So tonight at the monthly Plant City show I am walking around with Dad (bob88) and we head back to the cars there are a few guys hovering around my car. When we walk up a guy parked next to me pointed and said "he owns it" and Guy #1 just starts bombarding me with questions. How did you do this? Where did you get that? Then the big one,
Guy#1 "Who put that supercharger on there?"
Me: "I did."
G1: "No, really? Do you do that for a living?"
Me: "Na. it's just a hobby. Why don't you buy one and we'll do it to your car."
G1: "Man this car is amazing, you did a great job."
Me: "Thanks"

There was a ton more to the conversation I won't bore you with but this is the first time I got to bring it to the PC show and I'm there every month. I have been taking dad's T-bucket but the "my cars not ready yet" excuse ran out of time so I had to get mine together and bring it.:laughing:
It was just a great feeling to have put all the work into that I have and have people just gush all over it. Asking me questions about the gauges and interior, SC and such. It was like being a proud papa all over again and to be able to say "I did it" was just an awesome feeling.

I can't wait to get back out there and see it.

If you are ever zooming east with that beast, drop down my way.
I'd like to swing by but just to check out your 85. My car is boring next to that one.

Sweet deal dude! Your car has come a long way, and deserves all the respect it gets. I still remember the tan interior and steel valve covers.

That's pretty badass, but you'll never catch me in Plant City.

It's been a loong time but a group of us used to go when we had a local F-body group together. Most of us couldn't participate because the cars were too new. A few of the '69 owners did though and we supported them. IT was kind of a hometown carnival atmosphere. Local talent, neat old cars, carnival food...the smell, sounds, sights were a blast. Just got old after a while:( Been a couple years though. Maybe it's time to do it again:thumbsup:

Raid, congrats on the compliments:cheers: I'm sure thery're well deserved. You gonna post up some good pics of that dash any time soon or did I miss them?

BTW, happy fathers day bro:cheers: :cheers:

That is one of the best parts of doing mods...second only to driving down the road knowing you built it!!!! :partyon:

Congrats!!!!!! :thumbsup:

I am sooo looking forward to finishing one of my projects..... specifically the Vette!!!

It's evolving again. I feel kinda like Jeff and his stereo.:laughing: I am taking it apart as we speak to try something else. Stay tuned.
