      It's time to be positive, this will be the last week for snow. I think we are all looking forward to some blue skies and warmer temps. 10 days to launch. The kids are coming this weekend to help clean up the car.

      Good luck, we didn't make the cut in time. Looks like a warm front coming in for us this weekend, so maybe it'll head your way! biggrin image

      Great things are happening. Had a white out today for about an hour--can't be any more snow left to fall. I'm on my way to Atlanta for one last business trip before we get down to car work. Exhaust is welded on so there won't be any more rattlin' around. Dyno tune on Friday to lean it out.

      It's about time to roll.

      I finally got my '77 TA out of winter storage last night. I know, I'm cutting it awfully close but I won't bore you with all the excuses! It hadn't run since October but started right up. I'll give it some serious TLC over the next 8 days and should be good to go.

      Missed the Run last year due to a broken foot, but made the '07 and '09 Runs as "DualCarbGuy". Or "Double Barrel" as Wayne likes to call me.

      Wish I could go with Wayne & Red's group Saturday April 9th from KC to Lincoln but can't leave KC til the 10th. So if anyone is passing through KC heading to Lincoln on Sunday the 10th, let me know so we can meet up and go as a group.

      Gettin' pumped!

      Justin,
      JesupTA and I will be coming through KC (Sun morning) or spending the night in KC area in route to Lincoln on Saturday night. We will arise early and continue to Lincoln. It would be a pleasure to have that double barrelled beast to run with for sure. I'll send you our cell phones so we can connect. yes image

      Time to wrap it up and pack it up. Dyno tune was awesome--it's neat to see and hear your car going 140 while it's sitting still in front of you. Now, it's squeaky clean ready for the trip to Lincoln--it'll never look this clean again. Hope you've had as much fun fixin' to get ready as I have.
