Those are terrible circumstances to get anything. I'm sorry to hear about that.

On the other hand, you have a potential dragster in one of your old cars. I'd drop in the lightest car you got, throw on some slicks, and build that beast! You just got yourself a pet monster.

I'd like to see it go to a Chevelle, don't see too many late model engines in them, it'd be different.

The problem is insurance won't pay for the replacement LS7 if someone crashes into you and totals the car. That or the insurance cost will be higher as you put in a hi-po engine. How can you afford all those cars/engines? What do your parents do?
