Engine all cleaned up................

Connected via internet with the engine builder yesterday and he tuned her up a bit from Ca. ( That was way cool! )....

.

Still a little wiring in the back ground that needs to be tied up but that can't really be seen unless you are on your hands and knees looking up in there :wink:

This is a particularly difficult area to get right but I think I've finally got it...............

With only a few days until we head off to the classic it's time to shine her up!..........

Still loads to do but I'll get it :wink:

What a great way to start a trip!! Fri. night was a blast hanging out in the garages of Atlanta Speedway drinkin' some brews amidst an all makes car show ( The V-Dubs kinda invaded a little though   :shock:  :lol:  :wink:  ) with drag racing just a few steps away!
Then our show toaday where the crowd couldn't get enough of our bus and decided that we had best interior.....

not only that but also took home this way cool hand-made aluminum "trophy" Which is the coolest award I've ever seen at a car show................

This will give you a better idea of the size...............

No cheapo plastic trophies here, this thing rocks!
AND, if that wasn't enough, we got to take a few hot laps around the speedway in our VW's. Now if you have never been around a super speedway in your bus you can take it from me................ TOO FORKING COOL MAN!!!!!!!!!!! Those high banks are A LOT different than it looks.
This is after when we all stopped on the track for some Pic's...........

.


Please forgive the 4X4 status as I was so amped I forgot to dump it for Pic's :rolleyes:

Doesn't get any better than this, there was a mob around the bus all day. Super VW magazine from France wants to shoot it tomorrow and HGTV videoed it extensively and made a mini movie of me showing off naughty bus bits  8)
Got to meet Cage66, ragtop, iveedubin,and Hudman too! Good bunch of dudes, was cool to put faces and voices on some peeps.
Got a hands ( Laptop ) on tune-up from the engine builder at one of the open houses too........

I'll keep you posted how it goes at the Classic tomorrow, wish me luck!
I'm under a shade tree at the blackstar campgrounds right now and think I might just have a couple  :drinkers:  :drinkers:  :drinkers:  :drinkers:  :wink:
