Got the door handle swapped out on my bride's van. Not a terrible job, but not fun, either. Old handle was not completely broken, but was well on its way. Plastic handle, pot metal mechanism, and steel threaded inserts. Inserts were lightly rusting around the outside, swelling and cracking the housing. Pot metal mechanism was seizing up on the steel pin. It was time... Now we have one black handle and three white handles. Oh well, she's no beauty queen anyway. The van, that is. My bride is still as beautiful as the day I married her over 26 years ago.

It might freeze here tonight. A bunch of roads are closed due to flooding too. Nifty.

Won't be any 13's from a pretty much stock 5.3. If I do, I'll be scrambling to find a helmet for the next run.

Springs are repaired and the foam is on the seat cushion. I started repairing the spring assembly for the back rest assembly today. I hate going to all this trouble when I don't even intend to use them once I get into upholstery.

Got the column drop built, and installed. Just 2"x 2" box tubing that will get covered later to hide all the ugly bolts and plugs on the steering column.



Also got the bolt on covers for the trans tunnel bent up and installed. Just the slightest curve to get clearance to the 700R4 trans.



And the master cylinder and Impreza brake pedal assembly done. The plate turned out to be stainless steel! Was a real booger to hole saw the center hole for the operating rod. The 6 other holes I drilled and tapped to make it stay on the firewall if I pull the pedal assembly, or the master any time.
Still need to figure out where to run the top braces for the bake pedal to? It's a long way to the dash, so I might have to make up a support under the dash to attach the top of the pedal assembly to. It's very solid, so wont need a huge amount of support. Might come off the firewall with an angle support up higher.

Excellent track I went to. I got 9 passes in and stopped two hours before closing. No one in line by the time I was done. The last track I went to was a zoo and I only got 3 passes in.
All losses of course.


I had calculated 15.1 seconds using my HP Tuners logs from street WOT pulls.


My best time was 14.706 at 92.97 MPH
My best speed was 93.25 MPH at 14.711.


Rip snortin fun, for sure.
The car did exactly as designed. Fun street driving, and excellent mileage.


At least DELIRIOUS will win a few when she's done, unlike last night, even getting beat by a bloody KIA, for Pete's sake.


Stopped at my sister's on the way home. She wanted a snort, so I took her for a spin and some fish tailin'. She had a blast.

You sound a little stoked. Chix dig fishtails. I'll take your word for it because you're Pugsy, but others may not be as easily convinced that you have matched GTP performance and MPG.

My trashy one feels like a pop tart today. Frosted Grape.

Damn, you should live somewhere warmer like Canada.......ha...

I'll have to check the MPG again. I'd hate to pass on incorrect info. However, it's quite good for sure.

Oh yeah, slips or shut up.......

Oh yeah, the worst thing of the track being so fun, it makes one want to build a dedicated drag car.

Muuuch better! I have vid of a 14.2 in my 69 but the slip is I don't remember where. In primer with a 400. Fishtailed a smidge on the 1-2. The P gets 30+ hwy but daily use is about 21. Whole car is probably worth the price of your trans rebuild parts, if that. Just bench racing.

I was wondering just how long it would take to get a zing out of anybody about the weather. First fluke frost, cold front.

Now go play with sheetmetal and you have the makings of a fine weekend.

You have room to carry slicks and a jack, choose your boost. When I bested in the J it was by switching from 235/75R15s to 255/60R15s in the pits. Went from 14.6 to .2. Play. You have a kid to guard tools and tires in the pits.

I got the seats and center console out of the Chevelle, and then ripped out the carpet. The carpet fell apart on the way out... scraped out the sound deadener, and this is what I found on the driver side. Not too shabby. Pass side next, but gotta get some mowing done, and a buddy is heading over to pick up the poncho 400/th350 for his 67 Lemans.
