The Shop will be going under construction any day now. I think they will be moving in to the end of the lower shelf to the right side.

I think I will give these 2 a run for the 1st blast.

The 55 is Pro Prepped and the Buick is a street car. So no big surprises coming. Or not?lol

Thanks guys, your all welcome to come do some passes if your ever around this neck.


Here is the temp shop the fellas set up. I am noy sure if i'm digging it that much.

This guy in the GS has some work to do and he don't care where he works on it!!!

Even though we aren't officially open, I was able to do a few warm up passes to see how the track grip was. These 2 liked the track set up. The Mopar kept getting the Goat at the end of the strip!!!

The GTO is Gorgous!!!!

I would almost say do them like they do the Munster's cars. Slim lines and use the die cast front end. If I was a bit braver I that's the approach I would use.

Haha I was chopping up a slimmy a little while age and it's more difficult than I expected. I have to get the guys with the welders to help a bit.

And I can't stop running!!!! I just sent a few in to get worked on over night so tomorrow is another day.

I was having a blast tonite with alot of cars but these 2 inparticular were an absolute blast!!! Ahhh can you say Vintage:woohoo:


The flame car is an absolute 10 and the other is a 6 but I run em all.

It's hard to get the courage up to cut a chassis the first few times. I butcher them without a second thought now... well, ok maybe with a second thought... but no third thoughts! :lol: I've only had 2 slimmies and cut one of them for this...







Looking back, I would have done it differently, but cutting the chassis would have still been required. This is a Maisto body, they sell 'em at Wally World, and the only one I've seen at mine anyway. They pop up on the bay once in a while, and rarely top 2 bux. Most of the cars they put out are modern blobs, this one being the oddball of their production line. It is a die cast, but is very light weight.

Another case of "I wish I was closer", Joe, I'm not much of a racer, but wouldn't mind hanging out in the tree house!! :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Drag on...

The picture of your GS with the primer and putty work...Great!

Love the work in progress type of cars just as much as the finished up ones.

Reminds me of High School as we were always fixing up our cars. Those were the days.

Bob...looks like you are having fun on your Dragstrip...zilla

Teach... your children well. Next gen Skylark fans.

My slot-kids are fans of your '70 GS. They loved this one, too, and it's white paint was far from perfect.

Dig the NJ inspection sticker on the windshield. (That's South Jersey, though. Might as well be a different state, right?)

Update from the Track Officials today:

Due to a bad batch of asphalt, the paving company has been fired and a stop payment on his check has been implemented. Really bad job on this track. Looks like a San Fran street with all the hills and bumps.

Next paving crew is due next week. We need a flat surface!!!


On to the next issue, the power company has been called. The supply is no where near it needs to be to power the entire property, so I will have to get on the power company asap!!!
