March 2023

With 2022 in the rear view mirror, 2023 is looking even better!

While rebuilding Grace is still on the horizon Project Calvin is in full swing. The frame is almost completely stripped down, items have been discovered that will be easy to address while the truck is down to a bare frame, and then reassmbly can begin. I'm hoping I'll be installing some Olds power on the reassembled frame this summer or fall, then bodywork can be done and reassembly in time for a mid-2024 reveal.

The conversion of Grace to a SCCA RallyCross® car can get started once Calvin is at the body shop. I still only have one garage stall, so space has to be shared. We might be able to use the garage at the "other" house (renovation project) for some of the tear-down work, but think the bulk of the rebuild/conversion will be in the garage she was first built in (or outside).

Speaking about the house I grew up in, work over there is also making progress. One of the first projects is the garage mentioned above, at first it will be used to house items we'll be putting in an estate sale, cleaning out room in the house to start some major projects that are pivotal to other progress on it.

A new support vehicle has joined the "herd" here, a 1978 3/4-ton Chevy pickup that will be used to move parts around for both Calvin and Grace as they are rebuilt. Once Calvin is fully-functional, we'll offer it up for sale -- with some upgrades since it was bought.

Please continue to support local racing -- I'm working on the A/Q Wiring front at Asylum on new cars they're building, and the drivers of those new cars can use all the support you can give.

Thanks as always for stopping by, I hope to make updates more often on how we're progressing.

Take Care!
