From reading the magazine, it seems Johnny has a large interest in the thrid generation Chevelle's and Laguna's.  Loved the 1973 SS Chevelle G-Machine last year.

This 1973 Chevlle SS 454 4-spd is getting some decent bids on eBay (Item number: 220099567862).  

In addition, I thought I'd throw you what my two look like as I think these are great cars.

Thanks for the compliment.  I would suggest you try www.chevytalk.org, look for Doc's 1973-1977 Chevelles forum under the Chevelle-Beaumont heading, about half-way down.  Thats where us 3rd Gen's hand out, where you could mention your intention regarding your Laguna.

Will be on the Hot Rod Power Tour in a couple of weeks.  Johnny was there a few years back.  Hope to see him again.

I've never really been the biggest fan of that body style, but yours look pretty dang good.

You can almost never find them for sale in decent shape. If I could find one for under $10k in the same shape as pictured below, I'd buy it.

I had a 75 and a 77. They were great vehicles.My grandfather and I built my first with a 350 v-8 but 2 days before getting my license my sister borrowed it to go to work due to her car not starting and totaled it on her way. So hence my 77 was bought. But college got in the way of building it. There are 2 on craigslist in washington state right now

Hey Johnny, I sent you an email about my 74 400 CID with 27K original a couple of month ago, and you printed it!!! Thanks, that was cool. Unfourtunatley, the car is still off the road, but I'm hoping to cure that by end of summer.  
Does anyone have a good source for aftermarket suspension parts, i.e. upgrades, springs, tubular control arms and such? the car is completly stock now I'm starting with the important stuff first, suspension, brakes, and chassis.

Well, you know how the saying goes.  Opinion are like you know what, every bodies got one.  Some of use have found these cars to be an affordable way to get our fix.  Trust me, I'd love to have a 68 RS/SS Camaro, but I'd rather feed my kids.

Just picked up a '75 Laguna S3 for a project car. It's pretty solid, but we're having a tough time lining up stuff. It may take a few months, but we'll roll it into the mag by year's end. I wish this forum would let us post pix.

Hey Johnny,

You can post pics, they just have to be hosted on another site.
