I haven’t posted much lately because things have been really going downhill at work. The economy has finally caught up with the company and in turn with me also. So right now all of my attention is focused on finding new employment and some stability (if that exists) during these harsh economic times.
Though I’m not unemployed I still will not just sit there and watch everything unfold.
On a postive note…I was contacted by the owner of Farrah’s Foxy Vette. If some of you remember I did an article on the Corvette that received a lot of attention from several different fan sites. Well the owner found my article and contacted me. I will be following up with him soon for an updated article on the car. So stay tuned!

A few updates I wanted to mention…
I FINALLY got the tires in for ’94 Silverado and had all of the new wheels and tires put on Tuesday. It looks great and pics will be coming soon. It has been raining here and the truck could use a good wash before pics are taken. So you will have to wait.
I have been sick for about the past week and finally had enough and went to the doctor yesterday. This is the first time I have been to the doctor in over 2 years. Well I was told I had an upper respiratory infection and after 2 shots in the ass and a $160 worth of drugs I’m supposed to feel better. Did I miss something? Actually I do feel better this morning and will be heading back to work today.
I have updated the Events Calender and it looks like March will be a busy month for local car shows. So go check out what coming up here in the Miss-Lou.
I’m waiting on Summit again for a Fuel Manifold for my dual quads that I will be installing on the 1971 Camaro Z28 RS. It is on back order so I don’t know when it will show up. I had to order a new Breather for the Dual Quads because the breather I had wouldn’t fit under the cowl induction opening in the Z28’s hood and I ordered a fuel pressure gauge. So I still need to install the Dual Quads, new Holly blue label electric fuel pump and regulator as well. Hope to get this all done before all of the local shows kick off in March.

Another Daytona 500 is history. The 51st running of the Great American Race was shortened by rain when NASCAR determined the track was lost after heavy rain moved in from the west. The race was called with only 48 laps left with Matt Kenseth in the lead with Kevin Harvick, the 2007 Daytona Champ in second.
Kevin Harvick said “If the race is called for rain and Matt wins that would be ok with me because Matt pushed me to the win in 2007.”
Matt Kenseth’s win at Daytona is Roush/Fenway’s first ever Daytona 500 win.
Congrats to Matt Kenseth and the Roush/Fenway organization on the first Daytona 500 win.

I will be parked in front of my 52″ HD Big Screen TV for the 51st running of the Daytona 500. I WILL NOT be answering the phone, texts, emails, IMs or Twitter during this time. So all of you are on your own. I know some of you are panicing right now but you just have to carry on with out me for a few hours.
Ahhhhh! There is nothing like the smell of burnt rubber and exhaust in the afternoon!
I’m pulling for Kevin Harvick in the #29 Shell/Penzoil Chevy. Go Kevin! Drive that thing like you STOLE it brother!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope all you guys took care of your better halves. I know I did with Roses, Chocolate and a nice and Sappy Card.

Well I’m still waiting on two tires so I can put my new tires and wheels on. Summit came through and corrected their goof and I now have a complete set (correct sizes) of Cragar Soft 8s with knock-offs and two 245/60R/15 Cooper Cobra GT tires for the front. I’m still waiting on my 295/50R/15 tires for the rear that I bought on eBay.
I got the ’94 Silverado cut and buffed and it looks great. The paint was oxidized and a bit faded but it came back to a pretty decent shine. I also removed the old body side molding just leaving the fender chrome. There are a few paint chips and scratches here and there that need touched up but overall the truck looks better than it has in a long time.
I’m still working on the guy that has the SBC 350 Police Interceptor and transmission. He is wanting a certain amount while I’m wanting to pay a certain amount so I’m gonna sit on it for a bit and see what happens. He and I are friends but go back and forth like two kids trading marbles. I hope to get the setup and stay under budget for the build.
Unfortunately it looks as if I will not be doing the ’67 Chevy C10 Rat Rod project. Since I’m building the ’94 Silverado to be an all around Street Rod that will double for a Mule to pull the ’71 Camaro z28 RS it made more since to build the Silverado and invest the money in it than a lengthy project like the C10.
The ’67 Chevy C10 Stepside will be posted For Sale soon here on M3.
I’m hoping to get M3 caught up this weekend so stay tuned for the updates. I’ve been a bit under the weather this week so posts have been a bit sparce this week.
