SVO asked me to start this thread for him and post the first picture of his adventure to the Silver State Classic Challenge in Nevada.

http://www.silverstateclassic.com/

The Silver State Classic Challenge is an authorized Open Road Racing event that is run on a 90 mi (140 km) stretch of State Route 318, which is closed for the occasion.

SVO's boss Rick will be running one of his high performance Mustangs in this event.

Long trip ahead of me with lots of work:

Carbondale, Co. for a day, then to Ely, Nevada, set-up for the Silver State Classic, possibly run off to Las Vegas to go visit SAI (Shelby Automobiles Inc.) then back to Ely for the events and race, then back to Carbondale, to work on the rental house, then home.

I have cellular internet, but may or may not be on line, I will take a web cam, but still no guarantees, going to be a very busy schedule well see how things play out.



Jeff - :p:
 






The car...

No sir, just me and a friend whose Shelby's I have been building, fixing, modifying.


This is the car that's getting beat up on this next week and a half, just installed a KB 2.8 comp package:
