Hi,
Just started my LSR Firebird build January 1st.
Planning on running GC/B this year and see how it goes.
Going to run a fuel injected LS3, muncie 4 speed with a 9".
I will start with some pictures and add as I go.
I am bulding the car with alot of help from my wife's cousin so I was thinking of naming it something like "Just Cuz" Maybe add something to it to relate to the cousin aspect.


Thanks
Trent
Setting the engine. Note the front suspension is rebuilt with new QA1 coilovers and all urethane bushings.


Modified the transmission crossmemeber to accept the Muncie 4 speed.

It will earn it's name as time passes.

None of us are close to your project.

It's your project and it relates to you and not to us.

Do you ask the public for help naming your first born?

If the answer is YES you don't deserve the kid.

Same with the car.

Freud,
Honestly I wasn't given the oportunity to name my first two children,  my wife took care of it.
She most likely won't be naming the car though.

Thanks for the well wiishes.
Trent

Now Freud, you be nice to my neighbor.

Trent, welcome aboard.

Think about your influences, think about where you're from, and think long term.

Think about what could eventually used as a brand.

Also, you're running in a class with a 235 record.  Start putting together the safety items first - they get expensive.  Chute, cage, fire suppression - you'll need to build to the 235 spec, even if you don't think your car will hit it.

Also, take note of where chutes are attached on other Camaros and Firebirds.

We'll get together over a burger - drop me a line.

Think about a digital name -- like 486, 952,1084 or such.  And check with Chuck Kalbach to see if it's available.

Good luck,
