Fantastic that you got to drive it around some and found no major issues! Better get the hood on soon or your cover will be blown!

The walk around video is great, car sounds so good, and I love the Woodward pics- it's such a cool Mild vs. Wild story of 2 extremes- the 64 so nice and mild then the Beastcayne, so mean and wild! Curious- you got a splash of fuel- what do you run for fuel? is the compression high in the LS engine?

Lol
Yeah guys I was so anxious to drive it I wasn't worried about the hood being on it at the time lol! I honestly thought there would be some car people out-my hunch was wrong! I met my buddy at an Arby's it's kind of a secluded spot,my buddy wanted a ride and when I fired it up there was a guy headed to his car. It stopped him dead in his tracks and he walked over. He told me his stories of his 67 SS 396 Chevelle he bought New for $2700 and how his car sounded -that mine sounded like it has a bit more cam than his did. He asked what engine it was and seemed a bit puzzled when I told him.Later we stoped at a local hot spot and it was dead. One guy stopped buy in a hopped up diesel ford truck, the 3 of us talked for a bit no real questions about my car and we parted ways. No worries the next time the car is out in public the hood will be on it an I will have the wheels painted with the poverty caps on it. I love the look the draglites give the car but it seems that even on a not so busy night the car got quite a few looks and more attention than I am used to.I think once it's done it will go back to an afterthought in conversation. I'm hoping I didn't blow my cover.Tim I couldn't help myself My Hoodluem mentality had to rid the Arby's of a hamburger helper problem before it got out of "Hand"! Ha Damn Street Urchin I am lol.

Thanks for all the comments guys and thanks for the comments you left for me on my YouTube videos Kevin,I would love to build you a copy of the "Beast" thanks for thinking about that. Send it on over I can hook you up!!I love the observation of the contrast of the 64 and my 68,my buddy said he was bringing the Slocayne and he would look for me in my Gocayne.
When I got "Fuel" I just run 93 pump gas.The compression on my engine is 10.8,no need for anything exotic yet I just got in the habit of calling gasoline fuel years ago when I used to tag along with friends headed to the track. We would load up and stop and fill up the duelly on the way. My buddy would say we gotta stop and get some fuel.
Here's a few shots of the underside of the hood I'm in the process of painting it.
As a side note thanks to all members and non members for wiewing this thread.In the last month you all have viewed this 960 times since December 28. Much appreciated I will update everyone when more progress is made.
Larry

7999270D-BC2B-4DED-815D-044CD9991D4F.jpegToday is February 25th and the car is done for the moment. Here is the surprise I was talking about earlier in my thread. Long story short I got an invite to put my car in the Singlefinger Speed Shop display at the 2018 Detroit Autorama. I finished painting the underside of the hood and reinstalled that along with new rocker moldings. I spent some time fixing little things here an there that bothered me from a couple years ago (interior trim and rear window molding) etc. I cleaned/detailed/touched up the car top to bottom,inside and out and while i was at it Installed the Borla mufflers on the car. Its a bit more throaty but not obnoxious!The guys at Singlefinger we’re a little iffy on my sleeper theme as they usually have late 20’s to 40’s Hot Rods with the occasional early 60’s Custom thrown in the mix in there display. They mentioned that a Drag car theme would be cool.I thought a FAUX Super Stocker would fit the bill. A quick consultation with a friend of mine for some direction and I was off to the “races”! I did a bit of scrounging and a friend had some Centerline Auto Drag 3.5” wide wheels with some old Pro-Trac front runners he let me borrow That look the part.I purchased some repop vintage Dragstrip and speed part decals along with some 427 fender emblems. A pinstriper  friend of mine came over and lettered up my glass for me! I painted my Draglites and installed them along with my poverty caps on the rear. I didn’t want to stick the decals to my fenders so i stuck them to some thin refrigerator magnet material and viola easy on and off and when I’m done with the show I can put them on my storage cabinets. Set up is next Thursday March 1st for me I’m looking forward to the show this year and will make sure to take pictures for your enjoyment!
Here’s some shots of the parts and transformation

Man I’m drooling! Your car looks so awesome with the rocker trim and the painted rims and poverty caps! Love the “dress up” idea for the show and can’t wait to see it clean with all 4 poverty caps and no stickers after the show.

Thanks so much gentlemen for the comments and praise, it is much appreciated! I’m sure I’ll have a blast as usual down at the show.Kevin thanks so much for your comments! I too am really looking forward to getting the car back home from the show and getting the gook off of it. Putting the finishing touches on it with the front wheel set etc ! I get the super stock theme and it was fun but I am very anxious to get it looking plain and simple with NO FLUFF hehe! Like Dan said “Stealth Biscayne” well said! Tim you time is coming rapidly sooo looking forward to the fire up and finishing of that BA 67!!! Oh and don’t worry- Im pretty sure our sedan secret is pretty safe.Most of the people I have run across in the general public just think my car is an Impala lol. I’ve even had some questions from younger people thinking it’s a Galaxie and a mid 60’s Chevelle lol. Or sometimes the “who’s big Chevy” Ha. 

Ryan if you do make it to the show, it would be great to meet you! I’ll be in the basement- Autorama Extreme.

Jim thank you very much for the kind words I had no idea you were eyeing my build -much appreciated 

Once again thanks a million to each and everyone of you for your support and comments here. It really means a lot to me you all “Get It” I will take plenty of pictures and keep everyone “Posted” as the show progresses.
Larry

Great Job Larry. I love the decals, what a great idea with the magnets! Also the B/S, really fits when to tell someone it's just a 307 with a powerglide, lol. Have fun at the show, I think you will be amazed at the attention it gets. In true sleeper street racer fashion, resist the temptation to open the hood.
