Well Bryan that is one sweet ride and a 0.90 g turn in an econo box is impressive indeed as with the stock suspension I doubt if you could hold a 200 foot circle at much speed at all.

Haven't I seen your car in Chevy Rumble or one of Primedia's mags?

Well with what you have here you are guaranteed coverage in Popular Hotrodding as all they request is a decent photo (and those more than qualify). With what you have built I can assure you someone would come to write an article on the car. Don't forget the Little Buckaroo who left Peterson Publishing (ed of Super Chevy and Popular Hot Rodding, Tech ed of Car Craft, etc.) and formed his own publishing company in Dayton, TN.

Bryan,

Sweet ride I like it a lot!

Question for you. I used to use Steve Sharp years ago (back in the late 90's) to build my trannys and was always happy. Then one day his number was disconnected and I couldn't ever track him down. Do you have any contact info for him or how I might go about getting in touch with him?

Thanks,

Tom
