New From Salem, City of witches!

Postby 71Scamper » Wed Jul 17, 2013 6:03 pm

Hey I'm a new member from the city of witches Salem. I own a 71 Scamp that I have been working on getting road worthy, and pretty looking, for 5 years now. I'm almost there! Conservatively, I'm looking at next spring to fire the 340 up for the first time since rebuild. Some purist would hate this, but I've converted to a 5 speed to make life for my little 340 easier on the highway. I will post pictures soon as I'm done situating the body for paint.
It is what it is!

Welcome to the site! Hope you enjoy it. Some good folks hang out here.

A 5 speed... I'm envious.

Welcome to MassMopar from another A-body owner!
I like that style of Scamp a lot, those were neat cars!

No purist hate here, there's nothing like 5 speeds to row through...

Thanks everyone! I will have some pics soon. I'm just finishing up the engine bay so I can mock up the drivetrain. Need to fab up a custom cross member for the tranny and cut the hole for the shifter.

So it's been a while since the last time I've been on here. Life kinda gets in the way sometimes lol! Well my buddy finished the fine sanding of the car today and jammed it. Paint gets laid down tomorrow! I'm like a little kid in a candy shop right now! I definitely will have pics coming soon. I promise this time :)
