Yeah, that would have been me. Should have called out anyway, I wasn't in any sort of rush.

I'm just trying to get out and get to some shows or cruise nights. I don't have the time to really work on anything lately so its great to have a car that needs nothing.



Also still trying to sell the red notchback GTA but staying firm on price since its not a NEED to sell situation. Still have the white GTA, needs a tuneup and a brake line, been sitting since 2013. Maybe one day.

Between working a main job and a side hustle three nights a week (towing for a friend) while juggling a home renovation and doing ďfamily-orientedĒ activities with my wife & 2 year old daughter, I have a donor 2006 Suburban with a 5.3 in my driveway that I hope to yank out within the next month or two for the Trans Am. Iím currently in the process of pulling the hammered 305 out of the Trans Am. By the time I get any free time to work on it, I get slapped with a honey-do list which includes home decoration projects that my wife canít complete lol. In all seriousness I love it.

Today I test drove a TRD Pro since the dealership is offering me over $9,000 not to buy out my lease on my current Tacoma. Iím hoping to sign the paperwork tomorrow.

Itís good seeing familiar names still around. I drove by Hooters on 23 in Wayne this morning and it brought back memories of Friday nights.

If the weather holds out I am going to go with my 67. Trying to take the car out more with the kids this summer.

Will be at Cops n Rodders tonight. I really like the drive from my house (Somerville) up to Hackettstown. Great backroad driving roads.

glad to hear that you are getting some autocross seat time. Good stuff. you will be dialed-in for the July UMI autocross thats for sure. I'll probably be showing up to that completely untested.

Car show coming up on Fathers Day at horseshoe lake park here in Roxbury, I hope to attend that. Been doing regular street driving with the car but no racing in the coming weeks. way too busy

Man I don't know what brought me here...maybe a mental time machine. I was sorry to see traffic on this board become almost nil, as I spent a lot of years here. Good times remembered. Anywho I'm still messing with Turbo Mopars and have a 91 Spirit RT that should have 700 hp come 2023. Different strokes...

I should start a thread. it went 12.14 on motor on a 26" tire. Possibly doping out a trans issue right now. but i got it registered too and plan on driving it some, as i havent had a street driven project car in like 4 years. atleast it looks good and sounds good

I loved the turbo mopars back in the day, had a 84 turbo z daytona and a 87 Shelby z daytona. I'll definitely have to check out that spirit when its done.

Local AX got canceled last week, but optima auto-x at UMI was fun.

Going to start the power steering project in the 67 this week.

Might hit Hamilton Tap Room cruise night tomorrow and/or Robbinsville on Thursday.

swapped out the lakewood 90/10 drag struts and installed the front sway bar since I am not planning on drag racing for a few months. Put the koni yellows back on and took it for a test drive. I have had the drag struts on and sway bar off the car since september of last year and I got very used to how it handled. I had to re-learn how it handles with the konis, but that was fun. I wiped down the car and engine bay also.






might try to get to the fathers day car show this sunday at horse-shoe lake park, but gotta see how things work out with my wife delivering our baby within the next few days.
