Two days at the Beach

My Wife Debbie and I just got back from Corpus Christi...

She needed a couple days away from the house and work, so we got away...

We spent a couple hours on the beach Tuesday afternoon, and then it pretty much rained all day on Wednesday... No complaints from us, as we most assuredly need the rain in Central and South Texas....

This morning, on the way out of town, I took Brandi out to play on the sand... No tire spinning or much more than idling around, I just wanted to take a couple of pictures... Brandi doesn't need sand in her skirt...

Thanks, yes my builder has earned and I give him part ownership of this car... He is amazing... no advertising, no beating the forums, just quiet quality work.... I do the gabbing and he does the building...

Your car is sick brotha I like it a lot, Im also diggin the first pic on the first page because I work for the company that hauled your car to the dealership lol (very cool). They called a bunch of us out that way to haul cars when the Camaro was first released due to the mass amount that were sold out in Texas, the humidity almost killed me lol.

Thanks

Your company did a great job hauling it! Quick unload too. No fuss, no muss! Whatever muss means!?!? LOL. I have been to Texas and Gulf coast states! Ugh. I will take a pass on the humidity. I dont know how they live in that.

yup, too quick... Now you know why I am lobbying for a late may Fest III... Don't care where it is, if it's in late may, I'll be there, any other time, not too sure...I'll try, but no promises...

yup, me too, Corey will start with the six point install... I want to see the front down tubes before they are welded in... If they drop in front of the dash, or behind it as the dash is further forward, then I may opt to customize them and go down through the dash like they did in Speedsters car... If they follow the dash down it may be nigh on impossible to get in and out of the car, and that would pretty much prevent Debbie from riding in it... And I don't want that to happen...

If you added some cutouts, you could have yourself a sandstorm !!

Good luck with the cage. If there are any pics I may have that would help Corey out, just yell. I had sent some to Dan a long time ago that they used to help layout his cage.

Thanks B,

I'll pass that on, but its a ready to weld in cage for the most part, though I want to see the front down tubes before they are installed...
