I finally noticed this one. Tell me about it. I have 2 in my shop. The heads are off my mustang to be rebuilt and the turbo buggy is tore down to install the turbo kit.

Son and I are about to embark on the 84 Toyota pick up hot rod now too.

I keep having real life intervene into my projects and take away from my hot rod budget.

Yes it is, especially when you are working on them.

Sure is tough. My Maverick's been sitting idle for almost a year now

In January, there was some "issues" at work-I'm still employed but I don't know for how long. Been looking for other work. I'm working 3 jobs, 2 of which aren't really full-time steady, but they pay excellent. If the full-time shuts down, I've been putting money back for the "just-in-case" deal (which I normally spend on racin'). Plus I don't have a place to work on it; other than in the trailer-and those of you who have an enclosed with a door car know that you can do some work in the trailer but there's not enough room to do everything. That and half the tools I had are gone.

GET OUT & VOTE THIS NOVEMBER!!
