Thanks Spark.......

It seems that neither of us accomplished all we wanted to.

We will probably both try again.

Wishing the Target 550 team reaches all of its goals in 2014.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Happy New Year to everyone.

2014 will be a year of excitement in the Target 550 camp.

It starts with the Grand National Roadster Show display and

will finally include timed runs.

Our first post for this year shows the car with a new appearance.

Thanks for your continued interest in our project.

Jason's skill in making the fuel tank is truly "old school". Having attempted gas welding aluminum I can tell you it is not a cake walk! I still need a lot of practice before I would even attempt to do a project like the tank Jason has built using mostly gas welding. I had a couple of old friends, both passed now, Don Borth and Doane Spencer that could gas weld aluminum and carry on a conversation at the same time and make it look like the parts literally just flowed together. As Jason has shown one of the really great things about gas welding aluminum is that , when done by someone with the level of skill that Jason has,  the welds have great penetration and are completely water tight and the amount of post working of the weld area is only a small amount of filing and sanding. Beautiful job!!

Just a little teaser:  You probably won't be seeing the blue car for the foreseaable future.  We may decide to show/run the other car.  LOL!
