The 2.02 heads are expensive and hard to find. A set of "Vortec" heads will flow as well, and can be found anywhere. They will require a different intake and valve cover, however. Back in "the day", 283's powered an assortment of vehicles in every sort of motorsport. In NHRA stock classes, I've seen them in the 11's and 12's in tri-five Chevies, and later full sized cars. A tall rear, and a 4L80E trans will make it pretty quick. Lots of books on the subject out there.

Hello all,
     I have started working on one of my long awaited projects.  When I was 8 years old my father bought me my first car.  A 1957 Chevy Station wagon.  We took most of it apart and had it blasted, and primered when I was around 18.  We worked on this car together and this is where I learned to love cars and do the things I can do.  I am working on the body work this winter and will eventually need to get it painted and get a new engine and transmission.  I have both a 350 tranny (that needs a rebuild) and the original 283 V8 but the Heavy wagon will need many more horses than the stock 283 will be willing to put out.  Maybe some 202 heads and a cam /intake and 4 barrel.  I just wanted to put some feelers out in case anyone has or comes across anything, has some double hump heads lying around, or has any necessities or 1957 parts in general.  Thanks!!

Mike D

So, last week I realized that I had several hundred pictures of the build process, but basically none of the finished car, other than on the dyno.  Since it was nice out Saturday, Jeff and I hung out and took a ton of pictures.  Here are some of my favorites.

These are at the parking garage at work.  You can see how the paint looks different in different light.

I also played around with some of the different settings on the camera

There is a place a couple minutes from my house that has some old buildings.  We called the property owner and he was nice enough to let us in to take a few pictures.  There were probably 30 different buildings that he had moved from around Virginia and North Carolina onto his property.  He holds auctions every now and then - it'd be neat to see what gets sold at those.
