The SE is looking better all the time! Glad to hear you are going to keep it out of the weather. That will make your life a lot easier while you're restoring it. And its just too rare to leave it outside anyways. Also good to hear that you're almost back to 100%.

Moved back to Iowa last month, went to a car show a few weeks ago. Going on a cruise this weekend. I'll probably put more miles on my car this summer than the last four years combined.

I'm still in NE IL ... but the remaining member of my former MC family is sitting in a friend's barn near Effingham IL (4-5 hours south, depending on traffic). Was hoping to be able to bring it up here, but ... so far, no go.

I think I did an update in a one of the other threads, but by way of review:

First outing was Atlanta, held the second weekend in April. Not sure what I expected but it was hot. Hot hot.

I was all out of sorts: left the house later than expected, got to the track later than expected, which committed me to run a class quicker than I should have. The car really wanted to go between high 10 teens and low 10.20's - which just wasn't enough.

My three run average for True Street was 10.17 (which just wasn't enough for the 10.00 index). Same story for Nostalgia Muscle Car eliminations: I cut a Perfect Light but the car went 10.21 on a 10.00 index - which just wasn't enough.

Next up was Gateway Raceway in Madison Illinois, last weekend of May.

Holy Cow! what a different story. The "air" was phenomenal. Like "so perfect" it drew attention to itself. I don't think I've every raced in such air, and certainly not with this new motor.

I uncorked a string of 9.80 runs which, since the car is legal to 10.00, got me in trouble with the tech officials. After a couple detailed conversations we agreed that if I would wear the appropriate clothing (SFI 3-2A/5 jacket and pants, gloves, shoes and neck brace, as opposed to my usual 3-2A/1 pants and jacket only) they would give me a "one race waiver" on the car (cage and window net).

With that newfound liberty I was able to slow the car closer to 10.00 without the fear of getting thrown out.

End result: I won the True Street 10 second index with a 9.96, a 10.06 and a 10.02 for a 10.02 average. Also went a couple rounds in the Nostalgia category so I can conclude that a good time was had by all.

Next up:   Martin Michigan - July 23-25.  It was hot again, so the car wanted to go mid 10.20's.  I chose the "B" index for my Nostalgia Class (10.25) and was dead on....until.....I broke the trans.  My competition broke in Round 1, so I advanced to round 2 on a bye.  For round 2 I went up and staged the car, hoping my competitor would foul in some way (Narrator:  he didn't) but by then it would barely move under its own power.

As of last night the trans has been freshened up and reinstalled.  I ran it in the garage and the wheels go round, so after lashing the valves and some other maintenance I'll get it on the road and see how it does.

Remainder of the season:

Norwalk Ohio - August 27-29 (I have to skip this one because my daughter is getting married in my back yard)

Indianapolis - September 24-26

Woodward Dream Cruise is officially this Saturday (although informally started last weekend) but most of that duty falls upon the Grand Prix.

Keith, running sub 10 seconds is insane for these big cars! That had to be an absolute blast. Thanks for getting some much deserved recognition for these awesome A bodies! Keep us posted on your Indianapolis runs.

That is so cool Keith. For someone to take one of these cars, and run  those kind of numbers, in full street trim, on all motor is an accomplishment for sure. I love it. You have fine tuned everything on and in your car to work together as a well oiled machine. Nothing against turbos or blowers, those can both make gobs of power, to do this with only one carb and no giggle juice either. Only one word for what you have done. WOW!

Well, I am about to disappear for a few months on another crazy job. When I emerge I am going to buy a few sets of tires and and finish up the Laguna. I hope they let me go in a few months. Last time they kept me for a year.

I looked at the picture of your car in the garage up on the air once again. It appears that you do like I do. All my own work in a small place. These are what I made last year and use them all the time. When on all 4, I could take the trans out without any problems. In the bottom picture if you look close, you'll notice that there is a small 3 tall extention(?) to get it up just a little more. lol

So much rain this summer. I really didn't use my cars much. Didn't do anything to them aside from some maintenance. Really wasn't good here at all. It went by in a blink of an eye too.

I have been very busy this summer plus so I haven't got to do many projects on the Malibu.  I have driven it quite a bit and plan to keep doing so into the fall.  I had quite the fiasco getting new tires this year.  Long story short, I had to bring the tires back to the shop 4 times.  First time to get them rebalanced after the stick on weights fell off, second time to rebalance again because they vibrated, then replaced all 4 under warranty because they still couldn't balance and then I had a blow out because they didn't replace my valve stems and one failed on the highway.  I also got that tire replaced.  Finally the tires seem good, but what a brutal experience.

Man, that’s tuff. I hate spending money on new junk. I’m going through that with my new electrical fans. The new controller failed the first time I used the fans on my first start up. It just makes a humming noise. I had to make a jumper to turn them on. I called Derale and said that the controller fails sometimes. What? The first time that I use it? Yes, sometimes. Nice. Do you guys sell crankshafts? I want to buy one of those from you so I can take my complete engine apart after the first start. Silence on the phone. I think I just started ranting. Back to the tires; sorry to hear that. Good luck.
