Hello i am 15 and a sophmore in HS i really enjoy cars/engines and decided to finally register to this forum. i just bought my 1st elky it's a 1981 bone stock basically, 267/TH200 Bench seat..nothing special..I have been around the board for a little awhile and decided it's time to join up..I have some serious plans for it
I about to build a 355 for it right now in my garage on my own
TH350
7.5 3.73posi
Paint dark green
bolt on hood w/ 2 inch cowl
Bucket seats
new carpet
Cd player+new speakers
New wheels+tires.

And some of you read this list and some of you may think wow this kid is rich and is having his parents pay for all of this. NO i am not i work 3 jobs in the summer and currently work 2 right now as we speak, i made alot of money off my last car (1972 Cutlass Supreme350rocket68,000original)
I cleaned it up real nice and resold it. I don't have any pictures of my elky right now but i am working on that with my cousin.

Here is a picture of my last/first car and no i do not have my liscense yet i'll probably be around alot from now on. Hope to meet some great guys and some great info from this board. 8)

Welcome to ECC/NECOA Eric!

There are lots of 5th gen owners here to answer your questions. That new 355 should really wake up your Elky. Tell your cousin to hurry up and get some pictures of that 81 so you can post them here.

Dark Green........ GM makes a real nice dark green for their trucks. It was used in the late 90's. The color is called Dark Caribe Metallic. If you go to the member cars, bottom of page 7, you will see what a 5th generation looks like dark green. Kinda partial to the color myself. :D
