and your projects get put on back burner. Not sure what to think of it. Buddy of mine has been trying to race his big block 57 Chevy for some time now, and other "mechanics" have been dicking him over. I got it straightened out for him and we've been trying to get to a local track for a couple weeks now only to get rained out. Last weekend finally got a good Friday night, and the cheap Chinese distributor that the other "mechanic" put in took a shit 100' off the line. Swapped the junk out for msd unit and he drove the car home on sunday. The guy has cancer, and been trying to help him out and have some fun. While I was working on his 57 sunday, an elderly neighbor stops by and wanted my opinion on his 86 Mercedes 560sl that a shop had been dicking him around with. He did not want to sink a lot of money into the car, but was not sure the shop was being honest with him. Went and trailered the car home for him last Wednesday, and now will be checking to see if the cam chain guides are shot and valves bent for him. Meanwhile, my 91 notch mustang project is still sitting waiting for the motor to be put back in, and my 64 Falcon pro street project is sitting patiently in the garage.......
