Vegas Divisional -- no Pomona, we'll see, right now we need to regroup. I'll be there, but not sure about the car yet.

Thanks WC1 for the kind words, hell autoimagery didn't even post any pictures from dallas, almost as if we weren't even there, that's it, it was my imagination :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just thought I'd let you guys know that we're doing a make a wish foundation car show at Rudy's BBQ in Austin tomorrow.

Monday at Chili's for St Jude Childrens Cancer Research.

We have a mock up motor in the car, but at least it looks beefy.

Can't fire it, no pistons or rods (those things are over rated anyway LOL)

But hopefully we'll raise some $$$ for the cause.

I'll let you know how it goes. Have a good weekend everyone

Thanks you guys. The Make a Wish was Great!!! approximately 250 hot rods showed up. We filled the parking lots of Rudy's, an italian grill, and the Outback Steakhouse. The silent auction went well too. They are supposed to give me numbers of the total cash for donation, so I'll let you know. I sat about 50 kids in the car and everyone was amazed at the 1/2 of piston we had left.

St Jude's today was a smaller crowd. The district manager admitted after seeing the car that he wish he'd done more for the advertising. But the place was packed after 7:00 pm and all proceeds from all the Chili's across the country are donated from today. So next year, he wants to advertise it on the car at Ennis for this day to bring much more awareness.

Also got approached to do some Teenage Drug Awareness days with the car and speaking/involving the kids. So, I'll know more details about that coming up soon.

I hope it helps to bring joy to some families. I've met some very kind people over the weekend and broken motor or not, they all loved the car!!

Thanks for all your kind words guys, I'm supposed to have access to a video that was shot on Saturday, So I'll let you know.
