No big plans for the winter, just a new converter and some leak fixes

Light load for me as well, I'm hoping :cross .

Demon needs a Carb tweek, serviced and cleaned.

HP2 is having its lifters pulled sent to comp cams and rebuilt.

Burnt Orange Road Runner needs to be serviced and cleaned.

My biggest project is coming up with a new Pure Stock SuperCar for 2017. The 71 RR has been retired from the track.

It's going to be a quiet winter :cross I hope.

I may put some gear and cam in the 1969 Road Runner vert and go play with Bill Dicicco, John Sweeney and the rest of the 13's gang :pop

Or build the 1964 with a 426 Street or Max Wedge and a push button or maybe a :gears

Your right, I think I'll haul the 64 plymouth to Macco for a quick paint job. A 426 max wedge should do the job.

Not much on my ride since I am still driving it which I do right up to the first snow. Basically looking to upgrade my rear with an upgraded bearing cap girdle and to change the spider gears so I can go from a 17 spline axle to a 30 spline axle. It is something I need to do since my axles right now already have a 1/4 turn on them already. If I do that it should minimize my rear issues with the impala.

I plan to put the bench back in my 69, and some other details

After some planning i think the 55-56 s/c build will be too much so i will keep bringing the nova.

Well, this fall I finally admitted to myself that I was never going to get around to finishing my '70 T-37 build… so I traded it for this. 1979 400, 4 speed, 4 wheel disc car. I'll keep driving the Lemans for now, but my son... or maybe even my wife will be banging gears in the TA at a few events next year. :gears
