I am on countdown to the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show in Orlando, Dec. 11-13, 2008. I know I will be like a kid in a candy store. My credentials arrived earlier this week along with a lot of information about what is going on in Orlando during the convention. Expect a good story when I return, and if they issue me a camera pass, lots of good photos.

I will be about 60 miles from my hometown of Daytona Beach, FL and I will take a short day trip over there to see some friends and visit my parents grave site.

News Flash! Beware – Van Johnson is installing his new BBC 567 cid engine tonight. Van selected all the parts, had his machine shop work done at Southland in Houma, LA and he assembled it himself. Dyno testing was completed Monday. All I am going to say is, don’t mess with Van!
