i called the machine shop and transmission shop tonight. neither one has started on my stuff yet. if i can at least get the engine parts back by the end of June i hope to have it together by the end of July but not sure if it is going to happen.
the reason i had to delay this project is that i bought out a guys collection of Oldsmobile cars and parts. he had 5 cars and many loads of parts for 70-72 cutlass and 442s. the cars i got were 2 1970 442 W-30s, 70 442, 71 442 convertible, and a 71 Cutlass SX convertible. i have to sell most of it but hope to keep one of the 442 W-30 cars and restore it for a future project. i should still be enjoying the Jetfire this fall. we are excited to get it done.
