Back to where it all began! My first car was a 1972 Chevelle and I’ve wanted another ever since.

This one was built in Van Nuys, California and spent its life between California and Texas (El Paso) where I bought it in February of 2019. Since that time she’s undergone a major “Pro Touring” conversion in preparation for this year's Hot Rod Power Tour (June 6-14, 2019).

These photos are of it now!

The following picts are in decending order from May 1, 2019 to February 28, 2019. This was amongst my quickest and most expensive builds.

Yes, this one gets the “badass” treatment but until it’s assembled, tuned, dyno’d and in the car here are a few of the goodies going into it.

Losing the mix-matched white/black and going traditional black with some updated goodies like bolstered seats and red oak wheel. Oh, and check out the SS Shifter setup for a 4-Speed Automatic!

Completely tearing it down and sanding to the base proved this desert car not only had zero rust but zero body repairs as well.

Anyone who’s ever driven an old muscle car can attest, handling is so bad it borders dangerous. The entire suspension was discarded and replaced with a custom pro-touring design.

The first attempt to drive resulted in several stalls due to faulty wiring, so the better part of a day was spent rewiring the doghouse.

Here she is in El Paso Texas; an abandoned project just waiting to be resurrected.
