Good evening. Been a little while since logging on. Still wide open with work, and things I need to get done for the family. Fern, I hope the little lady is healing up well and back to normal soon. J178RED, Hope those tough roads are getting easier on ya.

Have several friends who raced recently at the WDRA and NHRA bracket finals a couple weeks ago and did well. One of em won the NHRA EV race of champions which sends him to the NHRA finals in Vegas. A couple others qualified for the WDRA Summit World Championships in their respective classes. A good friend of mine won the team captains race at WDRA bracket finals in Darlington as well, while his daughter grabbed runner up in the no box gamblers race. Really good to see friends doing well. I just hope they take it easy on me when I get back out there, hopefully this spring.

I spent some time over the weekend clearing out the stuff I've been storing in the trailer that's been keeping the Camaro company, and doing some trailer maintenance to insure it's road ready. Seems I may have forgotten how heavy cast iron cylinder heads are. Relocated a dozen of them from the trailer to the garage. Only a 40 foot walk, but every pound of iron made itself well known. I'll replace the flat/rotted tires and use the wheelbarrow next time. Last time the Camaro ran was either late 2014 or spring 2015. I'm hoping to spend some time with it this weekend. Knowing how things can deteriorate over time while simply sitting in the dark trailer, I figure I'll have my hands full looking over anything that can be affected by neglect. Thinking about going to CPD Saturday for the Classic Gear Jammers race. Also having a Nostalgia race reunion this weekend and a match race between a couple blown altereds. Should be a pretty good show.

Y'all have a great week and keep lighting the win lights.

Hi Y'all!
The ay hauler is all done and the trailer has new tires and new brakes on both axles. They even put a break a way switch on it.
We are all ready for SEMA.
If you get there just look for a bunch of Aussies around a turquois C10.

I'm sure they do. You can't buy at SEMA though. You will have to contact a turbosmart distributor.

Hey Floyd I was just kidding as my car is set up at 10.20 in Tucson and 10.00 in Vegas. and I don’t have any wants to go faster. All the other 9.99 Certs it’s just not what I want to do. I’m a low budget guy With Motors that will go before freshing at 700 hits . I hope you have a great time at Seema. New wheels look great but the truck always did look good.

hey everybody have a great weekend, try to do something fun! Nick

Nick,
Those are the old wheels, just cleaned up. The new ones wouldn't fit, the studs are the wrong size. It's all dependent on what's available.

Good to see you going Floyd, have fun. Mama took a big step yesterday and drove her car for the first time. Has not been a month since the surgery so she is doing really good. I guess Galot was over run with cars last weekend. Perfect conditions and no other NC track making an effort to run made that possible. Lots of cars and racers here want to run but no one seems to notice. I hope Jim Howard changes all of that at Rockingham next year and gives racers somewhere to call home. So today the temp drops 30 degrees!!!! Everyone stay safe and stand up for your country.
