I have been collecting pieces for my Mustang street/strip car project. It's going to be a little different, originally I was going to put a small block Chevy in it. But the plans have changed, now it's getting a Ford racing 5.4, GT 500 engine with a Turbo 400 trans. The rear end is a Currie built 8.8 with a spool and 35 spline spool. I can't wait to get this little guy going.

My first experience with sprint cars was when I turned sixteen. One of the first places I went when I got my drivers license was Ascot Park in beautiful Gardena. I have always really enjoyed dirt track racing whether it's stock cars or sprint cars. I was hanging out with my old amigo Skinny Jeff Friday night when he suggested we go to Perris Auto speedway for some sprint car action. I haven't been to Perris in probably six years, so it sounded like an awesome idea! Man was I glad I went, the main was some of the best racing I have ever seen! One of these days if I ever get some money and big balls I want to drive one of those bad boys!

Our friend Jeff Neppl stopped by the shop today for some maintenance on the new caddy motor. Keith Dean installed the motor, then we did everything to get the car running. We had to build headers, mount the battery, relocate the radiator, plumb the carbs, make the linkage basically everything involved in making a motor swap. We finished Jeff's car a little bit before last years GNRS, where the car was in the history of customs building. It was awesome to see the car at the shop today, it was like an old friend returning!

So today I stopped by my friends shop Romance With Rust, and got to peak at the almost completed Lightning Bug. This car was ran by the Schley Brothers, then sold to a guy in Puerto Rico. The Schleys bought it back and brought it to Romance With Rust, where Chris and Willi have done an awesome restoration job.
So this is pretty exciting, we have a new shirt design by Harpoon. (thanks Poon) if you are interested you can purchase them from the website www.circlecityhotrods.com. We have them in men's and women's sizes.
