    That's awesome Joel. I'll be there every day too. I'll have my blue car there along with my black/white Stallion. I'll look for you over there. Look forward to seeing your car!

    I bet Jamie would like to talk to you! He's been wanting to know what happened to that car for a while now!

    Wish I could make it, but a major breakdown on the truck killed it for me this year, not to mention the lousy economy hasn't helped, either. Maybe next year!

    Nothing like a little thrashing to keep the blood flowing, huh? :)
    You better be there. Good luck with it buddy. Wish I was there to help you.

    Is your car club going to set up in the same place this year? That is a great place to watch the cars.

    That big concrete slab has been removed. Our club has cleaned the lot and will be setting our big tent up again. I'm pretty sure it's the same exact spot again. We have lots of room.

    Getting Closer. We leave Wednesday morning bound for Biloxi with layovers in Jackson and McKensie, AL. Have to stop off and see the in-laws. We'll be in Biloxi Thursday evening.

    I had to rip the rear-end out last night to have the 9" rebuilt today. I've been chasing a drive-train noise for the last week and finally narrowed it down. The teeth on the ring gear were uneven and the pinion was set way too tight. I'll just say there was a lot of glitter in the oil when I pulled it. I should get it back tonight and hopefully I can install it in just a couple hours.

    Getting new tires tomorrow. 285/40-17's :party5:

    Swung by yesterday around 2:30 around and must have just missed yall. Looked like everyone was starting to head out. Any evening plans this week?

    Chris - That Alabama layover is just a tad in the wrong direction. :yup:
