Jamie and I visited Tweed Vorhees before NOCC.

This was a bucket list item for me:-) He has found and is restoring the pre production 1968 F85 RamRod Ron Garey raced!!

He has Oldsmobile blood:-)

You bet:-) Tweed is like a talking text book:-)

And Vickie made us home made peach pie, with ice cream and whipped cream from a hundred year old family recipe:-) We did not want to leave!!!

A little more metal work.

This piece has more bends than straights, I was terrified to cut it out but WTH:-)

The piece I cut and bent so far I think will be a template to make one slightly larger and slightly more accurate. Also the support is removed below so I can access both sides to dress it up before welding the support back on the bottom:-)

Sam Grewal dropped off my original master cylinder and water pump at John Stuarts for a stainless sleeve and rebuild on the MS, and a rebuild of the WP, they are ready but I have to get to Stoney Creek to pick up some day soon....

My engine is completed and I have made arrangements with F.J. Smith to run it in on his Super Flo Dyno and tune it. This is a special item to me as FJ is a bit of an Ontario Oldsmobile Drag Race Legend. The engine builder will be part of the dyno day which makes me feel a better.

I have to restore some more small parts for the outside of the engine such as pulleys, alt brackets, etc to be ready for the dyno.
A good portion are ready: Carb, Ignition, spark plugs, WIX oil filters, Brad Penn break in oil, Brad Penn oil,
I have had a few items delivered to my good friend oleredalert date code spark plug wires, wire retainers, fan belt, carb return spring, etc.

I will drive this car, no ifs ands or buts!! (One butt in the drivers seat)

We did a dyno test at FJ about 6 weeks ago, phone call unscheduled showed up and he accommodated. So professional, all business. He was impressed by the numbers and how prepared we were. Good luck with your pull

FJ will set you straight. I didn't know he did street tunes. He was/is one of the best in the business.
