for the record - 31 years with the S&W group. 10 at the speed shop (S&W Performance) before moving S&W Race Cars for 21 more - retired at the end of 2010.
Welcome to the group, Don :)

Are you still actively racing ?

Good thing someone is helping keep Bruce in line. We try, but you've seen his paint scheme, right ? That happened before we caught onto what he was doing. :mrgreen: Sorry Bruce, we weren't gonna bring it up, but...

Oh, and btw, Hitch has a daddy complex. He's always looking for a new father figure I think. For awhile, he was fixated on Jimmy Durante. Be sure to ask him about that.

As to the daddy complex thing - we think it's something that most Vette owners go through at one time or another. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Dont listen to these guys, they all just know that some day they will get a real good look at the vettes back side getting smaller and smaller. Kinda like the opposite of my ol lady's back side.

Hitch, it's not a river in Egypt: denial is a very real issue. The earlier you admit the problem the sooner you can deal with it.

I was gonna post your new hood scoop and Durante pictures to illustrate my point, but I'm afraid the impact would be too traumatic.

Sorry Bruce, I didn't mean to hijack your thread with this intervention thing.

Just wait Harry till you see what's being done to the paint job......

And yes, Don still goes to the track every weekend. His son, Kevin drives their small block RED and
I think Don has a Camaro, but before I scream for joy that he has a Camaro, i'll let him speak first on that one.

Here's a question, everywhere I look, other than a stock crankshaft pulley, most are all reduction type pulleys.

The one I have now is 50%, would a 30% like DOTracer mentioned be better?
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:

Nope, sorry Bruce I don't own a Camaro but I have put a lot of time behind the wheel of good fried, Rich Epprecht's DOT & Pro ET Camaro. Most of my time is spent with Kevin and our 7.70 - 170 small block dragster. Even got a win already this year.
