Thanks guys, I appreciate it. We have lot's of family coming in from all parts of the country. I'll be seeing you all next week at the BB Ford Bash.
I couldn't make a road trip without dropping in and making a courtesy visit to some of our customers and friends. It was good to see Travis Rice and his car, and I heard the engine run that he bought from Phillip Oakley. It's a 598 C-460 headed alum. block engine and is a twin to Bobby Small's. It has a set of my adaptors on it with the TFS A-460 tunnel ram on it and a pair of Quick Fuel 1150 cfm carbs on it. It's hitting a mean lick, and there's a certain Mopar Hemi that is scheduled for a match race, that's in trouble.
Also David/Lem, I was able to visit with our 'ol friend Andy Wright. The 500 C.I.D. engine that we delivered 3 years ago, is still going strong in his 1967 Mustang. The breaking news is that Andy has just finished building a new 2007 Mustang with a 572 C.I.D. engine and a set of our TFS A-460 heads. He fired it up today for the first time and Jason and I were able to hear it run. It's been a big thrash, but Andy is planning on bringing both cars to our BB Ford Bash. In this part of Virginia, they run Mountain Motors heads up, with the only requirement being a PowerGlide transmission.
I'm going to try to swing by Darryl Jewel's and visit with him. He's building a new combo with our Kaase P-51 heads. However, I don't know if time will permit.
