We'll have to set something up so the kids will be at either my parents house or Dana's parents house. But we had a great time when Chris was in town out at your house and would love to do it again.

Had a few updates from Corey.

many fire hazards and a lot of poor craftsmanship found on the car.
So needless to say I am relieved that the car will be a much better quality now

as for the motor, Crank, heads and block look good.

the bearings are toast, the Cam is shit, pistons are no good, Rods are ok,
but only rated to 600hp so those are coming out.
Block is at the machine shop now.

Corey and team are doing their best, i have full faith in them.
Unfortunately it will be extremely close to Camaro5Fest before they will have a completion date.

So it looks like I will be coming down to Indy again with the golf cart...
and maaaaaybe the Gold Truck, if i feel she can make it..... unless.....

MIRACLE

Fire Hazards... We've had enough of those lately.

I sure hope that transmission is good too.

But the Golf cart will be fun!!!

This modification appears to have come from an idea that involved a few mixed beverages.

Kyle, rest assured Corey will have Detroit Muscle in good shape for you.

We were both kind of awed by some of the work. Some of it was top notch and some of it was... well.... WTF....

I was in Corey's shop and saw your car. It has the biggest engine compartment I have ever seen. Huge! All it needs is a motor ;-)
