Matt, so sorry to hear about your uncle. Please let me and the rest of your SC Camaro buds know if we can help in anyway.

When you get back remind me to show you some pics of my first real hot rod - a 1970 Mustang Mach 1. I still can remember how that thing sounded and felt. In those days I was running what we called a Crane 3/4 race cam. We'd probably call that a stage 3 cam today. Now that thing would lope! Cool ideas you have for your uncle's Mustang. I'd love to see it as well.

Now on to this crazy idea about a trailer - do not make your Camaro a trailer queen!

Thanks Dan. One of my uncle's friends actually has a '70 Mach 1 fast back. Really nice car. Reason why I would consider the truck and trailer would be for moving reasons. You can't tow a Camaro with a Cruze
It would be for things like PCS moves, shelter so nobody screws with it in the parking lot (also a benefit for bad weather) and to transport it to shows, trips, etc. Other then that, the Cruze is my best bet.

A little more off topic.

I have been getting to do some shadowing and training with the K9 unit here overseas for the past month and I can say it is one of the most amazing jobs I have ever had the privilege of being part of. I plan on reclassing in the military to a handler so I can work with these dogs everyday. The amount of lives these guys have saved is huge and I want to be a part of it more then anything. This is me and Oscar, an Explosives and Narcotics Detection Dog and by far the coolest canine I have ever met. There is a good chance that I'll be leaving here next week, so him and me spent the day hanging out and allowing him some personal time which he rarely gets. Will definitely miss this pooch.

Can anyone guess what these are parts for?

The rest of the kit should be delivered in a couple of days.

Not a turbo either. I guessed a bunch of times too. Finally made him tell me.

Those best not be some type of oil lines for a tranny cooler needed for a tranny switch to a TH400 or something!

I figured it out! The round think threw me for a loop, but it's a pilot bushing. New clutch going in.

This a want or a need? Stock clutch slipping or do you think a twin disk will help you get a better launch?

Need and a want. Something that can take a beating at the track. Last on the list are axles, built diff, driveshaft, and sub frame bushings.
