    i'm outta here boys, do some last minute stuff to the caddy tonight, get a good nights sleep, then watch out tomorrow.

    my parting shot will be my usual throwdown, us WI boys can so you kids better be ready. nicky can attest to our consumption rate. last year we tore it up till bar time then ended up at some house party downtown above a bar and partied til 4am with a bunch of people we never even met before. not bragging, i just think it's something genetic, or maybe there's alcohol in our drinking water so we build up a tolerance.

    Well folks, I got it all mapquested out. We won't take I-35 through Iowa because it's a snoozefest, so we'll take 52 south, and connect with US-63, then I-380, then I-80, then I-74...then we're there. It's more fun, and it's 25 less miles. We should be there between 4:30 and 5:30, depending on what we do for lunch. We'll try to make it to the 4:30 dinner.

    Re: Midwest meet FINALIZED! Check in here!

    Well, today one of my cats decided to start failing again so my shit is rattling just like last year. I also lost my right sidemarker today. Thats pretty much par for the course I guess. Shit always gets messed up right before a meet.

    Oh well. HAHA!

    For the races, what do you guys have that's comparable with the LT-1 Brougham in terms of 1/4 mile acceleration?

    Re: Midwest meet FINALIZED! Check in here!

    Well, not so great news. I STILL do not have my caddy back. I was hoping to spend the last 2 days doing work on her before the meet, but obviously its too late for that now. She has not been washed since last October and currently has no headliner/trim around the roof. That, of course, is if I get her back sometime tomorrow.

    On the other hand, I have managed to procure a car for the weekend if needbe. If my car ain't back, I will be driving my dad's '94 Club Wagon Chateau (basically a smoother riding E-150). Its got 190,000 miles, gets 16 mpg highway, is starting to rust to pieces and has the acceleration of an aircraft carrier. Even with all this, you can count on me attempting to drag the sumbitch. Let the good times roll.

    351 Windsor in its pride and glory. For its age, mileage and history (pulled a 7000 lb trailer for the first 120,000 miles of its life) its surprisingly quick. It tries way to hard though.

    Welp, I have been trying to find a set of sidemarkers locally to no avail.

    I found two sets. One is in Rockford and the other is at Cadillac of Naperville. If someone might be able to pick these up for me and bring them to Davenport please let me know ASAP. Call me. 515-202-4737

    Thanks guys! I would pay cash to you for the markers in davenport.
