Below is a picture of my car when I first got it.  Following that is what it looks like now. It ran pretty good and then I discovered the block had a crack down the left side which I later found out was pretty typical for this motor. Needless to say I now have a rebuilt motor, transmission and working on the rest. The car has no setimental value like so many it just happened to be the first one I saw when I began to look locally for one to rebuild. I have learned a lot and have a lot more to learn while rebuilding my car. Baby steps seems to  be the norm, hopefully I will be finished with it in 6 months or so.
