Lol, promotions at work will do that for you. Just got paid the other day and I didn't know. And I get paid again next week. So I'm slammed with extra money. Haha

Morning...

Edlebrock... Are you entering the show or just goin down there to check it out. Not so sure I'd enter. If we're just gonna check it out, I'm game. Looking around the site and I found another show that sounds very interesting in the OC......

Cruisin For A Cure


They have a best in class Mustang and Ford and that's it. No points none of that stuff. Looks to be a cool show ??

Jon, hope everything goes OK today.

Where you find that pic? Looks like Leo riding shotgun!

TRD_Taco has seen better days, but doesn't look too shabby for a 8 year old truck.

In the last scene when Robert DeNiro jumps the fence at the airport and runs in front of a hanger, I was working on a md-11 in the hanger, we turned on the anti-collision beacon and you can see that in the movie.

Not sure why car shows are always on Sundays but I hate it too. Makes more sense to do them on Saturdays.

My favorite are Glocks though. Other are equally as nice, but the Glock just fits my hand really well.


On a side note, I'm filling out my online questionaire for my print magazine debut. Not to worry, I gave TMS and you fellas a plug.

Well it seems things are going better for the isntall... Turns out it was the last spark plug he was removing which gave loose from the porcelin part. This morning he said if he could get the tool needed to remove it he would charge me $175 to take care of it. Which he said works ((% of the time but if he had to remove the heads and etc... it would be over $600!

I went and talked in person. He'd be trying all morning to find someone to lend him the tool. Luckly I have connections at a local ford dealer. I got him the part free which he'll reduce the removal cost some. Soo... Again, I'm hoping to take delievery tomorrow. Everything else is done according to him. Just needs a tune and we're set.

Saw the s/c finally. I was in awe. Picture soon! And he also took the time to show me some dyno graphs of my car. At around 4,500 RPM the car got real rich and power plumetted down. So it'll be nice to see some good dyno graphs. I think I was at 275 rwhp with only LTs and a mid pipe. Not bad seeing as I'm riding on 20's also.
