New guy here just checkin in and saying hey! I have always loved elkys and it is great that someone finally created a forum for us owners. I have had three elkys so far a 78 (R.I.P.) that saved my a$$ in a bad wreck, my 83 that replaced the wrecked one and i had a 85 for a while but sold it. i am currently collecting parts and building a "pro-touring" type machine with the 83 and hope to have it mechanically done this summer! Any info on posting pics let me know. :lol:

ElT-1, welcome to the Forum. I just joined a few weeks ago and I just bought an '83 El Camino a few days ago!!!
Welcome to the board and our "swelling" membership. Just, curious...how'd you find us. Just checking to see if any of my broadcasting has paid off... :lol:

acauth, that is pne of the cleanest lt-1 conversions i have seen, great job. did you convert the factory wiring harness or use an aftermarket one? i am in the process of converting the factory one so i can use my Tech 2 for codes and so i can use the speedo cluster from the donor trans am. the one thing i did not take into consideration was the f-body acsessories are different than the vette ones and require you to notch the cross member which i am not too crazy about. so i guess i am going to track down vette components. in the meantime i got an a/c delete bracket just so i could get things running. one last thing, how well do those seats work in the car. i want buckets and the ones in your car look pretty damn good. great car!
later, E.P. :D
