    I keep hearing Walmart saying they are trying to compete with Amazon. The first thing they need to do is hire all new website developers and sell more things themselves. I was looking to buy a Western Digital 8TB internal hard drive and can't even find it on Walmart.com. I found a 6TB one for highter amount that Amazon has it for and it's not even sold by walmart, It's sold by a 3rd party.

    That's why Google is worth twice as much as was mart.without trucks, drivers,retail stores nationwide or one fourth of the overhead. Brilliant way mart.brilliant!!

    Walmarts website looks like it's 20 years old.

    Thankfully I can do more than drive. Right now I'm working on this in my spare time.69 stingray with a 64 rear window 6.2 liter I made it a wide body to accommodate 2014 rear suspension and wide tires getting ready to prime and paint then it gets side pipes and custom interior. Only one I know of and I know everything there is to know about vettes.driving is OK though. IMG_20180219_141227.jpg

    LS swap? Seriously so overplayed. If you want it to really impress and run like a raped ape you would cram a coyote in there! Lol just kidding, ;-) nice we will need progress pics along the way

    The L s isn't in there yet. I'm trying to work a deal on a zl1 camaro motor and tranny with a friend at the junkyard cuz he just got a totaled zl 1 in.if I can secure that im sure it will have plenty of power.the motor I have in it is no slouch so I may leave it. But everyone wants an ls so it will be worth m more with the zl 1 motor. I currently have a stock looking fuel injected 383 stroker with bigger injectors bigger cam bigger everything ported and polished 202 racing heads good for a solid 500 HP.but I want the 6.2.don't have a lot of pics from the beginning of the build but I'll put up what I can find. This is from about six weeks ago until now.i had to make the front cap cuz it didnt have one.

    Oh well I tried. You have to look at the attached files for some reason. Note the cobra mold i made in the background of one of the pics.it has junk piled all over it but I can build those too.I was building Ferrari Daytona's and still have one on the other side of the cobra mold.I still have it because it so much like a real one Ferrari sued me so I can't sell that one. It has a 91 zr1 motor with a bnm blower. Probably froze up by now. Been sitting there about 15 yrs.so I make the cobras six inches wider so its not identical and I won't get sued.besides I had a real one that burned up in my old shop and it was so cramped with two people that I always wished it was about six inches wider.so now it is.fits a c4 chassis with any drivetrain you want.
