Happy New Year !!

I sure hope this ones better than the one just past - bought a used diesel
truck that cost me $10,000 in repairs, sold the mustang, bought a kawasaki
650 enduro that cost me a $1000 in repairs, and just had my 2005 Yamaha
Grizzly stolen right before christmas.

pissed off but getting over it

PS: I'm working on obtaining another on topic automobile next week, once
it's acquired, it will certainly liven up the group.

Happy New Year, Al!

It's been a grand year for me! I beat melanoma and got the Mach 1! I
visited the local engine builder yesterday to begin discussions of "Phase
III". Bwahahahaha!

If all I do in 2006 is enjoy life and all my toys, it'll be great!

Hell's Bells! Look what slithered in for the New Year. How are ya?

No solid plans at the moment. I'm just fleshing out some of my options.
This local engine shop just opened up about 6 months back.
http://backwoodsracing.com

I was in China when they had their open house/BBQ/smokeout/woofer
toss/loudest stereo/chassis dyno day, so I stopped by since I was off work.
I got the $0.05 tour, but their Ford man was not in. I'll go back when he's
in. They have some nice equipment, a lot of it new - a CWT crank balancer,
CNC V30 engine machining center, Stuska engine dyno, Mustang chassis dyno,
sandblaster, bake oven, shot blaster, and spray washer.

My range of options are leave the motor as is to drop in an aluminum
sideoiler. The most probable option is build-up the existing motor. Bore
it, stroke it, deck it, hydraulic roller cam, CJ heads, hardened valves and
seats, headers, new manifold, new carb, new ignition, beef up some
traditional weak points on the chassis. It all depends on what I find I
have in the car this winter. I know it's not numbers matching.

I also need to rebuild the toploader - 2nd gear synchronizer is worn. I
have e-mailed David Kee for a quote. I'm going to contact a local guy next
week in Bay City. When this is done, I'll put in a new clutch, release
bearing, etc. I'll be sure these components match with the eventual motor
build-up I do.

I want it to be in between stock and wild, say 400-500 hp. I'm leaning
towards the 500 end! I want the idiot ricers at the stop lights to KNOW
they will be smitten from the face of the earth if they so much as think
about revving their toy engine at me!

Hissss!, it feels good to flex that big block muscle!

I'll chime in as I explore my options when I have more details. I
definately want input from the Snakes.
