    James you weren’t kidding when you said you cut the quarters off of it that thing isn’t really too rusty underneath typically when I do that at work there is nothing left of the outer wheelhouse or trunk drop of rockers for that matter that’s gonna be an easy fix

    James , I know trying to out run the Marauder is intimating but doing a Hot Rod style Caddy hack on the saltshaker isn't needed lol . Unless I can swap the 390 for the 428 on the engine stand , replace the Merc o matic with a c6 I have and slip in the 4:10 carrier I have, I might not need my glasses to see your tailights at the big end! ;) lol But it will be great to see the " BAND" back together even if I am just a back up singer :):) Larry

    Hope that the extra weight of the loser Tickety bite bumper stickers you get, don't slow you all down to much :D

    Randal, might be room left on your new Lexan rear window if you didn't get to it yet :p

    for those wondering why we aren’t holding the event in 2021, it is simple...we couldn’t pull this event off in that little time.

    Anyone who has put on a large event gets it...the amount of work (while doing it as a night job) is tremendous.

    hope that helps

    I can’t wait to see it run Randy!

    I do have to say that I can’t wait to see many of you at the final one.

    Salty- how is that 409 of yours?

    The 409 is just fine, one project to finish up then going to work on a production of the rust repair and the roll bar install with the welder I won at your last Meltdown. :)
