    Friday
    Yep, with the rose festival skating rink (err, rose festival curves)
    You should tell him, my dad is at the Hanger in Carver every Friday morning at 7:30 - where the pictures were taken, there is an impromptu car show - then everyone gets breakfast at the Hanger or the Carver Cafe (a block or two east). Dad eats at Carver cafe.... which, I didn't remind him, but he thinks he worked on it - nope, my brother and I installed the hood... a long, long, long time ago.

    I'll be back at PIR July 15-17 for Optima

    now in aluminum


    but wait, there's more


    then load up and go


    to here


    with a brief stop to see parents - and their Corvette


    Did SCCA Track Night in America at PIR. that was fun, car stayed together and seems ready to run at Optima. Exhaust was quiet enough that I may remove the cones - then if there's a problem, just reinstall them. They kind of kill top end speed... but the rule is this - they give you a warning, then you can fix it, and it's fine, but you have to tell them what you did.... so if the cones aren't there and it's too loud, I'll know that by putting them back in that I'll be okay....

    and wow is that concrete slick at PIR.

    It's time to get ready for practice at Portland international raceway and Optima

    by fixing a bent bracket

    I think I may have touched a tree with the spoiler... oops



    bracket had to come off (not fun)



    and got a repaint



    the guy I bought the house from owns a shop with water jet - so he's going to cut out brackets for me. I want the spoiler to move back, but Optima requires that the spoiler be no taller then 8" above the highest point of the deck.... so two brackets



    measure the highest point with a box top






    so these two bits...

    my entire focus is moving.... worst case I disconnect the pump from the rack if the track complains

    I did too

    Indeed he did, and enough postage for a regular letter. Ebay is now on this - seems he was gaming the system.....
    Far too many examples of "gamers" these days!

    it's fun - the first response was "we told you" then the next thing I get is a return slip.... no, he may have thought to put that on the listing - however, he did not.... ah well, all's well that ends
