The Chevelle’s ready for next year as is, but that Camaro... hoo boy.

Brakes still aren’t fixed. Shop’s been super busy. About ready to say screw it and just go to discs up front. I’ve about had it with these drums needing attention every year. Plus, 454 and Drums don’t really mix well.

Also, the thing has a bad, and I mean BAD, knock. It’s had it for a while, but it’s getting more and more pronounced. Probably a dead lobe on the cam/junk lifter, because I didn’t know it was a flat tappet until two years ago.

It sucks, because that’s money that I don’t have, don’t know if my grandfather has, and even if he does, I can’t possibly ask him to spend it. So who the hell knows what’s going to happen. We brought it back to our house for the Winter so the Grand National can go in Pap’s garage.
