    The color is stock GM circa 1970. It is called FATHOM BLUE. The motor runs well, but 600hp ain't that much anymore on the street. The exhaust is 3 inch mandrel bent tube with SPIN TECH mufflers. They are the best muffler you will buy. They sound better than Flowmasters INMO and they are egineered to not have all the resonance that Flowmasters do-these are truly amazing how quiet inside the car is as opposed to outside. I am either going to add HILBORN EFI http://www.hilborninjection.com/prod...Id=56&CatId=37 next or add a set of ARIAS hemi heads, Arao's http://www.araoengineering.com/Chevy/chevybb.htm or just build a 1964 hardtop and start over with a much larger engine. We'll see, I have to finish my boat first.

    Its also fun with the poverty grandma caps w/ redlines and stock hood-get some weird looks.

    Wow! That's no stock Hybrid Synergy Drive you've got there! Great car man. Did you buy the frame and body separate, or did you separate them yourself for restoration?
