It's about time
I've only been a member here since November. Here's my story.
After FFR GTM blasted by me on I-95 last year, I started my search. I was set on the GTM until I stumbled upon this forum and followed the RCR SLC builds. Suddenly the GTM was a thing of the past. I began communicating witha couple of SLC guys Jack, Cam and Fran. Then took a trip up to RCR in early March. Fran gave me free reign of the shop and I was free to talk to whom I wanted and ask whatever I wanted. After the better part of a day, I headed home with a thinner wallet. I didn't waste anytime prepping for this build. I purchased a LS 376/480, Ricardo, clutch, starter...Vicki shipped the adapter plate so I could mate both and I completed the mods to the intake, water pump etc. Fran called and offered me the yellow body with new rear tail, and although tempting I held out for white. I am hoping the center lock hubs and wheels will be ready for delivery. I like the new rear tail although some body mods are anticipated.
I have built several cars and custom motorcycles over the years including a Contemporary Cobra with an original 427 side oiler and top loader four spd. back in the early 80's. I participated in SCCA (EP, GT1 and SPO) then IMSA (all four classes but mostly GTU) and HSR. All Porsches. I sold all cars in 2002. My fabrication skills need refreshing and this SLC is the perfect project.
I feel like I know almost everyone on this forum especially the SLC guys and I'm anxious to start communicating and sharing knowledge, ideas and everyone's expertise. This was supposed to be a short intro but at least you all know a bit about me.
