Hey MI guy's

Hey what has everyone been up to? I been checking on here lately and haven't seen nothing new wondering if the MI people gave up.
I was thinking about another meet like we did at Buffalo Wild Wings last year. Anybody interested?

yeah, I check here every day and it's been dead for a long time. I was starting to think everyone left the state....LOL Anyway, I'm up for a meet as long as I'm not working. When you looking to have the meet......sometime soon or are you just trying to get something planned for right after the weather breaks ? Let me know. Hopefully we can get a good turnout.

Thanks,
Jon

Now I need more gear, more stall and some drag radials !!

On the plus side I got a guy making Roger's engine harness and trans harness. With all of the outstanding help from the people that have done this before were hoping to get it up and running like it should by June
