Default Under the index for under a grand!

You read it right, this winters project is going to be something that should do away with all of the excuses for not being able to afford to go Stock Eliminator racing!
One of my racing buddys just bought a 1979 Pontiac GP out of the local shopper for 500 bucks and through some good scrounging, good dealing and(hopefully) good luck we are going to try and get it under the U/SA index for 1000 bucks or less(or more) not counting the price of the car.
We've got it in the garage and up in the air so stay tuned for updates.

Let's make this a classracer project car. I know we all have extra used parts that we will never use and we can donate. Gauges, gears,tires,shifters,shocks,plug wires,coils,ignition boxes,etc. I will donate an 8" th200 converter if others are interested in helping. What do you think, Billy?

Hi Bob! Merry Christmas to you and the Mrs!
I appreciate your offer but I'm going to try and hold this thing to my strict budget cap and I know that there are some things that I'm going to catch flak for already.
I like the idea of a "Project Class Racer" though. I'd be up for that. I'll have to run it past Kenny.

Kudos, Billy! This is one of my "favs" right now. Ridiculously low power rating, cheap and not too difficult ot find, RWD, V8, available in 2bbl-4bbl-auto-stick.

I like the idea of a Class Racer "dime rocket" project! It's not too critical that it be a killer car, but fast enough to qualify at national events and not be first round fodder in class elims.

Sounds Like a great idea, "Project Class Racer". I will start a thread and stick it to the top. I don't want to take away from Billy's build.

Bob, thanks for the input. Glad to see Jack and Billy on board. I am sure other members will also join in.
