    Yo! Good to see you post firechicken81,...glad things are going better for you and best of luck at the races!!
    Hey nutchevy! Glad you had a good time with your daughter, et al! Welcome back.
    I've been driving my "new" '98 LTD 4Runner lately, so my Camaro has been "resting". It needs the original suspension redone. I'll be rebuilding the "A" arms and adding beefier coils as well as replacing my leafs ASAP. This fall/winter.
    FRANKENTRUCK showed at Summerfest in the Rockies in Loveland early July, and now has a 10,000/12,000 lb receiver hitch. Time to go to work!
    Todd.

    Yo!
    The Camaro is getting a chance to rest it's weary old bones in the garage, awaiting suspension rebuild, while I put miles on my 4Runner. Might just re-paint the satin black while I can!
    FRANKENTRUCK is getting final bodywork/primer completed right now.
    Hope all of you are doing well!
    Todd.

    Yeah, cars (and trucks/tractor), house, the place,...always something to keep me busy around here,...in my spare time!
    A newly installed furnace system and preliminaries for an addition to the house are keeping my attention at the moment.
    The Camaro is still relaxing. I'd like to start it's suspension rebuild in Nov-Dec,...can anybody tell me what their spring rates are for front and rear? Mine's stock '76, and I need to go with a stiffer front coil (for better performance) and as stiff a rear leaf as factory ever installed in Z-28 or SS to clear my 295x50x15s.
    Gotta get FRANKENTRUCK's timing perfect,...still not 100%. Sure runs like a BOOH (Bat Out Of Hell) though! Been draggin' cut trees and haulin' lumber lately. About time to start cutting wood for winter.
    Todd.

    Thanks for the update Todd! I hear ya about other things...just had our roof replaced and we got a new furnace last winter as well. Uggg. Not enough time to catch fish and work on the 'maro. Here's some of my latest pics. I pleased as punch to have traded fuel doors with ipud. He had my correct fuel door emblem too. It needed restoration, here's how it turned out:

    And got this stuff ready to go back on too:
