Yey right!.... I'll work on it.....and work on it..... Mad Mad and then she'll drive it....Jjokin, in all seriousness, she loves getting dirty on the blocks and stuff. She knows her engine accessories, intakes, etc, etc.... so , I'm kind of well, f'ed..... She want's a big ol' cam and some different wheels already....It's like her plan of makeup for it.... Anyway.... Ya know what I'll be doing for a couple of weeks....UGH!

I've talked her into keeping it stock, all she wants is a small lopey cam. That's all she wants , along with maybe some wheels, but keep the originals. I can't wait to work on it this weekend. You guys have a good one.

Just thought I'd show ya pics and a vid of this weekend.... I was off Friday, and so the madness began. Dee(wife) helped tear down and build this one also. Same as my Turbo engine. Anyway. I had a bunch of stuff from preexisting cars to use, so, well, we used them. Pete Jackson gears, Crane Energizer cam, MSD distro, Holley performer, lifters, and I paid for a new alternator and a new water pump, oh, and the chrome valve covers, not expensive ones either. I had a couple of air cleaners laying around so, anyway. Here's the updates, my wife is a comedian, so just listen for the AVON joke. This is why me and her get along so good....GOOD HUMOR! HA!

Did some trading with Andy G on some wheels . Dee and me like the bowling ball wheels, but she wanted what either came on the car or something different than KR . Anyway. Thanks again Andy .
