it's down to the wire


i know i promised that this would be a daily occurrence..but honestly, easier said then done. so please don't throw stones at me!

The GTO is coming along has till sunday morning before it gets on the trailer for SEMA and it hasn't fired yet. this is nothing new to us..we have built cars in 4 weeks...a few in 3 weeks...we won't go there..those were some dark times.

I know you don't come on here to listen to me talk so I will hold you up no longer.

here are some photos that have been waiting in the wings to be posted. Ps. if you click on them they get bigger. tah-dah!

us, stressed....naw

I got to work this morning with high hopes of the GTO frame all together. Unfortuanly life got in the way at the shop this weekend, and we didn't have the chance to get everything we wanted to done.

I'll post photos as soon as I hear a wrench is moving on the frame...but until then,

over and out!

seeing the light at the end of the tunnel..

Now when they decided to take the perfectly good GTO and remove it from it's frame, in the short time frame we have mind you, I was worried, they were worried, all of us were worried. Alas, it was past the point of no return and once it's there you have to keep looking forward. At that point all I could do was point skyward and say "please help us."

When I pulled up into the parking lot this morning I saw a sparkling new frame, mind you, I see lots of these every day so it didn't register right away that Embee had picked up, cleaned, scrubbed, AND powder coated the GTO frame in less than a day and a half....

They are supermen.

Now that the frame is back, the guys will attack it like a pack of dogs on a three legged cat to get all the new suspension, brakes, and what have you on it so it can be placed back under the GTO body, which is perched sadly on our lift at the moment.

More photos of the build tomarrow, until then...

Over and out!
