Posting PicturePictures taken with digital cameras are huge files and take for ever to load specially for those with dial up. They really slow the board down not counting taking up a tremendous amount of band width. You'll have to reduce the size before you post them..here is a free progam that is real easy to use..go here and down load it for free. Resize them to 800 X 600 pixels...Thank you
Well I just got her home today, got it for free from a friend in Michigan. Needs a lot of work, but there's enough still there to make it a drag car. I plan on back halfing it and putting my 519 into. Will take some time, but will be fun.
have always wanted to build an astre,ever since sbc Vegas were all over the streets in the 70's. watched them rust away in peoples yards in the 80's, and all disappear in the 90's. then i wondered about the sunbirds. I know there's information about vega/astre v8 conversions, but haven't seen too many sunbirds. but i guess it all comes down to machine fab and $$$ availability. i like the power to weight ratio you're talkin. so did Bob Maxey a few yrs ago. can't wait to see your progress!
Thanks yeah the nice thing about the sunbird and vega's is they use the same kit's, they are both H bodies and all the suspension and mounts are the same. Really from what I understand is the only difference is the body it's self. Talked with the guy's at S&W race cars and they have the rear half kit for it that was designed by Grumpy Bill Jenkins himself and he used it in his pro stock Vega he ran. It's really not a bad buy for about 825.00 you get frame rails,tubs,all the bracket's,brace's, ladder bar's,and a set of coil over shock's.
not sure yet, was thinking of using a set of 29x10.5-15W's. But not real sure these tire size really get to me sometimes. They say tread width is 11" and you look at a ruler and look at the tire and they don't really look close. I would like something around 16" across. Really don't want to go lager than 30" tall.
