    The last couple of days have been great. Chris and Dave are good people, I enjoyed my time with them. Redding, CA is having their big spring car event.

    I’m officially part of the F-Body crew with my new to me Super Coupe. I’ll have plenty of bonding time during the 2,900 mile trip back home.

    Thanks, I’ll be at Carlisle. Will your awesome restoration/build be done in time, brining the Aspen?

    Your Aspen was a big hit at Carlisle and popular where pics are posted.

    So to recount a bit by the time I arrived at Carlisle. Single exhaust and cat ditched for true dual. All "smog" removed and Sniper EFI installed. Fresh cooler air coming in from the hood scoop. The motor has really woke up.

    Post Carlisle the A/C finally repaired.

    I have a surprise for Monday. Heading for the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit later this month.

    Wow your SuperCoupe has A/C.
    My current one does not.
    I think Chris (a different Chris) purchased my A/C Supercoupe body.

    Nice looking car,
    Lee
