Finish the motor install in the trunk and run the car backwards.....that way you can say you chewed up a mudstain in reverse!

We'll see you there!
 
wow. good luck. im in the same boat. trying to get the car ready for the WCN
 
Wow, you got a few days worth of work ahead of ya.
I've been in the same boat as you, couple of long nights and a weekend or two and it'll get done.
Good luck and hope to see ya in Noble....... with your car.
 
just got this done a few minutes ago, spins like its on roller bearings:) now to double check the rod sizes, rinse them off, & get them in. with the pistons attached of course:rolleyes:

keep working.. we need more buicks at Noble

I second that! We lost last year because we were 9 Buicks short. It is amazing how the mustangs come out of the wood work and some Buick owners chicken out. We need to take one back this year.

Looks good, lookin forward to seeing it in person. Wasnt planning on racing my car, but if we really need the numbers then I might bring it.
 
thanks!! & you better race it, you won't drive it any harder down the track than you ever have on the street, & its legal to do on the strip. i loan you my slicks for a pass if i have to.

definitely bring it.... i don't want to drive all the way up there to get beat by the mustangs again;) :D (although its funny, ive been 3 years now and the only year i lost my race, the buicks have won. Maybe i should lose.)
