    Joe,

    I was wondering how you are doing with your engine. I'm a chance taker too and luckily win more often than lose. I know you'll be back on the road soon since you are missing too much racing. I'll always remember when you went and helped Lahrs diagnose his issues. I hope you are already finished fixing it.

    It was on my 6th of 7 runs at Pocono AutoX it gave out on de-celleration after the finish line. I am in process of tearing down the engine, so far the lifter area did not damage the block. I have bent pushrods and hoping for minor bent valves, I can live with those repairs. I really hope I dont need to do a block swap, I will get to compression testing this weekend. Thanks for the pickup truck offer. As of now all good.

    Joe,

    Wow, That sucks! Were you driving at speed when this happened? Are you planning on replacing or repairing the engine? I have a pickup truck if you need to use it. Let me know if you need an extra set of hands during your repair. I am more than happy to help.

    I am totally up for a group event in August. I am planning on going to the Newtown car show on July 9th.


    If I don't talk to you take care.

    Joe,

    How have you been? I saw you commented on one of my posts. Got the car painted Lexus Indigo Blue over the winter. Looks really sweet.

    I saw from some of your posts you did some major work this past winter. Drop me a line if you get a chance.

    Cheers
    Kevin

    Joe, It would be awesome if you stopped by to lend a hand. My brother in law has been helping me and I am really close. All have to do is plug the harness into the gauges and I am almost done the wiring. One thing I could really use help with is the Russ Thompson turn signal. Do you have that on your car? I am shooting for Sunday Morning to start her up. Please let me know if that works.

    Joe,
    Do you know of any scales in the area that we can drive on and weigh quick? Atlas Moving has been closed the last 3 times I attempted, and I'm not even sure they will weigh.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Hey Ben I am in Hatboro which is just to the NW of Willow Grove, 611 exit PA Turnpike. There are quite a few of us around this area. Another thing there is a Cobra revolution held in Washington's Crossing in early June it draws about 100+ cars. High % are FFR's.

    Right now I am fitting and under car exhaust, already did loud cars with side pipes in the late 70's.
