It has been an extremely good year. I turned 70 and my health has not been better in the past 8 years, since I retired. I am looking forward to a good 2009, when I should get my car back on the track.

  • It has been an extremely good year. I turned 70 and my health has not been better in the past 8 years, since I retired. I am looking forward to a good 2009, when I should get my car back on the track.

Two years ago I stated my License was expiring in April of 2006 and I probably would not renew. Again I am coming up on renewal. I have been considering giving up active driving and just being an owner/tuner. I would like to find someone that can out drive me, that I can trust, or someone that I can train, then I will consider getting out of the drivers seat.

I would like to make some 8 second runs before I retire from driving. I know my engine has the horsepower. All I need is a good car with a safe, suspension that goes straight to get into the eights. Some of you are running sevens, sixes and even 5’s, but my goal is 8.99.

After attending the PRI Trade Show, I know there is so much more that I can do and try out, even with a new driver. I am looking forward to going back to Orlando to the PRI Show, Dec. 10-12, 2009.

I have been very pleased with my web site work for my church, Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church (http://shilohportallen.org ). The people in the church are very happy with the site. This started out as a simple set of photos and just to establish a place for us on the web. It has grown to so much more. The members have upgraded to either DSL or Cable so they can look at video and listen to the music and they just love the many photos that I take each Sunday.

All the work at my home is complete. We have no more construction workers and the painting is complete. I finished the sliding shelves in the pantry and the workshop is complete. Now all I have to do is get back to working on the car. I need some welding and painting, which is slightly out of my control, so to speak, but there is a lot of work that I can do myself. I would love to be ready for Super Chevy at State Capitol Raceway on Feb. 6-8, 2009. That is the goal for now (I could run my first 8 at Super Chevy!)
