After what seems like an eternity, the 240sx project is finally coming together. With a lot of help from Dale & Chris, the car finally made its autox debut this past weekend at El Toro, CA. As with most projects, we were up until the wee hours of the morning getting the final alignment and double checking. Even then, after morning runs, we had to recheck & adjust some bolts, nuts, and fluids. She ran GREAT! Lots of little stuff to still do, but overall the car feels pretty solid. My good friend Donny from was able to take a few pictures of me & the car.

I also was able to get a video from a fun run I did on Sunday:

The boys at the HotRod Hotel are making some progress on Ed’s 1950 Willys. It’s receiving a monstrous heart: a V6 Turbo with Quadrajet carburetors (the kind you find in a ’71 Ford Mustang Mach 1 with a 429 block). This little Willys is going to go FAST! Can’t wait to see it finished.

Dan’s been working hard on his cars, and he’s very recently got all of them running! His Charger, Challenger, and El Camino are all working great. Congrats & get ready for those car shows, Dan!
