Hey all, I was here years ago, maybe 10yrs... haven't been around much except lurking.
Just in need of advise on some parts & any info out there on my elco Ive had since 93.
It doesn't race much anymore, but you never know. only 3 times in the past 3 years.
It used to see the track every other weekend, for 10+ years
The car still sees lots of street use ( weather permitting)

car: 79 elcamino, 383, 9.1, ford 9" 3.55
currently with a 350TH/. 3500 stall (original 4 speed car)
still have a richmond T5, thinking of putting that back in or going 5 speed.

3500ft elev... ET 12.87 @ 105

photos later

So, Im terrible here, waiting so long to post. heres some pics of the car .
I am still running stock front control arms. looking to replace them & looking for suggestions without spending an arm & leg, if thats even possible.
So keep in mind, the car is mostly street driven, but it will see track time. Just not the track time it saw years ago when racing every other weekend for points.
I currently run a ford 9" out back with South side machine control arms...need to get sugestions on the front, as the stock bushings are done.
thanks
