Default Dime Rocket Fantasy

What's yours?
Not sure if it would work? Don't quite know how to proceed?
Give me a call. We'll kick it around.
I've got a big shop in a small town. Not much going on locally.

Hey, I can spend other people's money with the best of them, but that's really not my style.
For someone who's not somewhat hands on , themselves, a dime could easily turn into a dime and a nickle. Probably have plenty of change left from a quarter anyway, though.
I do most of this stuff myself, so that helps too.

I'll play:
1980 Buick Century 4Dr Sedan
231 V6 with a Dualjet
Fits V/SA at 3250 lbs
Metric 200, access to a cheap Chevette converter (Dacco B10)
7.5 rear with 4.56s, 26" slicks
Stock 60k shortblock, heads (current running/driving car)
1 1/2" headers (Hedman street headers)

Not sure where to start with cam/converter, thinking baseline to just get it down the strip and see what it'll do? Maybe a regrind? What I listed part-wise is what I actually have available right now. Maybe I could get it to the index then upgrade as funds allow, but if nothing else just get it making passes. That was a downfall of my past failures.

Workable? Thoughts/ideas?

The answer is...None .It's not in the class guide. That is the first step with this different stuff.
