2010 Camaro SS modified extensively. I stretched the body to make it a 4 door, but I swapped in the 3.6L DI V6 for fuel economy. Then I picked up a corvette body around the V8. I also swapped the body for a C2 Z28. (In short I traded it for three cars, a Corvette Z06r, a C2 Camaro Z28, and a Cadillac CTS Summer Performance package 3.6L DI with Aisin 6spd.)

Anyone ever done a road-rally-race before? I've kind of heard of them, but never tried them. I was wondering if they are fun at all: http://www.wnku.org/post/join-wnku-steely-library-our-2nd-annual-road-rally-and-car-show


Secondly, reminder that gokart racing will be going down SUNDAY (this sunday, march 4th) at 1:00 PM at Full Throttle next to Dave and Busters! http://www.cincykarting.com/

It's the 1:18 metal replica from chevymall.com, made by JADA. I think I paid $15, they had some special on the IOM a couple weeks ago. They only have RJT and RY (w/ stripes) now and they're $32.

Do it!

The time off is so worth dealing with 9 months of pregnancy and the delivery!!!

ha, i was wondering how you got that thing so detailed-guess they come pretty close-to-spec out of the box. I wish I had more time to build models! Last one I made was a ws6 about 7 years ago:

Just that it will be in the cage shop until April.

The engine is ready to be assembled. I think all the other parts are in at IPS (I know the heads are done, I'm just not sure if they've arrived at IPS yet.)

It's just a matter of waiting for the cage. After that, it should go together quickly. Then the real fun begins. I can't wait to hear it start up for the first time.

You know Em, if you need somewhere to put the engine until Smaug is ready - I'm sure Kaylee wouldn't mind keeping it warm. Heck I bet she'd even break it in for you

Thanks for the kind offer, but that would be just too much to ask.
