Cool. I have a friend in Mainz now who works for Opel as a designer. He may be up for track outings sometime...

And now GodsRods Duster III is up on jack stands about 2 inches away, so it'll just about take an act of congress to get the Challenger out now. Wink

You should have no worries. When was the last time Congress acted on anything. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yeah, and WE elect 'em! Rolling Eyes Laughing

Okay, enough of politics. We'll get in trouble and Charrlie and I can't do that 'cuz we're s'posed to be moderators & stuff. Laughing

Anywho,... I hate putting all this fun stuff back in storage again, but that's the life of a military guy. Sad

I was kinda kickin' around the idea of sneakin' a 904 tranny case and a bare block in my household goods so I can fiddle around with building one of them HA/GR kinda cars while I'm in Germany. Shocked I'll tell 'em it's a motorcycle when I come back so they'll ship it back for me. Laughing

Hey Stan! Is that aluminum block you just bought too far gone to build..? Ya wanna sell it to me for a "mock up"...? Wink

I'll be moving back to Kentucky in late July, so I can start back to work on my various projects. The Challenger is still up on jackstands cuddled up nice and close to the "Dennis Duster" and my '72 Dart... In a 2 car garage... Shocked

So it will take a little time just to move things around enough to get to the Challenger, much less work on it. Not to mention BOTH complete sets of keys to the garage, all of my tool boxes and all of the vehicles were misplaced in the move back in 2014. Don't ask. I don't understand it myself... Sad

But I'm anxious to get back to all of my Slanted fun!! See you all soon! Very Happy

The Clay City race this last weekend was awesome! It is so good to be back around the Slanted Family again.

Norm Foster even let me race the former "Slanted Attitude" Dart on Sunday!

I have a couple goals in mind for the Challenger for the 2018 racing season.
(Yes, that means I actually have to WORK on it... Rolling Eyes )

I have made some progress toward digging it out of the garage... Some, but not much... Angie would prefer that I help unpack boxes in the house before fiddling in the garage... Laughing

Stay tuned...

Rob, great to have you back! Please tell Angie that I enjoyed meeting her and talking with her. Hope to see her again at a race or banquet.

Yep, work on house unpacking then hit the cars hard...

Lou
