I just picked up my first Gen3 Hemi core. It will be way behind the current curve but there are some good used parts for them floating around already priced right.

What are your plans?

Got a 418 i am gonna slap together with a roller,between 12.5 and 13 compression, and a set of the new trick flow small block heads
Will have a 904 behind it, and at 3300 pounds hoping it will run 10.20’s or so, wont need a license..... getting to old to want one or jump through those hoops anyhow.
In the meantime, want to get my stock stroke low compression 360 in the 10’s first......
And in between all that, get my hip replaced, its starting to really bug my mobility doing much of anything

I'm going to finish my 31 Plymouth and have it all tested and dialed in for Drag Week. The hemi is going on the Dyno mid January. Also I'm going to fix the issues with my 67 GTX that forced my to drop out of Drag Week 2017, so I have a good back up car, just in case.

Trying to get back into it. I am looking at trying a new carb on the GTX and probably offing the 1000 race demon.

Been considering farming out all or part of the bodywork/paint on that car and think I may have met someone who could turn out to be a good resource. Need to invest some time with this person and get an idea what will need to happen. (I already know I'm not going to like the price).

I will be shopping around to find somewhere good to rework/prep and port the small pile of heads I collected a few years back. Hasn't been much interest from the famous names here so I might have to actually talk to people in real life, which I actually welcome...just need to find the time....there is a crazy amount of knowledge locally that I haven't really attempted to tap into and that's probably a mistake.

Need to take the time to scrutinize the LA small block-related items in the collection closely and need to work towards selling off the stuff I'm not going to use anytime soon.

Making a billet intake to go on my billet HEMI.
Finally got my CNC up and running in my shop. Hope to be making chips next month. Then plan on making an oil pan and several other parts.
Also have plans for an expansion at my storage business. Should be a busy year.

Built myself a 11.3:1 cr 360 engine recently to be put in my '73 daily Dart.
Maybe somewhere down the line I hope to also be able to finally build/finish an Early 392, a 5.7L Hemi and a 6.1L Hemi.

I've got half the paint striped off the dart. Making way for a new paint job
Putting a glass rear bumper to match the front.
Adding an engine plate and denso alternator
Possibly a fiberglass dash if I'm really feeling froggy.
Looking forward to working in my new garage. This will be my first big project.
Any folks around Kentucky are more than welcome to stop by and lend a hand....

New mill for my old girl. The 500 seemed to be possessed by the spirit of Chuckie. Overhaul my Indy Max block. Figure out if going 572 or 605. Not sure which stroke to use yet.
