Relaxing at my father-in-law's up in Wisconsin. Not doing much but hanging out. He's got one more show then putting the roadster away for the winter. Been showing him some of the work you guys do. Pretty impressed with it. Wants to know when Amy's roadster will be finished.

Her ears must have been burning. She just came in from work and ask if we could get the 27 done by spring. She hasn't said anything about the T in a while and she hasn't seen this post. That's funny. we will be back on it soon. It's still at the old house. I need to get it here before some crackhead has it rolling down the alley.

Wish I could get everyone to go get it checked out, the doc said those aneurisms don't have any symptoms most of the time. When they finally split, you drop right on the spot no chance for help. They said even with me in the hospital, if it went that I only had about a 50 50 chance.....affraid  Thanks for the prayers though, will take all those I can get.cheers

I got so busy at work, I was able to do a quick peek here and then back out. Man, it sure was a Monday, and I wasn't the dog....I felt like the tree, car tire, and fire hydrant Rolling Eyes 

Yep, those aneurisms are bad news. I was an EMT way back and while doing my training at an ER, they had a guy come in with one in his stomach, you could see his heart beat through the lump in his stomach. I heard after they rushed him into the ER, as soon as they cut through his stomach to repair it, that relieved the pressure and it burst, they could save him.
My dad's 2 were both down between the upper lobes of his heart on his aorta. Doctor said only thing keeping them from bursting was the lobes keep pressure on them, well, and the good Lord, they were paper thin. I go every couple yrs and get blood work done, also need a non-stress test done also since heart disease runs in family.

Took off work today and going to hit both remaining speed shops and see about their recommendation on a cam for the 55,since the 55 is a long distance driver gas mileage is getting to be more of a concern now so I doubt I will be putting a Y block back in right now. The nimrod I had build it stuck in a cam that starts making power above 2000 rpms and is not the rv grind I ordered,I am going to change the cam and intake and see how it does before I swap in a AOD and use the 3.55 gears from the 37. The cam change is going to be my winter project since I will not be going to Daytona this year and hope to squeeze a couple more miles to the gallon out of it before next year.
