    This January will be 2 years since the Impala came apart to get the camaros engine and other misc stuff.


    Honestly a few weeks worth of work to someone ambitious.

    Unfortunately I am unable to do this scale of work myself, so I relied on one of my closest friends and his shop.

    After finally getting the engine in and running and most everything done but the procharger install, the piping and some misc... she got put away again in a trailer last October. She was put away so thay another longer term trans-am could get some work done... a Was supposed to "finish installing the big stuff, so it can get shipped out."

    Well another Ociber later and she's still in the trailer and that Transam has had minimal progression.

    So being that the owner and person working on my impala was one of my best friends, I've opted to avoid the conversation... knowing that I'm am asshole and when I get upset, emotional or feel taken advantage of... the level of ASSHOLE goes up...

    So I act like I don't even own the car. When I stop at the shop (because I got him the contract for all of our PD and Highway vehicles) it's never discussed and I hide behind a painful smile...

    Hopefully one day... by the time my son drives... ill get to show him my 1996 Impala SS.

    I mean, if they don't know its a semi priority for you, they may work on it.

    I've been friends with him for over 20 years... he knew it was a priority for me... for 4 different events in ocmd... and even to bring my son home from the hospital. Its not a matter if not knowing. It's a matter of knowing, "Larry will understand...so we can keep putting him on the back burner."

    I 100% can relate with you. I've dealt with two shops with my Trans Am who sat on my car for years until I pulled it out of both. My advice is to give him a deadline or it's leaving. There are other shops out there who will make it a priority and will take your money.

    Best of luck, I was hoping there was an actual update on this project!

    The difference is this is a person who was one of my closest friends for over 20 years... a shop I've been very involved with for the same amount of time and the previous owner who built the engine for me for the camaro and was also a close friend who tragically died in 2016...

    So it's more than just a shop... and unfortunately I don't have a middle speed... its either polite... or dick...


    And last thing I want to do is be a dick... why??? Because I feel that even if the friend ship has to end when this is finally done... im not gonna be the one who disrespected the friendship or relationship with the shop...


    And before anyone says be polite... its something that I know I can't do when I feel like I've been taken advantage of...
