Hi everyone just wanted to update you all ! We fired up the lakester last night ! Man it sure sounds good !!! Trying to figure out now how to post the video ! There is nothing like the sound of horse power !!!!!  This little 302 GMC (Thanks to Jim Linder ) sure is going to be a "awesome heart " in our lakester !!!!  We are going to now make the test run to check everything out ,then get ready for Maxton in June !!!!

Ok here is the new update ! Trailer done , Lakester done and running ,now we are starting on the hauler !!! How about a 1949 Chevy Panel truck ? Yep we might as well build something cool to haul this stuff out there with !!! Going to get the front nova clip in this weekend !Should make the ride a little easier on the azzzz !! Got a 350 small block and 5 speed to put in it ! I will post some pix. this weekend ! Most of the trucks paint we already have stripped , we are going to go with flat red on the body and yellow fenders just opposite of the trailer . Should be a pretty cool rig when all hooked up ! We took the lakester to a local car show last weekend ,people around here were blowed away by it !!! Never seen anything like it !!! That is so cool !!!! Can't wait to meet everyone at Bonneville !!!!!

Late' st up date as of July 4th ! Well looks like everything is a go for Maxton and Bonneville this year ! We are finishing up the panel truck now ! I have since been building a dragster to play with ! You know more than a couple times a year ! It is a 1950's style "design"  I'm running a 235 straight 6 and it's getting close to being done ! The class is called HA/GR that I will be running in ! and has to be built from parts no newer than 1962 !!! Pretty cool ! Here is a pix. to check out !

Pretty clever how you've hidden the pedal linkage!

Let's see if I've got this straight -

You throw together a tank in 5 months . . .

and then you build a vintage inline digger in your free time before Bonneville?

Ah, to be young and disenfranchised again . . .

When you are born into this car building thing , like i was ! It's the only thing you can think about !So with my old man having built about 150 drag and pro street cars over the years , I have to follow suit  !!! Or maybe it is a sickness  !!! I'm actually starting on # 2 of the HA/GR cars now !! For my co-owner of the Lakester !!! Sucks now though with my new job ,I might not be able to go to Bonneville !!! Definately will make Maxton though !!!

I'm not sure what's wrong but all I'm seeing are the dreaded little red x's.

Have you used refrigerated eye drops?  I don't see any red X's.  Maybe you could tell me more about where you see them and I could maybe maybe maybe figure out why they're there.

Ah -- I see what Glen sees -- guess the photo didn't attach correctly.  Sorry for my earlier cornfusion.
