Went down to Texas desert and rescued my grandfathers old 1982 C20 292 4spd. Become a family affair got it up and running. Now my 13 year old has claimed the truck as her own. So may go red with paint and looking at aftermarket AC. Also see several of you have added 2500 Silverado rims from 2000-2010 so want to go that route for some aluminum wheels. Just looking to learn from all of you and appreciate all the knowledge.

Great thing to do with your kids Daniel, I did that with mine, they still talk about how fun it is. Guy around here has a 292 in a 37 chevy pickup, with a small turbo, does 12'S in the quarter mile. Don't tell this to the kids.......yet. Oh yeah, my fav exhaust sound, split exhaust six cyl.

My 292 has some pretty nice hand made gas welded headers made for it and there split and I have duals on it. Sounds pretty neat really always wanted the 4 barrel intake

I wanted to do the 4 barrel but something cool about running the Monojet. Honestly might build up another 292 to hotrod for another project truck. This one has been claimed by the 13 yr old. I love the square bodies I grew up in them so they do hold a special place in my heart.
