Default Murphys law strikes again.

For the last month we have been thrashing on our 1966 Chevelle convertible to get ready for the Power Tour. We have completely rebuilt the suspension with Baer brakes and a full AIRRIDE Technologies Suspension system. We also scrapped the carbed 350 and turbo 350 trans for a Brodix headed 383 with electronic fuel injection and a 700r4. We put a set of Billet Specialties 17x9 wheels and a full Billet Specialties accessory drive set up on the front of the motor. We got the car fired up and running and here is where Murphy stepped in. First all the A/C and heater hoses are stainless. We had them all made and sent them out for polishing. Well they arent done yet. Second we ordered a Billet master cylinder for the car and the manufacturer decided that the first ones they built needed to go to the TV shows instead of us. So at this point the Chevelle wont make the tour. We decided last nite that we were still going to have a car on the tour so we pulled the 1993 Camaro Pace car out of storage and cleaned her up.

If you happen to see us stop on by and say hello.

Murphy's Law struck my buddy Andy too. We were supposed to leave at 6:45 this morning, but during the middle of the day yesterday his tail lights and brake lights on his '68 Camaro stopped working. doh!!

So, we are getting a little later start than we planned.
