February 2022

Hopefully this finds everyone safe and looking forward to a better 2022.

Since my last update things have taken a turn for the better, and despite the setbacks from the pandemic I have been able to get projects started and realigned -- it's my hope that by the end of 2022 I will be in the process of rebuilding Grace in line with our new plans.

First of all, I want to reveal the new direction of Project Calvin. This is the first necessary step towards being back to competition -- building a good, reliable truck to haul the trailer that we'll be taking the car to events with. It makes no sense to have a car ready to go and no way to get it there. Our trailer will either be replaced or upgraded as well before we tackle to conversion of Grace to a SCCA RallyCross® car.

We were devastated to learn about the passing of Dave Smith, owner of Dave Smith Engineering in early February. As is posted on our Team Members page Dave was influential in my early days of Oldsmobile ownership, and was the one that had the specialty pieces we used on our "roundy-round" (as Dave called them) engines in 1992 and 1994. Our hearts go out to his family, I know the loss of losing my father -- even nearly 25 years later it still hurts.

My new employment is allowing me to get projects at the house I grew up in working and pursue the truck project at the same time, it's nice to see something that will go a long ways towards our participating in motorsports start to take shape.

Please continue to support local racing -- I want to see racing thrive locally, and to do that they need participants and spectators.

I'll keep trying to keep this updated, thanks again for your support.

Take Care!
Ken
