Just let me know when you want to pick them up and I'll meet you out at my shop in Stafford. That would give you a chance to look at some of the other stuff I have a decide if you need any of it.

Or I will bring them to the next meet if you remind me a few days ahead of time.

BTW, I'm going to have a massive third-gen garage sale soon. I'm going to be moving out of my shop and I won't have much room for all that stuff for a while so a bunch of it has to go.
If it breaks, make it stronger.
If it doesn't, try harder.

Are you getting a new shop or just getting rid of your current one?

I will be getting a new one, but it won't be right away, so I need to get rid of a lot of the bulkier things...
    Hatches
    92' Z-28 dash board
    TPI intakes
    Suspension components
    High Rise '92 Z-28 wing
    Loads of misc small block Chevy parts
    and lot and lots of obscure little parts that were stripped of the 3 third gens I have parted out.

Not much progress lately.

The engine is almost ready to come out. Need to cut the exhaust pipes because the exhaust manifold bolts are rusted on. and need to remove the torque arm and disconnect the tranny from the drive line then it should be ready to come out.

Once I get the engine out Im going to repaint the entire engine bay back to its original color.

Eventually I want the car to look something like this:

Made some progress today.

Cut the exhaust out

Purchased a 700R4 with a corvette servo and 6000 miles on a rebuild for $500.

Now I need an engine....

GOt the ENGINE!

Went and picked up a 350 today (l98) the owner claims it was bored to a 355 but I am yet to confirm that. It came out of an 89 GTA. It was sitting for awhile so it is very dirty but it does turn over.

Going to get it hot tanked

Going to to purchase a rebuild kit

Going to get a cam, headers and exhaust.

Updates soon

Nice!

BTW, take a look at my "Garage Sale" thread on TGO and see if you need anything.
