    In a last ditch effort to re-kindle any bit of manhood I have left, I spent the whole day yesterday working on the Buick.
    Hopefully, this self imposed intervention will up my testosterone enough that I won't be caught surfing the Mustang forums and listening to show tunes. :eek:

    Monday morning, heading back up to the lake for a week. Then back home for a week and then off to Speed Week at Bonneville for 8 days.

    Heading out to speed Week in the AM. I'm not looking forward to the 10+ hour drive, but to see my flip flops on the salt will be worth it.
    Danny Thompson is going to try to up his record from last year, with his dad's car. I plan on standing next to the car as it leaves the line.
    As of right now, it looks like we have a good track. The weather forecast for the next ten days looks optimistic.
    I will only wrenching on two cars this trip as one (The Firebird) couldn't make it.

    Only a girly-man would not have this place on their bucket list.

    Salt Fever...

    The track is a total POS this year. Lots of bumps and pot holes. This has caused lots of spins and even a few crashes. We twisted a drive shaft in the roadster yesterday. We should have the new one ready to go for tomorrow. So far, Danny Thompson has had the fastest car on the salt with a 435 mph pass. Unfortunately, he snapped a connecting rod on the back up run and is out for the rest of the meet. He didn't nail down the record he was shooting for, but he may get a big ass trophy for being the fastest mo-fo at Speed Week. Usually, the top dog here has been the speed Demon team. They have blown up at least one Kenny Duttweiler engine chasing a 400+ mph record.
    I guess if this stuff was easy, everyone would be doing it and have records. We still have a few more days left of action. Lots of strong drinks and skanky chicks at the casinos here.

    Might be a good location for a T6P event.;)

    Got the new drive shaft and did a run today. The track is still a POS. We just about spun the car out and had to abort the run.
    We'll try again tomorrow. I got some photos but can't figure how to get them to load here.
    I've got some bad ass go-pro vids too. They'll have to wait until I get back home. The internet is slow as snake snot here at the hotel.

    Got home late last night. Here is the roadster at the line getting ready to go.
    This is a 300 mph car.
