Welcome,
A veggie oil Chevette would be pretty cool. I have not seen any Chevette's running around in years. Are these your daily drivers or toys? What kind of mileage do they have on them?

I daily drive my one of I've had in the summer time, keeps the miles off my z71 and my Duramax. Tranny grenaded this summer and I tried rebuilding it but I had some broken hard parts so I played hell trying to find a total replacement tranny. Found a complete runner driver car down south and it came with a low mile spare tranny so I snagged it and had it shipped to Michigan, it should be here Friday. My original vette has 140xxx on it and my new one has 110xxx.

Where u located in Michigan?

I'm over near Ludington, but I commute to Ferris four days a week for school. I'm kind of a late bloomer, I finished high school in '83, and I'm now a college freshman.
