Well today I got my new KYB Gas Adjust shocks on all four corners of my Series I V6 Project Car.

Can't wait to get this thing off the stands and on the rubber see how they feel.

Chuck, I am not going to know how it drives for awhile. I am just getting ready to take it to the shop to cut the rear right fender off to be replaced.
Then paint, then engine back in, then wiring, then maybe I can drive it then. Hoping for about next time this year.

When I started to do the 62 over I thought one year and it would be back on the road.Well its going to be 2 plus but it is nearly done.don't know what I'll do with the HP this 302 will be putting out.I don't think it will be as docile as the 351 in the Lister.I'm not that speed crazy anymore.Must be age catching up.

Chuck,
Did you go to the SUNI in Park City Utah in 2004. I met a Chuck there who rode in my car around the auto cross because I was new at it and needed some guidance. Was that you?

The answer is no.I was in the Penticton ,BC area(Peachland) at that exact time with the 62.This turned out to be its last big run.It just didn't have the power anymore in the mountains.Still Scott Duncan who we met on the way out saw us on the way home.He wanted to know how bloddy fast we were going as he said we were passing everything and that was towing the matching fiberglass trailer. I did take in the Ralley in the Valley show and banquet.Met a few Sunbeamers who I remembered from the SUNI in Montana.Maybe we'll get over our loss of our son and get the 62 going on trips again.Just have to take day by day

Chuck,
Sorry to hear about your son. I can't imagine going through that. By design that is not suppose to be something we have to experience. Hang in there and keep up the work on the 62. Keep yourself busy.
God Bless.
