Here is the video I took of my buddy driving my car.
Jerry beating on my car - YouTube

And here is my buddies car getting nasty. It's probably one of the simplest combos I've ever seen. Stock 302 short block, gt40p heads, TFS1 cam, single plane with CSU carb on E85, AOD, and stock suspension with 1 coil cut in front and Strange shocks all around.

Well Saturday was L O N G day going to bowling green started at 4:30 am and got home around midnight. Good Time with John H. and Justin, thanks to justin for driving. Never got to go on a long trip sitting in a truck that felt like I was sitting on a couch. Still can't believe a F250 diesel can get that good of mileage, makes me start thinking of new daily. Got down there and Frank hooked me up with a tarp to sell some stuff and sold a couple wheels in the first 5 minutes, so the cash started out good. Checking out all the race cars and seeing some awesome engineering involved in the cars was amazing. Watched the Termy vs GT500 and larry's quick out of the hole , but something went wrong at the big end. Seeing that termy in DSG go to the back bumper and then slam down hard was unbelievable. Talking to Chris, Carlo's, Chris wahl, and others at Larry's pits. Chris Wahl your still crazy with that new project. Also enjoyed looking at the cars and yes the women with the big ....well extremely tight shirts.

BG did not go as I had planned. Never made a clean pass. Here is the quick rundown.

Tnt Friday morning - Blew the tires off 2.04 60' and [email protected]
Rd 1 Qual Friday night - hooked so hard the crotch strap caught the seat adjuster and slide the side all the way back. Had to drive down the track slouched a little just to get the pedals clean. Shut it down going into forth because it was crazy lean...battery light on.... 1.406 60' 10.42 @115 - new rebuild alternator TOAST!!!!
Found a few spares from other racers and stuck one on. Started the car and it was charging and there was no unusual noises or rattles coming from the motor.
Rd 2 Qual Sat noonish - gave it too much on the line and spun a little 1.52 60" Car started breaking up in second - lean - lifted and tried again and same result. Abandoned the pass and the weekend at that point.

The alternator that I run is 220 A and the one on the car was likely 110-130 A. Just dont think there was enough there to support the setup and tune. Still hoping the motor is safe. Pulled the plugs and all looked good. Going to get the alternator issue straightened out and go from there. Very disappointing because the air was INCREDIBLE and the track was hooking HARD! I really think the weekend would have produced a 9.6x @ 140 if I did not have electrical issues.

Tim Holt was on a mission. Put his Kurgan tuned, E85, stock unported blower, stock irs, stock 6 speed in the tens with a 10.89 @ 127. The car was sixtying in the mid 1.5s.

Also pleased to see Jeremy Stewart take his vert to a new PB of 10.53 and backed it up in the first pass of TS with a 10.59. He was beaten out of the 11 sec class win with a 11.019 average to his 11.029 average of 3 passes.

Good evening all.

Standing in the cold freezing rain Friday night at my son's football game was one of the more miserable experiences of my adult life. I had not dressed for the occasion at all - jeans, casual shoes and a light jacket.

Saturday our youth travel football team advanced in the playoffs to the semi-championship down in Brown County on Saturday. Should be a good game.

After football season ends I'm going to need to replace the heater core in Caleb's '70 mustang. Since it was orginally an A/C car I've heard replacing the core is a 10 hour job, but I hope they are wrong. I just can't imagine how it would be THAT bad. Knowing my luck with working on cars though it will be much worse.

I showed up way late on Saturday but made it. Seemed like most of my friends had bad luck this year except JD.

Good afternoon all.

Had concrete poured into the 2' by 30' trench I dug down the middle of the levee. There was so much material that was out of the middle of the levee from the breach that it took 4 concrete trucks of material to fill it up. I hope this will finally take care of the problem, another $4k later.

That's a decent amount of concrete there Z. The DIY Network should start a show about you and your levee. LOL!

Good morning all.

Yes Stev-O this levee thing is wearing me out. If this doesn't fix it I basically have to have someone come in and cut that whole section out and rebuild it but that would be tens of thousands of dollars, which come to think of it, is what I've already spent.

Afternoon everyone!

Just spent the morning in the warehouse helping with inventory count. Kind of nice to do something stressfree!

I was hoping to go to the NMCA event this weekend, but I can't seem to shake this drainage and cough

For the fox body owners here - A vendor at bowling green was Foxresto.com which has NOS and reproduction fox body parts. They are starting to make interior parts.

Hey frank got any good condition black or 89 GT grey consoles. Another thing I should of kept, I picked up a couple delete panels from Scott Rod. One of them is installed after cutting off the console after of the shifter.
