Yessir, just keeping my head down and getting stuff done. Work is busy, home life is busy w/ softball and fixing everyone's broken sh!t. Car fund is growing, big plans coming up, just have to commit to a decision and drop a chunk of change. Not sure how people are going to react to a pre-runner chevelle though. (/joke (including my life))

Still putting miles on it, yesterday was forecast for no rain, drove it in to work. Had a co-worker hit me up for lunch, don't think she's ever ridden in a car with any power. Blew her mind, she kept on telling me to race everyone so she could hear it.

Got in touch with newspaper about parade pictures, they're forwarding my request to the photographer, stay tuned.

Did forget to mention, stopped by a long time buddy's house trying to talk him into wrenching on his dad's 66 nova ss. He told me to lay it out when I left, so pulled out, started out in first, then double clutched second and hung on for as long as I could. Hitting the yellow line threw the ass end out, going that fast, and hanging that far out coming into a curve was sketchy as hell so I slowly lifted till it straightened out. Was about 3/4 of the way through 2nd, so around 50 mph or so. The 205s are stickier and along w/ the updated rear suspension components I can get really good bite when rolling through the gears, but will still boil the damn things off if I'm not dialed in.

So, safe to say your not winning any dig races?? lol #rolllyfe


I got a dude I play volleyball with on Tues night that has a 5.7 GTO cam/headers car T56. I wanted to see what I could do against. We did a dig right in front of the bar... lol Needless to say I've never spun more in my life, so bad that car actually shifted into second spinning. No recovering from that. I suppose these date code 03 hard tires that have had significant burnouts lately aren't my choice for digs either.

It will honestly get off the line and hold the gears now, your lower control arms and the 300 treadwear made this thing a lot more fun at lights, but a lot less scarier to passengers. Should be drying up this weekend, I'll see if I can get a video out in the cornfields to show the difference.

Was out and about for father's day yesterday. Daughter and I have been trying to find hidden murals in downtown for a WHILE. Yesterday somehow we luckily stumbled upon it, we had both studied the type of brick/mortar/structure the murals were on and caught a glimpse of the roof top of the building, was fun. It was a tribute to Billie Eillish, have no idea who that is or what it's about but, wemmens were happy, which equals easy living.



After that we came home and saw our neighbor was getting her food truck painted. Pulled up, the "artists" fell in love with salty, had to take them for a ride, brought them back, then neighbor's daughter wanted to go as well. Came back and was able to get a shot as the sun was setting, pretty cool work so far.



Thank you again to lit photo app for pixelating the hell out of the pics.

Last time I got to drive this was the 4th. Had a screwed up Craigslist deal, went to look at a set of weld pro stars but was the wrong offset for the rear. I did get the tires rotated in a hotel parking lot though.



Came out to work on the wife's car and keep on running into spider webs around my tool box. Went and looked, yup, they're trying to tell me something..

If it's been hot and steamy there like it has here, I wouldn't want to be without the A/C either.

That's the nice thing about the Chevelle...you can take the garage with you in the trunk.

Dude, I hardly used to worry about going outside but now you get a river flowing just standing!

Lol so much room for activities! Seriously though you can fit a family in that trunk, it's cavernous.

My shelf of knowledge decided it had enough and let go. Dumped everything down the side of the car. Cleaned everything up but haven't brought myself to look to see if anything happened.



Shoveled all the manuals, folders, and books from out under it and figured I'd get a vid knocking the cob webs off.

I'm back to not getting email notifications, so my response may be delayed.
