Default Just About There

Hey Guys
Its been a while since I posted on here but I have been busy trying to get the car ready for Pinks All Out in Commerce on May 10th. I am going to Brians (bjuice) part of the woods to get my headers made. I wanted to Thank everyone for the advice and inputs on getting this car ready. It will be the first time I have driven a tube chassis car and this short of wheel base so it should be pretty fun. Again Thanks for all the help.

Hey Brian,
I am supposed to meet Craig I guess at his shop (exit 35). I did tell him that you told me about him and he laughed and said "I know ol Brian", then I started telling him about the Vega and Kenny and he knows the car and Kenny very well. I tell you, its a small world. Hope to see ya Tuesday.
Take Care
Chris

Just an update. I took the Vega up to SC Tuesday to have the headers welded up. Met up with Brian (bjuice) and finally got to see the Vette in person. (Pictures Do Not Do It Justice). Once I had the headers done, I called Brian up and he met me in town and took me and my daughter to his house. His wife grilled out some chicken while Brian and I got the ol Vega running. It has been a long what but it was worth it. Now all I have is some finishing touches and I will be ready. Appreciate the South Carolina hospitality.
