          dabar39 we've been running a few short dirt tracks here in Central Iowa (Independence, Vinton, Marshaltown, and Boone). This was our first year in a modified so unfortunately the car doesnt look quite as good yet

          I'll get some more pictures of the car rounded up and post them for you...

                  Yep - I got 5 of them from one of my former employers - they were going to pitch them. Just took a little cleaning and some paint. Room for lots of tools, gaskets, and templates...

                        willy, I have had the opportunity to run a friend of mines modified for 6 weeks when he was injured on the job and could not run it, but needed someone to run the car for points. I had a he!l of a time behind the wheel and did the best I could with an unfamiliar car, did a couple of top fives with it but nothing sensational, not to mention the fact that I use a 17" seat and the seat in the car was only a 15" seat. All they had to do was grease up the seat and throw a Twinkie in the car and my fat a$$ fit right in. It was only a mid pack car but I still had fun anyways, gotta love them modifieds, dirt or asphalt. Dave

                          I'm the one Dave warned you about

                          Willy,

                          Very impressive shop. I'm envious. But more important to me........

                          Nice Modified

                          Can't help it. I'm addicted to them. I have to build two across the winter for the same fellow (I'm crew chief for him now but he just sold his car to his brother) I'm working on 6 modifieds for 3 drivers on the same team right now, next spring should make 8 cars total.... 4 Asphalt & 4 Dirt. If I count the other mods I work on in my spare time & at the track, I should be somewhere around 12 that I work on right now between our local track and my other team in Calgary.

                          I have to ask for some info on yours...

                          Home Built? Harris? Dirt Works? BMS? Lou Fegers? Flexi Flyer? GRT?
                          What kind of rear suspension? Bird Cages? Panhard Bar or J Bar?
                          Shoenfeld Headers?
                          383 Stroker? 406?
                          Etc. Etc.

                          I really enjoyed all of your pictures. I like the closeups of the engine compartment of your mod too. I can't remember the last time I saw reed valves installed in the collectors for crankcase scavenging. Brings back memories. Most of the guys up here just mount double valve cover breathers on the passenger side. You said you ran Boone? Must be nice. Some of our Canadian boys have ran there. So far I think we've had betted luck in Vegas at the "Duel In the Desert" (sp?) Wheeler Boys out of Calgary finished 5th with his Ensign chassis.

                          Enough of my ramblings about stock cars.
                          Very Nice shop.
                          The little girl in the photos looks to be the next generation of racer.

                          Later,
                          Jason
