This is my wife and her 496 Chevelle. Pump gas, flat tappet,dual plane, 3:31 gears, 3500 stall,full Exhaust, 3800 lbs, old ET Streets. She uses it to get groceries and takes it to her Mary Kay appointments. All three of our kids LOVE riding in the back and going cruising.
She averages 13 mpg on the highway with the 750 double.
Update 7/07- On 93 octane, the budget 496 made 548HP at 5900 rpm and 574TQ with big tube (2 1/4") headers at the crank on a Superflow 902 Dyno.
UPDATE 11/08- After three years and 5k street miles, 10 Dyno pulls, and 50+ passes at the track, Leah has run a best of 11.57 @115.48 on pump gas and M/T Drag radials, all motor. We tried a Powershot system on it 11/1/08, and with a 1/2 throttle launch went 11.07@120mph.

'72 Chevelle - UPDATE: Worst Sound System Install (fixed) - New Wiring,Carpet, Kick panels (vid 4)
See the current progress pictures here:
Install like a pro! Use SMD install tools - http://www.wcCarAudio.com !
Please watch video 1, 2, & 3 to see the mess i started with. The story:
My friend Moke came by and asked me to run the SMD DD-1 on his system and
get his gains set right. He said he just got it out the beat shop and it
sounded like shit. I told him to bring it by. It did, indeed, sound worse
then shit. I stopped everything i was doing and decided to fix this for
him. This is a terrible install and i am not sure which shop did it, but
they should be ashamed. Moke reportadly spent $5,000 on this install.
This video shows the new power, ground, speaker and RCA Cables being ran
and new carpet finally being installed. Also, the kick panels are
installed for good, i just need to hook up the amp rack and get them
playing! Subscribe and watch how this project turns out! He is getting
all brand new door and interior quarter panels as well as new white leather
on the seats so this thing should be super clean by the time i am finished!
Also, yes, it IS A 72. It has a 70 Front clip on it. Thanks!

polite comment, i will probably respond! Other ways to find me are listed

1973 Chevrolet Chevelle: Bank Robber's Special -- /BIG MUSCLE
For its season finale BIG MUSCLE heads to the mean streets of Trenton, NJ
to meet up with Sean Rich and his road warrior style 1973 Chevrolet
Chevelle. This particular car was constructed with the idea that if one
needed a getaway vehicle for which to rob a bank in, well then... this
would be the perfect candidate. This is not some big dollar, no holds
barred super car, but a ride built by its owner for the purpose of putting
a smile on his face every time the key was turned.
1970 Chevelle: Refined Muscle - /BIG MUSCLE
When it comes to muscle cars technology can be a double-edged sword. On the
one hand it can enhance all aspects of a vehicles drivability, but on the
other, it can strip the soul from a car in no time flat. Few people have
been able to blend new technology, luxury and speed into a package that
just flat-out works. Mark Bachman however is the exception. With a stunning
interior, loads of grunt and just about every modern convenience you could
ask for, his 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle has managed to blur the lines between
old and new.

I thought you might like a look at this very nice 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle
SS clone. It's powered by a 502 Big-block, backed by a Muncie four-speed,
and a 12 bolt rear with 3.42 Posi gears. It's painted in Cortez Silver and
has the SS stripes and badges. It's riding on aftermarket aluminum rims,
with a set of Hankook tires. They've also added a set of drilled and
slotted disc brakes up front, an aluminum radiator, air conditioning, and
more. This car is ready for you to hop in and go. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for taking a look!
