Not hard to find at all.

No part for a Camaro is hard to find. Nothing.

Hmmmm...me thinks I have been tricked.

He also said the drive shaft would have to be shortened a bit to make it fit. so the plan was to drive the original 3 speed and small rear end until they break, then replace them with a T-5 and posi rear end.

I would just like to be able to reach the darned pedals without having to slip down under the steering wheel to do so. Also need to tighten up the slop in the steering. Feels like a mini bird....lol

Thanks Revision. We are now up here in TN looking at property. The promising piece I was interested in that was 10 acres with 4 properties on it, we attempted to walk today. We donated a bit of blood to the cause. Briar bushes galore! Don't think this is a good candidate for any bus unfortunately. The property is in a great little location but it is on a grade and it was challenging to even walk it. We made it to 3 of the 4 wrecked residences and they are true teardowns. The 4th was just not possible due to the briars.
Still a cool piece with one homestead spot with an awesome view over the water, but it is not fit for any bus.
We are off to the North eastern side of TN tomorrow to look at a few other possibilities.
