Damn....haven't seen your name in a long time. Can't say I'm surprised that nobody has responded yet though as it's died down significantly.

So what have you been up to?

I just got back not to long ago myself. Couldn't get logged back on under my other user name that I had for like 15 years.

How are things over there in MS?

doing good buddy. you still got that baddazz stang?

Nah. Sold it back in '10. Bought a '69 fastback to make a street car out of about a year later. Couldn't really go racing as much with a wife and kid, plus the tracks here in AL are all horrible. You need a tubbed car with big slicks and a 4 link to hook with less power than my motor was making. So I sold the race car.

I decided I would rather have a street car I could actually use instead of just racing.

man i know what you mean.. cant race near as much as i use to .... but racing here has totally changed.. everyone went to street racing... so i've sold timebomb :( went bracket racing with my 66 chevy 2.. now building a street race car with a 62 chevy 2 ss.... its a double round tube chassis.. strange strut suspension... 4 link.. steel roof and rear quarters with vin.. 509 BBC with a 14-71 high helix blower.. alky injected.. glide.. 34x16 slicks.. just your average everyday street race car here.

Yeah racing has changed around here also. It's all about big money grudge racing. I guy I work with told me today about a $25,000 grudge bet this weekend at Montgomery. I just stick with the test and tune every few months. My car has a mild 351 in it, overdrive transmission, full weight. I can drive it anytime, anywhere I want.

Ugh, i can't stand the FB groups. I try to post on FB once in a while and it's like being a lawyer where guys will pick your statements apart in any attempt to discredit you and have their opinion reign supreme.

Forums have changed. While i spent my youth here and on another popular Mustang forum, i will admit that the clunky mobile version of corral keeps me only visiting when i can get on a PC.
