I just ordered myself another set of wheels and some semi slicks to stick on them. Gonna run more track events next year, I'm booked in for a track day on the 16th Dec too.

Had to go 18"s for best tyre availability/cost, which isn't my first preference aesthetics wise... 18x10s with 295s all round should give me some grip though.

I never thought of using a pegboard to hang my project parts before, good idea. Now if only I had the extra wall space too. LOL.

Wife is getting me a 383 short block, side pipes, wheels, and fiberglass flares all for the 71 in the avatar. Guess who is writing the check though?

And from the Garage are Current projects I have out that I would like to get finished for Christmas!

In the back is the 12-Bolt Conversion with the last set sold from Tom's of true 4340 steel 30 spline inner & outer Axles in 1480 u-joint size! Going in my C2 Racer!

The front unit is a Super 10-Bolt with 30 spline inner and outer Axles in 1350 u-joint size and I have the Billet bolt on u-joint plates, but forgot to show those here! Going in my C3 Autocross car!

Well actually I have one 1480 and a 1350 in the front and back on each in the picture!

I already have another Super 10 in the race car, but moving that into a 3rd C2 Slalom car I have!

Heat treated spiders, and special crossshafts, etc., All drilled for 1/2 inch long studs!

A Virgin never used 1972 4-series case for the 12-bolt!

The sign is the actual shop rate sign out of Guldstrands second to last shop!

Hope everyone else can add more cool stuff to your rides!

I've purchased some front calipers from Wilwood.
I received my headers back from Jet-Hot.

Christmas is looking good around here.

Guess I need to start with new wood for the trailer so I can haul around the non drivable 71.
