Well I'll start with Calling Austin Home... it seems at the show the word is out..cause pretty much everyone I know.. already knew.. but I'm planning on moving to Austin in August...I gotta an offer I couldn't refuse and It will be Mad Fabricators new home base. I'll just say for now that my life is going to change in major ways and moving to Austin is going to be the best decision i'll ever make! I love Cali,,, But I just can't afford it...I want to retire at 45 and move to Hawaii so I gotta start saving hahahahahahaha... I'll post more on this subject in the future.... So last year I was trying to get LIVE WIRE ready for the Round Up... but tragedy struck when one of my cylinders stuck.. missed the show... this year I made up for by coming up 2 weeks early.. Actually I came out to work at A>S>S> during the craziest time of the year for the shop..being at the shop and working with everyone was such a blast,,,they are all family to me...we all busted ass to get the shop all ready for the party,, met deadlines on several cars,,, stayed out late and drove the shit out of our Hot Rods!!! So I left on the 4th with Dave Martinez we loaded up Live Wire and headed out. 20 hours later we arrived... I got dropped off and Dave went to Do some Upholstery... One of my goals with the car is to ride along with Bob and Bob Sr. and there cars...soon after I unloaded LW.. Bob sr. rolled up and Live Wire finally met his cousin...this was the moment I waited for...Mark Fords Rat Rod is bad ass... ;D heheeee So before I left I got LW working ok but the intake that I had on it was not working so good (Edlebrock "Cold Sieries" took forever to warm up )when I got there I talked to Bob about getting her to run better turns out John Joyo had the same intake the one with the heat riser but he traded it a while ago for some other stuff..so he called Greg Brandt who had it and we traded the one on Live Wire for the "Right" one... thanks Greg!! Dreddybear AKA Paul was a total RULER!!! I ran into him at the roller derby and I told him if he knew where I caould find an intake gasket..he makes a few calls and gets Marc Davis AKA Headhunter on the phone and had an intake gasket at the shop at 9:00 am the next morning then Paul shows up and jumps on it and got it all together and ready for the Dog and Duck...that fucker fired right up and she ran like a champ...110% better!!!! thanks guys!!! so Paul hops in Live Wire and we all head out...the drive there was awesome.. it was the first cruise in LW with my family,,, and she was running like a champ!!
