Default Hello Everyone !!!!

I just wanted to chime in and say hello. I have been pretty busy over the last couple of months with trying to go to school and work a full time job, and of course, the honey do list. Anyway, I am taking a semister off to try to get out to the track a few more times this year. I got the car finished the last part of last year and only taken it out once for the Super Chevy Show. It's nice to come back and still all the same names are here. I hope everyone did good over the racing season.

Bring the wife and kids up and we will go get something to eat...mY LITTLE GIRL HAS GROWN since your wife went into my house and saw her laying on the couch when she was 2 months old...you would not recoginze her...

Thanks Wesley, I am going to try Oct 7th and grudge race my brother!!! I will let yall know how I do.

Brian, I read that you had moved. I hated moving while I was in the Navy. I think I might stay were I am at for a while. How far are you from were you used to live? I know that yall will be happy with some land now. My little girl is still little, she was sooooo happy she reached the 52lb mark, and she is 11. My older one who is 15 now will be helping me with her 91 Camaro. I figure if she builds it, she will respect it more. I will difently have to come up there and see yall. BOY your girl has grown.... it's funny how fast they grow up but when were kids, it took forever. I still have your number and will have to get up with you and your family and talk cars, engines, and of course get something to eat. Take it easy and good luck with your shop, I know your last shop was NICE....can't wait to see your new one.

Racefab, I hope you have better luck next time your out. I know my brother has had two engines built and they have only lasted 3 races. Talk about bad luck......,or should I say, a BAD engine builder. I built his last one and "knock on wood" its held up for him.

David i thought you had already completed the move, well when you get settled in NC, just watch out for Jetro, and be prepared for some badass cars down there. Them good old boys donot speak good english like the yanks, but they sure know how to get them hotrods running.
I'm sure you will love it there.
