  1. Some kids stole the hood off my '70 Chevelle SS parked next to my garage in 1988. Did some detective work and found it behind a barn about a week later. Only think stolen in over 50 years here, just north of Flint.
  2. Just finished up a couple of crankshaft rebuilds on 1976 Mercury SNO-TWISTER Kohler 440 engines.
  3. Find myself doing that more and more and he's right.
  4. This old Ford was given to my son we're going to drag it to the shop and see what it's all about. Might just pull the motor detail it and use it for display in my shop.
  5. She'll still vote for Biden in the 2024 election...
  6. There's a Chick-fil-A being built in Flint at the busiest intersection in town, right next to I-75. Can't imagine what they had to pay for the location.Tore down an abandoned Sonic that couldn't make it.
  7. Rebuilt this 800 E-tec crank today. All new rods, bearings and a new mag end. Going to weld the pins but ran out of gas for the heliarc.
  8. Do you have a fire extinguisher in your house?
  9. Getting ready to rebuild this Yamaha YZ450F crankshaft. Part of a complete overhaul for a customer.
  10. Actually three or four teams raced the Mystery Engine in '63 with no factory support. Smokey Yunick, Rex White, Junior Johnson, Et al. Junior managed to win seven races. I'm building a period correct street driven replica of the Junior Johnson #3 car.
  11. Flint Engine South was built on the site of the original V-8 Engine Plant that opened in 1954. I guess we can call it the V-8 plant again after 20 years. I retired from the Metal Fabricating Plant right next door. The Flint Truck Assembly Plant is contiguous to both plants, which seems to me to be the ideal layout for GM to build trucks.
  12. Who is your crank guy? - I may know him.
