    Another wed night and a few more project gettin done.
    Ran until about 10:00 last night and the "Red Rocket" T is getting closer , its a runner and needs a few little things ironed out before that first down the street test drive. Hopefully sat will wrap it up and get some road time etc. I think the three stromberg 97's will need some tweaking as the engine is runing on the center carb and may need some addition fuel etc.
    (Anyone with some experience here ?? Like what jets do they need when running on the center carb????).
    The "whale" got a new " Bubba" Mallory distributor along with some braided wires and rajay clips. Some detailing and a Edmunds intake ( along with the split headers etc) and a pair of Meteor Injectors.
    Eagletuckys GMC Hybird truck got some wires hooked up and looks like its a driver for the caravan to Beatersville next sunday. We leave the parking lot at 6:30 sharp next sunday morning with a Scottburg fuel stop and on to the show.
    Not much new with the baby 283 but the parts are laying there just need some time....
    Good time last night with lots of folks havin fun at Bubbas........

    Yes it felt good to get it on the road. just a few more items to address, and it should be good to go. The car felt pretty good, plenty of power I think, steering was alright, and the brakes were there, just need some time on those.

    I do need to thank some people for their help and involvement.
    Bubba, Scott, Rooman, Tom Culberson, Scott Meyer, Big D, International Painting Specialist, Walt, Paterson, Randy Hyatt, and the WHOLE GANG at Bubba's every Wedensday night. Without these poeple, this would not have been possible, thank you.:)
