Oh, since you seem to already have a platinum membership, looks like second place will actually get that.
Hey buddy, it's going slow, but good. The crank is being machined now for the stroker kit and the heads are getting a 3 angle valve job done.

^ Long way to go? You're long and my long are 2 different things Your long is months, my long is years.


Been thinking long and hard, and decided not to go with either of the 2 I was planning on.
That was
Jimmer: 1st friend here, we know a lot about the other's car goodies that not many others know. Thats why, I think when his car is closer to being done, I will vote for him. As with mine, I may enter my 96 commuter later, but 96 project I dont WANT it to win until its further along.

Blackout: I've known him just under as long as James, and he's helped me (in some cases, not knowing! ) in designs of a Blackout design. Now as for the people who've seen the STREET EDITION, and the few who've seen whats under the cover of the SHOw edition, they know it isn't full blackout. BUT, it is darker, has blackened areas, and as I said, some ideas came from him.

My vote for this year is going to Paul (Daily Driver). Many things are small, many go unnoticed, yet it has a "wait a second, somethings different" style. That roof job is crazy, and he proved many others wrong about structure support (or we hope he did ) In the photos is looked as if a sheet of metal was just added to remove the roof option if anything. And the college person I can relate to.

So thats my vote for this year! And best of luck to all.

*And whenever that...beast of a Vulcan gets further, I think he knows before me even having to say, he's got my vote.
