In the past few years since you finished my car I have had nothing but engine troubles. Fast forward I got tired of nursing that stupid motor and decided to yank it out and redo everything..
    I got my motor back from H&H Mike did some machine work and assembled the balanced lower end. I did the cam and valves and just got it wrapped up and in the car. Sounds amazing! I teamed up with Offenhauser this year and running the thicker new Offy heads. They will be available soon to the public from what I understand. I have a little test and tube to do but I’m just about ready to go to the salt. I am sure hoping I can do some decent speeds this year! Wish me luck…
    If you haven’t already you can watch my journey “Stormin Bonneville” over at MadfabricatorsTV on YouTube. We are continually documenting what happens with my car. If you have thank you for the support
     
  2. Best of luck, I'm looking forward to seeing you run!

    Looks wonderful. I'm can't imagine running something that nice in the salt. But lots of folks do, so have fun and good luck.

    Hah thank you! Well I’m working on personal speed numbers right now. I don’t know how close I can get to the record but that’s what makes it fun and hard at the same time
