Post GS nationals in BG KY

How many guys are planning on going to the GS Nationals?

It would be cool if we had a GN Hybrid section!

Dennis, have you weighed you car with the new "k" member in it yet? If so what did it weigh? I have the suspension all but done now. The only thing I still have left to get is the "Flaming River" manual rack.

Anthony Jones tubular K-member
AJ tubular control arms
Coil-overs
Lakewood 90/10's front
Wolfe Racekraft Double adjustable titainium upper and lowers in the rear.
Wolfe Racekraft antiroll bar
Granatelli rear coilovers
Lakewood 50/50's
Battle boxes uppper and lower.

Got my engine for the Buford back with the girdle and studs installed.
Crank is back
Rods are at the Machine shop.
That is all on the engine for now. Hehe.

I trying to get my GN back together and running, then it is back to the BUFORD. These good folks have helped me keep the faith!!! Cheers!!!

Not yet, I just got the block back for my GN. That is the one that my girl drove over the crank in. There wasn't much salvagable from that motor. Need a two piece crank? LOL!!!

I'm taking my GN to Nats but will hopefully have the Metro done by the Midwest Challenge. If it is done, we are also going to the West Coast Nationals in Vegas (October).

Hopefully, I'll have it ready to line up against Dennis' Tang so I can show him how well his wiring harness works!

Is a tube chassis car still a hybrid? Lets hope so!

I'll be there, along with ScottieGNZ.

TurboBuicks.com will have an enormous setup in vendors row, I think it would be a good idea to get a picture of all the GN powered hybrids in front of the tent!

Hello guys.. Been taking care of some personal stuff for awhile and here's the scoop. I'm going to relocate to Louisville KY starting monday. My family will move down when this property up here is sold. I'll only be about a hour from BG so I'll be there. I also have been putting together my wife's Midnight Blue T-Type so that should be there. Hope to see and meet everyone then.
This will be my first time there!
Try and stop back soon..
Scott~~
