I spend way to much time on our 3 Lemons cars (not Lemans), we have a 1987 Porsche 924, a 1984 Audi 4000 and a 1991 Audi 200 and do about 5 races a year, when not doing that, I maintain my 2000 Corvette FRC for track days and coach with Hooked on Driving at local venues. Life is way to short to not be in the fast lane!


I will look for Mule Skinner's Viper at Laguna Seca!

I like to wrench on street rods. This '40 Ford is one of the dozen or so I've built over the last 20 years.

I like the glint added to the fender....

While I would love to spent my time with 4 wheels, I have not found the right vehicle, pun intended. I put my efforts into woodworking. We removed the couch, installed a computer desk with a recliner after removing the carpet replacing it with hardwood flooring and installing an electric fireplace.

That is a 5.7 liter Chevy small block with a 7R4 OD trans. Glad you like it!

Beautiful cars all! My dad had a '53 Ford pickup when I was a teenager, so yours brings back some good memories as does the '40 Ford coupe. My first car was a '40 Ford, but it was a sedan. After that was a '51 Chevy convertible that I loved.

At this point in my life (77) I'm trying to start winding down, but it isn't easy giving up projects. There is a homebuilt aircraft (CH 701) in the garage that still needs to be put together, the '75 Spit 6 that we've had 20+ years that I started restoration on two years ago, a dolly I'd like to modify to tow both our Tracker and Honda GL500 Silverwing on long trips, the two Honda CT90s (his 'n hers) that we load on the front and back of the Tracker and tow to the woods with the RV to ride. And the Honda S90 that is just for fun. Also the other vehicles which include a '94 Metro and 05 Buick (his 'n hers). And then there is the '78 22' Reinell cabin boat that we've had since '81. The Grumman canoe which doesn't require much, and the house which does.

Sometimes it's a bit overwhelming, but life has been great!

Steve
