Met Joe B. today

Sheriff and I drove up to Spring Hill today and met Joe I bought his 3.73 rear end from him. Great guy and one amazing car. This guy drives car 90 miles ONE WAY to the track lays down a handful of 10 sec passes then drives it home. Oh yea he also drives it 100 miles round trip to work during the week.
Just bad ass!
He is in the process of a new bottom end for his motor I'll let him get you up to speed on that. He is a new member so welcome him in this thread.

Welcome to DC Joe.



It's kinda like we're standing around saying hello to someone who is'nt here. Oh, wait. He isn't here yet is he? And from what Dave and Steve are saying you should post some pics of the Vette so they wont have to drive back up there and stare at it anymore

Man, What a nice welcome guys......Now there's something that you'll NEVER see on some of the other Corvette sites)..........Yea, It was real nice meeting both of you guys (Sheriff And Raidmagic) when you came up to pick up the rear end......I'll have to head down to your guys neck of the woods here soon and check out that car show you mentioned.......I had at least a couple hundred really high quality digital pictures of my car, and pretty much "every" mod I did along the way.....But I had a pretty bad computer crash about a month ago, and I lost everything in all my files ....luckily I printed out about half of them for a Corvette album that I was putting together......I'll have to scan them,or just take some new ones to post up here real soon ...........thanks again guys.........Joe ..........Steve, make sure to let me know how the rear end works out for you

Hey this is how it was when I saw it.
I can't believe how clean it is to be driven that far each day.
