    whats are you Sbody plans for 2017

    as above just curious to see what people are up to?

    with mine I'll carry on with my underbody resto, hope to get some of the paint work resprayed and also to replace my coilovers.

    Want to go to a few events in the summer and also as many local meets as I can too

    Probably continue to stare at it wistfully out the window while spending whatever spare pennies I can on building the V8.

    Kids are great. They also suck (all the cash out of my wallet).

    Underseal it in spring. Change the coilovers for some new ones. Get it on track.

    Get mine roadworthy and perhaps drive it a few months over the system.

    Forgot to add gauges for mine, water temp, oil temp and pressure... not sure if it'll happen this year though, want stack gauges but cheap they are not.
