I like to think I'm going to be the old guy still waxing his old 2012 SS in 30 years. What do you think?
Thanks J, appreciate it! The mag was a nice surprise to open up the issue and see my car in it, and it's paid dividends as I've been contacted by 2 others mags to do a feature (If only they paid me LOL!!), but that'll be payment enough, plus it'll always help the resale value Shit bro, I already feel like the old guy waxing his cars Just got done doing the Tahoe and I'm ready for a chiropractic adjustment! You know the more I drive it, it just puts a smile on my face. The way it rocks at idle with the new cam, the whine of the Cog Drive pulleys, it snaps necks everywhere I go as it truly is one of a kind...But like they say, money talks, but I think I'll have it for a while.

That sucks about the syncros bro, something to worry about with high milage. I may be beefing up my diff on the Tahoe soon since I'm heading back east. I found a guy out here in Cali that does awesome 4x4 work & has had race trucks in mags before, so he knows his stuff and I'll be driving the Hoe back cross country, so I want to make sure that's bulletproof also. Speaking of mod list, I just added LED HD Silverado mirrors, Recon Cab lights & a new smoked 3rd brake light to go with the new black tail lights. So keep it up little brotha!! Here's a pic for you! Tomorrow the ZLX gets cleaned I don't know what turns more heads the Hoe or the ZLX??

Yea I figured as much Luke, the SS Brembos are kick ass, and even though they only have 2900 miles on the car, I just want to get this shit done and out of the way. With the power I'm putting down, I want everything to be bulletproof. BTW smoked a Shelby 500 last Saturday like it was a 4 banger, my buddy in the car turned white as he got sucked into his seat!

Well like they say, everything's got a price right



Got another surprise today when the mailman showed up with the latest issue of Camaro Performers Magazine (May Issue) The "Super Car" has graced the pages of 2 mags in 2 months!!!

Guess I can use this too

Time to hit Barnes & Noble and grab some more copies!!

I have to wonder though who writes some of the stuff, cause it's a bit jumbled up Funny thing, I had the exact same IROC that's pictured above mine!

Chevy runs deep baby!!

Thanks Mike, it's an awesome feeling opening it up and seeing the car in a mag(Especially one that's strictly Camaros), 2 months in a row now! They don't let you know that they're putting it in. And it's even cooler cause I was just reading the mag and I turn the page after mine and there's Tim's Demon!! How cool is that, both of us have been in 2 of the same mags!

With the excitement from today's happenings, I forgot to mention the car's going back to CMS for the clutch & axle upgrades next week when I get back from Philly. Ryne & I talked about what clutch & it was down to the Mantic 9000 & the Mcloed RXT, and since Mcloed is made in the USA, so parts readily available, the failure rate is minuscule and the holding power is simply cement, all with a stock clutch feel. And I want to thank Casey at GForce Engineering for the AWESOME deal on the axles, thanks bro!! Now I'll be as close to bulletproof as possible!

You've never steered me in the wrong direction yet bro. Bringing my car to you and having you complete the build & put the CMS stamp on it was the best thing I've done with the car.

I drove 85 miles and would drive 5oo miles to have you do your magic! Anybody in SoCal that doesn't go to Cunningham Motorsports is missing the boat, and most likely driving one Ryne puts out the fastest, safest cars on the West Coast, and him & Texas Mike are good people!

Thanks Tim, you too! It was awesome when I turned the page and saw your ride in there also! So I guess we know Camaro Performers has a good eye for perfection! I've been reading hot rod mags all my life, as I'm sure you have, and as a kid I'd always admire the Reader Rides section and say to myself one day it would be cool to have a car in there. So now after 25 years I still got that same giddy feeling seeing my car in there with so many awesome cars out there to choose from. It really is an honor

@Baylor, I did all the engine work on the Hoe shortly after I bought it in 2007, and at the time I put 20" rims and some low profile Goodyears on it for the first couple of years. I ran it at Atco racetrack in NJ and my best time was a 13.52 @ 98 mph, so about 3-4 seconds faster than stock. It probably lost a little bit cause those Iron Bull bumpers added about 350-400 lbs. That thing pulls for days!

Thank you the kind words Kurt, like I've said many times before, you always seem to know the right things to say, and at the right time. A truly special gift! I know I've made Tim proud, and I only wish here physically to enjoy the car with me. We've enjoyed so many cars, bikes and boats over our 30+ year friendship, his 60s Barricuda, Pontiac GTA, the golden brown Screamin Eagle Trans Am. My Z28, IROC, Vette, 5.0, the boats, the Kawasaki Ninjas...So many good times involving speed! I feel him with me at times and he'll be next to me all the time. A lot I credit you, my friend, thank you!

Life is short, enjoy it while we're here!
