  1. Happy Bday To...

    The Man Bobby Johnson!!! I was telling Rodney about this video, a few Sundays ago. You know, they are bringing NMCA back to Memphis, next year.

    Thanks, guys!!!
  3. Random thought thread

    Just being 9 months into parenthood, we're still undecided over whether or not we want to try for another child or if we want to adopt. Adoption came to be a topic very close to our heart, so it is a strong possibility, if we do decide for Mags to have a brother or sister. My step-sister and her husband are currently starting the adoption process. As a pastor, and a follower of CHRIST, I believe that all Christians should support adoption. It is such a strong part of the doctrine of salvation.

    Congratulations, Adam! We were at our last straw, dealing with infertility, and looking into starting the adoption process when we got pregnant with Magnolia Grace! Congrats, Disney!

    Before you do that, maybe trading labor for some pastoral marriage counseling. LOL
  8. Prayer Request

    My wife teaches 6th, 7th, and 8th grade English for a local private Christian school. A couple of weeks ago, she received an email that one of her girls had a spinal surgery (she has grown up with spinal issues and multiple surgeries), and due to complications is now paralyzed from the waist down. Doctors do say that there is a possibility of her recovering from the paralysis, but are not sure at this point if that will happen. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to visit this young lady and her family, at Vanderbilt. You will be hard-pressed to find as sweet a girl as this one. While very scared, she is still optimistic, laughing, and joking. Her parents, too, are very sweet people. Please be in prayer for Riley and think about what it must be like to be 12-13 years old and find out that you may never walk again.

    As soon as his schedule clears up, I'm loading the Nova up and taking it to Ashley's brother. Hopefully, he can get some progress done to it, for me. Also, I was able to score a set of Caltrac bars for the car. They had about 10 passes on them when the guy decided to change the car over to a ladder bar setup.

    I've been buying some parts for a while, but last weekend, I finally got to start to work on the car Nova. After ordering leafsprings, shackles, body bushings, and a new gas tank, I had bought pretty well everything I needed to get the car back on the ground and get it moving under its own power. My plan, for last weekend, was to put the new springs under it and put the body bushings on, and hopefully put the new gas tank in. Then, this weekend, my plan was to start the car and let it run for a while. Unfortunately, as often happens, my plans were derailed a bit. I did not make near the progress, I had hoped for, last weekend. And, then today, I received my third backorder notice on the gas tank. Despite a scheduled ship date of 11-21, it is now scheduled to ship on 1-12-15. As soon as I get the car setting on the ground, instead of up on blocks, I'll post some pictures. Please keep in mind that this may be the interweb's slowest build thread (No comments, Ashley P!).

    You might actually ought to be worried considering who he works for. LOL
  12. 2005 "GTO" driveshaft

    The customer would normally do the work himself, but didn't have a way to press the bearing in. He's a pretty good dude to work with. I wouldn't worry about him screwing anybody over.
  13. Transmisson floor jacks

    If someone will give you money for it, take it. After thinking about it, I really don’t have a place to put it. That, and what you said about the snakes. Hahahaha

    I might be interested in the light duty one. What are you wanting for it?

    The column shifter feels a little odd, so it could have to do with it. Off the top of my head, I don't remember where the neutral switch is. I can get the one for my new shifter, and hook it up in place, and I think that will cure the issue. I'm assuming you are speaking of LJ's 68 442. I had heard that he had picked it up from Rodney's.

    Cam - tempting. I pulled the passenger side header off to mess with the starter. The solenoid won't do anything. I believe that, when Dad unhooked my B&M shifter and hooked the column shifter back up, he ended up with the trans in gear or something. So, I need to get the car up in the air, so I can get my fat self under it. LOL

    I saw this one on a Nova Facebook group, of which I am a member. I was going to put Torq Thrusts on mine, and it's the same color mine was, so it gave me a good visual. I have actually messed around with mine a bit in the past couple of days.

    So, I got motivated, this weekend.
  20. Random thought thread

    The other day, somebody told me that I was one of the old generation of "Behind the plant racers." I guess he's right, but at least I haven't stooped to having a "peppy" Corolla.

    For me, I remember how fun it was when we built the car, the first time, in 93/94. 20 years after I tore it apart, after wrecking it, it and I have changed. LOL
  24. Return of Raceall

    Except for the sheetrock, I might feel more competent with the house than the car, at this point. Hahahaha

    Oh, and the 5000lb bumpers.
