Hey man, thanks for stopping by and saying 'hi', always good to put a face to the screen names :)

Any way you could send me a full res version for my "personal use" at home? :)

Also, I think a few of my sponsors might want to use a pic or two if you are willing to let them.

Geeze, time flies! I'm actually starting to track down my old '65 Mustang. Maybe I can make a nice progress album like you too!

Well, the wife HAD to buy our boy a Camaro powerwheels for his birthday and she HAD to have me paint it blue just like Blue Hour, so me and a friend Jake spent the better part of a night tearing it down and repainting it from red to blue. It's pretty close to the color, not exact but close enough for a 2 year old.

Today, July 30th is officially his birthday so we gave it to him last night because I had to work today and wouldn't be around for him to see it and use it.

He's only 2 and already figured out the most important part... the gas pedal! LOL He can't steer for nothing (gets it from his old man) but he works that gas pedal like a mad man! HAHA!

Anywhoozle, I present you with "Project: Blue Minute"!

Welp, new updates!

The rear-end is back together and seems to be working a heck of a lot better. I even got a class win the very next event! Gotta love that! It was a bit hectic to say the least, first run I lost a lot of PS fluid after a line came loose, then I had a tie-rod bolt come undone. I ran back to the parts store, came back, reinstalled the nut and blasted off a winning time, all while being helped by fellow racers and even Nate, my competition at the event.

I really do have to tip my cap to everyone who helped me out, it was great to see people come to my aid even if were technically competing. Big thanks and mega-appreciation.

After our class win at the latest AutoX a package was waiting for me on my doorstep with a set of Triple Adjustable Shocks and coils from Ride Tech... missed my window to give them some flogging by virtually 24 hours! Such a bummer.

None the less, Max decided he needed to help daddy assemble them, to which I happily obliged (hey, less work for me, right?!). Slave labor never looked so adorable! HA!

So, I have a few fixes that the Camaro needs, it's running a bit rich right now so I have to look into the computer for that. I have to look at the PS hoses again to make sure those are still tight, I want to paint the trunk, calibrate the speedo again...etc..etc... always a list, just the items change that's all.

Also, it turns out that my first book is slated to be published! The real brains behind the book is Myron Cottrell of TPiS. I just photographed some of it and made sure it was compiled well. If you get a chance, pick one up when it comes out! Look for my second book coming out shortly on a similar but different topic :)

So, here's some pics.

Well, smallish, but major update to the car.

After running the single adjustable QA1 coil overs, I was pretty much told by everyone (Jimi Day, Scott Parkhurst, Randy Johnson... et al.) that I really needed to step up my shock/spring package to dial in more speed.

That's where these Ride Tech TA's come in. Everyone I talked with wouldn't shut up about them so I figured it was worth a shot.

I haven't any track time lately to fully test them out, but here they are in all their glory!

Sorry about the crappy cell pics, it was dark in my garage that day. Bleh.

New news folks. I just submitted my photos for Camaro Performers Magazine and you'll just have to wait to see the photos I can't post any of the 'good ones' until the mag comes out. So hang in there! :)

I wish I knew cars like I knew computers...

Same here but computers are so much easier to work on. Too bad we can't pull up in our i7 32GB RAM powerhouses. :)

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.

Much much much better!!!


Well, I suppose it's been a while since I made an update, but here goes.

Why removable steering wheel???

BECAUSE RACECAR!

No, seriously the big reason was to help me get in and out of the car. Damn these long dancers legs!! LOL

Thanks to Randy at D&Z Customs for helping me find the right hub/adapter and letting me talk his ear off at all hours of the night!

NRG claimed that it wouldn't fit a '68 column but apparently they have no clue what the hell they are talking about because it fit just fine.

The car is put away for the winter. Hell, I even got stuck in a snow storm 30 miles from home, but we made it just fine!

Ok, on to the pics.

It's finally spring!

Time for some mods! Now, I picked up a rear spoiler from Jakes rod Shop which should help my downforce a bit in the corners, so we'll see how well it works in June when i go back to Road America for the OPTIMA Challenge.

Mmm.. Dat ass.

Secondly, I took a ride up to Bighley's autobody and removed the heater box, blower and heater core. Should save me 15-ish pounds off the front of the car :)

So far that's it! just waiting to get on the track to get the Ride Tech's all set up for road course season!

So some minor updates to this.

It's finally spring and I hosted an AutoX recently and got spanked by a Neon... how sad.

Regardless, I can finally get it onto a big track and let it loose. A have to admit fully that I did a major facepalm today after I looked at my dyno graph again and noticed that the redline isn't where I thought it was at 6K... nope, closer to 7K. I'm losing 50 horsepower alone! Stupid me! Should go faster now that I know I can rev it up more *insert maniacal laugh*

So, spring time brings in fluid changes and a nut and bolt session. $165 later, the car has new fluids. *insert money raining from the sky*

Seeing this my son had a little melt down that Daddy's car was "broken" and insisted on helping me put the tires back on. It was adorable. Kid was impressive to say the least, he's 2 and 1/2 and got all lugs started, takes after his dad haha!

Some car swag for me and the new little lady during our trip to OPTIMA

Completely unrelated but I had a ZL1 upgraded to a custom "ZLR" that makes roughly 850 to the wheels in my garage... Looks good next to the 68, dontcha think?
