I don’t think the Coke Bottle Kid ever got it to the track, did he?

I remember it had been driven somewhere, and while it was sitting and getting a little heat soaked, a valve seat fell out of one of heads(stage 6’s).
That was discovered when he went to start it up. I don’t remember if it was locked up or if there were crunching sounds.

I don’t remember ever hearing of it running after that.

The guy that originally owned The Haze is on another board I frequent. He was asking about the car the other day.

Sometimes projects just get to be too much to handle. I know a lot of cars that just sit in the garage waiting for "someday". Probably happens to almost every project car out there.

Someday is my middle name. Or is it a round tuit?

Sometimes thing languish due to lack of time, money or ambition. I'm guilty of all three but once it starts nothing will stop me and it will get done come hell or high water.

If you don't have more than five balls, projects, in the air at one time your not a good juggler whistling
My wife has threaten to kill me if I don't get our 1940 Ford Tudor sedan project I bought and started in 2002 done before I die confused grin It is around 75 % done and I'm working on it again this summer luck
My new back half car is waiting on a local guy to make molds for a one piece carbon fibre lift off front end and doors, I hate people who promise and then don't produce after you pay them half down to start with and don't produce anything but excuses after that rant whiney

I was lucky enough to get a passenger ride (on the road) in the Haze from Eric (Coke Bottle Kid) many years ago - it was functional at the time, maybe briefly. I recall it had already run 8-zeros, weren't many turbo cars around at that time, an awesome car! I can't really talk about long term projects - my Challenger street car has been off the road for decades now -too many issues to get in the way, family, health, priorities of life etc. However - it will be completed........

You need to get it done Gavin, before you get too old to work on it and drive it.

Two things that help me finish long term projects.I found if you work on the project every day a little bit it gets done.You don't have to actually work on it just doing research helps make progress. The other is to farm out work when needed. I like to do as much as I can myself but sometimes due to time, skill, work or family it is best to have a pro do it.

Sometimes I wish I could hand off some of my projects but then it wouldn’t really be “my project” to have pride in. Kinda be like selling everything and buying a new Challenger and sitting on a chair at a car show with an umbrella drink in my hand saying hey look at my car.

That's my advantage of being a street car,,,,so I resemble that remark without the budget to go racing at least once a month anymore!

What some chassis work would do for that car...
I used to go back and forth with him over how things work etc... Good natured banter. Last I recall, (early 2000s) he was going to college and had to put off repairing the car. Don’t recall specifics on damage, but it was engine issues. He should have long been out of college by now. Probably found a good woman and multiplied. Probably buried under bigwheels and bicycles in a garage somewhere.

Eric has been here a time or so in the last few years. He and I have DM'ed. My parents and then I used to own one of his old Chargers (white 73).
