Well... It's like this. I used the Rat Fink mug as a reference for the pics so nobody could call BS
That mug was given to me for my Birthday by a good friend. Those pics were taken under my carport hence the sun and shadows.
Next up is to pull the engine and detail under the hood.
Hard to tell in the pics but the hood was removed earlier that afternoon.
Will post pics. She ain't no show car but with the Big Block she sure is fun.

Well Guy's,
Today is the day, I attempted to find what's making a annoying sound from pass. side front wheel area ~ It's driving me crazy ! I took off the center cap and "Flop" A lug nut hit my foot. " What the H~ll ". 1 broken lug nut Humm.. ???? and the others loose, this prompted me to check ALL lugs.....And again ...ALL loose ...WOW! I could of had a real bad day if any wheels came off.

Moral of the story Pay close attention to the " Little things then ACT "

Got a $24 lube and oil change today at local Chevy dealer and used it as an excuse to do a thorough check of underbody while it was on their lift. Man, do I have a lot of grease and rust to remove!!! Otherwise, no further damage from another winter.
