Ive got yet another project on my hands.....

Since I had enough fun with my "make fun of teaser threads" thread. Im starting a real thread. I picked this up today.

1972 Chevelle Malibu

It has a 307 V8 for now. I needs work obviously. The motor smokes quite abit. Looks like its burning oil.

Keeping the 307? If so why not a 350? Cheap and god only knows how many aftermarket parts for it.

66-67 notch back chevelles are my favorite, but they are harder to find.
