Always taking suggestions, and that infinity symbol is pretty forward thinking... wow.

I guess that means we can meet at Palm Beach International one day and go play in S. FL.

Yep! I've been pretty happy with the Camaro, unfortunately it's biggest practical downfall has been that while it has immensely more potential than the C5 vert did to haul my daughter around, we realized a little too late that a forward facing baby seat wouldn't work (at least not with anyone sitting in front)

Well thanks for the forward thinking complement, but I think I'd rather have a little more of your fast forward thinking lol The infinity thing was more of an afterthought, but I thought it was kind of neat to have kind of the infinite power idea under the hood, and you're getting there I just really liked the idea of having all of those connected pieces be the polished areas, & hopefully the polished heads would bring more attention to that beautiful intake runner setup if it could be seen under there, that's a beautiful piece.

The front page just had a shot of your engine compartment on there and I still just had to shake my head in near disbelief of how well that looks like it will work out for you, great job!

Long time no see dude!




I got a chance to speak with Bruce today... you can hear it in his voice... He's kinda gett'n excited... You gotta pull it out of him though....

True gentleman that he is, he kept asking me about my car, my family, my work....

You are a good man Bruce,

Thanks for letting all of us be a part of this.

When this is up to speed, are only the bottom of the props in the water? They look high up.
This particular boat is a pretty heavy v-hull, but they are surface drives. At top speed, the rooster tail can be monstrous. Check out the meat cleavers in the pic below...

You are a wild man Mike. It is getting closer. A few gotchas left, but not too many... It would be fun to get together at Turkey Rod Run.

I felt bad 'cause the picture shown is the mock up parts - block, turbos, etc. The final ones should look quite a bit better.

I think you should really put one of these on the back of the car where the chute deploys. It will add some class and show your enthusiasm for boats. Maybe the SST can run on water too!

Heyas! Ya, sorry I've been MIA for quite a while, but with our new daughter & the insanity at work (while I still have a job that is :( ) I figured it'd be better if I stayed away from all the temptations on here lol

We just finished moving again (still in FL), I've got a few more months with my current job before ___________ (fill in the blank, your guess is as good as mine ), so I'm still trying to keep a low profile. Hopefully once that gets figured out & my head stops spinning I'll be around a little more often

I started trolling around some more since I won some cool stuff at Torq's annual event from their charity raffle I'll also have some very cool news for everyone from a manufacturer I've been communicating with for over a year now, can't say anything more than that for now, no really, they made me sign a NDA lol

You are a good man Bruce,

Thanks for letting all of us be a part of this.

Thanks for the very kind words Chris.(I'll send you the $20 later...lol) Hope to see ya next week. Heck, I need to go for a ride in your retuned THR 22 !!!
