Referee certified LS1/6speed 85 SS montecarlo

OK i know my camera skills were lacking. theres a bunch more videos on my channel of this car..most filmed by other people so u dont have to feel cheated. in my defense i was nervous in the beginning and excited at the end ..in addition to trying to film with a flip camera not really looking through its tiny little screen. if anyone can feel me on that 100% homebuilt 85 SS monte. LS1, 6 speed, OBD2 conversion. complete drivetrain, harness, fuel system, dash and other misc. parts out of a 99 SS Camaro. the Camaro only had 47k miles when it came into my possesion. rest of the car including heater, lights, wipers, cruise control and things like that all being powered from the Camaros harness/controls. none of the 1985 harness remains except the dome light circuit. t GM A-body 12 bolt reareand with 4.11:1 gears and a true track posi fitted with the ss Camaros 12" rear disc brakes. shortened upper trailing arms and adjustable lowers with spherical rod ends to fit the older/beefier/wider rearend. still a work in progress at this point, but to me getting the referee to approve my work was a big deal and a huge step. this car passes california smog legally! go green!...well as green as you can go with a full size, v8 powered car thats built for thrashing.

Monte Back in action.....Gbody Drift 2015
sonoma drift 3 11 15 Monte wasnt ready....new UMI sway bars contacting spindle at almost full lock no time to correct or swap back, desperate need of a panhard bar and rear upper heim joints(noticed when swapping outers to roto joints, front bobbing like a cadillac, and the 350 i stuck in to get it going pails in comparison to the big block that was in it before. wheel hopping, spin outs and all felt great to be back in the Monte. planning on fixing everything and LS2 before i bust it back out again. he deserves it. and the orange has to go.
