    Watched American Choppers last night. Have already seen pics of the cars (courtesy of DTB). Thought they did a good job of promoting TAD, but wish they would have shown the graphics on the "FireHawk"! That car is sooooooo awesome!!! Hoping they might show it next Monday!

    Sorry I can't resist captioning this picture. From left to right.

    Kyle, "yeah, I didn't have to wrench this SOB out !"
    Troy, "yeah, it wasn't my motor that let go !"
    Jerry (I guess) "Yeah, it didn't break on my Dyno !"
    Scott, " S*** I have to pay for this. Hello, is this Driveline Specialities?"

    Great pic Found Soul
    Just another day at the shop eh.
    Not so twisted DTB

    I've got a pic of the twisted driveshaft somewhere from the white car, apparently first time they tried to launch it it pretzeled and the car moved maybe 2 feet. I don't think Government Motors designed it for that kindof torque ;).

    Lemme go try and dig that pic up....

    Jerry, I heard ALL good things about y'all. You are a first class outfit !

    If I was the owner of Trans Am Depot I would have been very happy with last nights show. They mentioned the TAD name about 15 times and showed the logo A LOT. They showed the old shop too, which is pretty impressive with a bunch of cool muscle cars stored there.

    Next week's should be the good episode, especially since they didn't show any of the drag testing, so I am sure it will be on next Monday night. The White car proved that 1100 hp is a little much for a street car and slung the driveshaft all over the track . . . Right Jerry? DTB wasn't there but did see some pictures.

    Jim is still thrashing to bring his new Trans Am to the first 3 stops of the Tour . . . and the Starting Line Party. Custom Cars never fall together, keep wrenchin Jim and crew !!! I have a feeling y'all are going to be much busier, very soon.

    Cheers TAD, DTB

    Here's the dyno graph from the white TT Trans Am: http://www.diyautotune.com/american_...yno_graph.html

    We brought our dyno down to assist with the tune and the shoot -- played a pretty small role and just got a couple banners on the show. Figured people may enjoy a look at the dyno graph tho!

    I saw the cars at the Charlotte Autofest last month. I actually think the GTO has better proportions than the T/A, but I may be biased (owns a '04 GTO).

    I was just reading along thinking yeah, yeah, okay that is Sopchoppy all right . . . Then I get to the DTB line and busted out lauging. Several colleagues came over to my office to ask what was so funny ! I couldn't even answer them ! James, that was some funny shit and you caught me SO off guard. Didn't realize you had such a sense of humor. Bishir one , DTB zero ! I owe ya one.

    Cheers my friend . . . Ya SOB !

    Yes it is awesome. Now I have a picture of it in my driveway ! Jenny and I want it ! She likes the way it drives and I like the 600 hp ! Sr. drove the FireHawk for the first time in Gainesville (home of the Gatornationals) with his motorcycle boots on . . . and ran a 12 flat at 117 mph. So it runs and drives as good as it looks.

    We tried a twelve flat too at 55 Summer Street but ran out of room by the time we reached Main Street in downtown Sopchoppy Thank goodness for the big ass Brembo brakes !

    We will have one at the Starting Line Party . . . so says Jim. He will be driving his personal T/A. They are assembling it now. I say, "they have a lot of work to do in just three weeks" But hey we have all been there ! Good luck Jim and crew !
