@LicataTom Thinking of taking it to road course at Willow Springs, maybe in March, and having some fun turning corners.
Washed Hellcat & gave it it's 2nd oil change today. However, my proudest achievement of the weekend is mother-in-law Cindy's Honda. After several years, it's shiny again! A wash, TWO waxes, and headlight lens cleaning later...now the shoulders are really sore. #Danielson get it? https://t.co/eBRrh06J70
I participated in a great cruise/show today, put on by Performance On Line. There were 250-300 cars, everyone got to drive around Lake Matthew's, and ended up at Evans Brewery in Corona. It was nice to put some miles on the Elco...and it handles/stops very nicely! https://t.co/eVqtGigS0j
@jim_essex Pretty surreal to be back in a building complex upgrading their entire network of elevators, and I was a helper and serviceman at the SAME buildings back in '88!!!
Happy New Year to all. I finally got the Weld Wheels/ Goodyear Tire combo installed, and I'm not sure I'm in love with the aspect ratio (sidewall height). But...tires are expensive (and I'm out of discretionary income), so these will have to last a couple of years. https://t.co/Oaej9qv13x
What did I get for Christmas, you ask? Why, ARP rear wheel studs that are long enough to work with the Weld Wheels! And here's proof: Me, after assembling some of the kid's gifts, sneaking off to the garage, to bring a bit MORE joy to my heart! https://t.co/Za3gsFupGC
Since I'm now apparently an "A-body expert", the Miller's invited me over to disassemble dad Keith's '69. They're big race fans, and son Christopher has helped me pack parachutes at the track, so it was the least I could do. https://t.co/9VTMyP3vnL
'Dutch, from Baer Brakes' is 'Santa, from the North Pole' as far as I'm concerned. Today he brought the Elco back and the brakes are significantly better! Master cylinder, front pad compound and pedal geometry were all factors. Thanks to Hal and everyone there for the effort. https://t.co/0JH5s5hOW6
