Mitch, hate to hear the motor blew.

Ron had a catastrophic driveshaft failure and, as I discovered when taking things apart, something big broke in the diff. I think the diff seized and the driveshaft broke, then it beat the crap out of the car underneath. He sold the engine and other stuff then gave me the (almost) rolling shell. I got the 4 speed rear axle and front suspension when I got the car, that axle is now under my 'street' J-H with the Toyota trans swap. All the other stuff is mothballed for when I do something dumb!

I was signed up for the 2014 Dragon Hillclimb II this September, I'm wanting to make the 2 minute club and with the boosted motor I think I have a solid shot at it. Unfortunately I have discovered that I have cancer and while the long term prognosis is good in the short term there won't be much racing. Drat.
