I live vicariously through ya'll. Someone has to build these beasts. And someone has to watch. I'm quite content watching!

I hope you do get to go! It really is a lot of fun. Pretty much a weekend long tailgate party.

Time and money is exactly what it takes... Unfortunately there are no short-cuts....

It's also helpful if you have a complete lack of common sense.

My wife asked me at dinner tonight if I knew how much I had spent on Brandi so far... uhm.... not sure..... exactly... (not sure where she was going with this)... so I played it close to the chest....

She then asked me if I had looked into a special insurance policy yet, as it would be a sad day if the car was stolen.... phewwwwww... ok, I can deal with that...

I have an additional in land marine policy on my camaro. State farm wouldn't insure all the extra's. They cover the car stock, and the inland marine policy is basicly a cover all for the rest. IT was a PITA ... tons of reciepts and pictures out the butt!!! But if for some reason the car was a total loss it would be a replacement car and then a check to get started all over again!

We'll welcome you back with open arms...

On a side note... My clutch should have shipped this morning... Hoping to see it by Monday...

I do have access to a trailer for towing to pretty much any venue I need to or want to go to... Monty and I are going to do some work on it, replace a fender that has some minor damage to it... And build an air dam for the front of it to keep rocks and whatnot away from the front of Brandi... I'll also be painting the trailer... It's in good shape but Monty doesn't want my car up on it unless it's looking the best it can...

Thanks Monty...
