June...

June went by quickly... to say the least.  Without a doubt!

I spent most of my free time in June working and playing with the 67 Firebird seen here. The car turned out to be a great ride.  Added an aluminum radiator, new wheels and tires and did a tune up and check the roller rockers and valve adjustments based on the engine builder's recomendations.  The car is solid and FAST!  I love it!

OK, so my problem is that I quickly got addicted to the power.  I have been into bikes for so long, I never realized that you can have pure excitment on four wheels.  This need for power set me searching for a bigger better 4-wheeler.  I felt I would soon be burried (financially) in this 67 and I wanted to start all the mods - leather interior, elaborate sound system.. I even start looking at entire front "clips" or an entire replacement front end complete with rack and pinion steering!  That front end parts cost just a meer $8,000.  The car does NOT need this work, I was getting carried away. I pointed my attention to the web and looked for a car with lots of mods at a reasonable price... to be continued ;)
