Jeff, she is a sweet ride only 351 2v but a nice cruiser, we have had some drama, looks like some cowboy has tried to lift the car up with a fork lift or something and badly bent the tailshaft  :o ??? So today before we headed to Charlotte for the race we had to replace it, SO now just about to sleep for the Charlotte 600 is on tomorrow can't wait my first ever NASCAR race  ;D

It's been a while since I've been to a race at Lowes, but the thing I remember most is that it was so loud that I couldn't hear the guy sitting right next to me!

Guess I'll stop complaining about living a couple of miles from the GM proving grounds in MI !!

Hot Rod Power Tour "LONG HAULERS" came by today from 12:15 to 2 PM !!  Almost two hours of constant cars.   I gathered about 16 of my neighbors to watch.   Got to talk to a number (backed up at stop sign).
All said they loved Michigan - spoke highly of the efforts in Muskegon and at GM.

Many are returning for Woodward in Aug.   Not sure if Peter and his mates are on their way south. That Torino could have stayed here !

Hey! Mark great effort in trying to get hold of me. we thought all those people waving at us from the over passes were saying hello to the power tour when in fact they were your neighbours trying to tell me to turn off lol !!!
