    I have had my eye on that Tod.
    You know I would just like to have a car that a girl would want to be around.
    My wife is around it but she loves me.....I am a lucky man.

    Nothing like new pictures from last season showing up to get all revved up for Meltdown. The Hilltown Shaker last season at Beaver Springs Nostalgia Nationals and Jalopy showdown race. The car is really working well getting up on the tire. Cant wait for spring. Big thanks to Todd Dziadosz for the great shots and Beaver Springs Dragway for all the pretty backdrops, my favorite track .

    Fancy stuff there...

    Does beating Scott count when he will be in a "rented" car by then?

    Well Dads a dumb ass. And used the wrong color plasti gauge checking the mains. So we get to do over again. Better now than have something get all outta whack later.

    More Father and Son Bonding next week ( Too be continued )

    Take it easy on the Ol Man, he probably got off the stool and took his eyes off of you a second while you grabbed the wrong color. lol

    The short block is back together Salty.

    Freshened it up with new cam, rod, main bearings and Bullet series C/P pistons.:cool:

    Ric suggested that we give it a little more compression, and we advanced the cam 8 degrees for more low end torque.
    Measured over .060 rod to cam clearance 1-2, 5-6, and plenty of valve clearance,
    Silly Putty says its all good.:rolleyes:

    Head gaskets should arrive in a few days, to button the rest up.

    Hell James you are adding about half the cubic inches my poor little ol motor has to your already big inch W motor so guess I better dust off the ol 6-71 that's been waiting patiently for about 20 years so I can squeeze in some more compression so I have a slim chance to keep up oh wait scratch that it was supposed to be a secret nothing to see here nope not a damn thing lol
