

2 years ago: 273 rear end swapped out for a 342

Last year:  High grade rear bumper and strip swapped out to bring car back to S3 appearance
               Engine and transmission rebuild

This year:   So far; Control arm bushings and new shock absorbers on all 4 corners

Next:          New rubber all around

Wish I could afford to do something about the four different shades of medium orange on four different panels

Here in my neck of the woods there was "test" show put on by a local car club just yesterday and this is the result. It appears things are looking up. And here's a pic of mine to add to the "online" show.

I'm just itching to get your Laguna on the road! Hurry up and get the Camaro done so we can get back on this beast!

Thanks!  Mine are 17x9's.  275/40 series up front, 275/50 in the back.  Probably going to do 50 in front also -- 40's seem kinda small to me. Smile

Yeah, I like tires with a little sidewall height for a better ride and look. Our cars have plenty of room inside the wheel wells for just about any wheel/tire combination.

This is what I went with. 315/35/20 tires bolt right up. They have some side wall and you can get some good speed rated tires in that size. The front tires are 275/40/20 so the front and rear are the same height. g3chevy, come help me put the engine in my Camaro, then we can get the Laguna finished before I disappear again.

Now that's what I'm talking about...meat on those tires! I'm in for doing the motor on the Camaro now that I got my motor broke in on the El Camino. So I'm guessing you already picked up the LS7 from the machine shop?

Yes it is at home now. I remember when I was going to put this in the Laguna. I am glad I built the BBC for the Laguna and saved this for the Camaro. Zoom in on the picture and look at some of the details.
