Hello Group,

I would like to take a minute and introduce myself to the board. My name is Joe Duncan and I live in Tampa FL with my wife and family. We are car lovers at heart and enjoy the sport of auto racing of all kinds.

A little about our cars and what we do, my wife has a 62 Nova that we bought from the second owners out of CA that she found on craigslist. I have a 73 nova that I have owned from around 1983 and my son owns a 78 Malibu that he will begin racing this coming year with any hopes.

We are a family that loves to race together and work on the cars as a family. We have a few very close friends that help out and travel with us when we go on the road to race. We work on what we race and when I say work the only thing we do not do at this time is roll cages, we will do roll bars but not the full cage yet. We build out own motors, trans, rear ends, brake systems, fuel systems, carb tuning and so on.

Our love is drag racing and at as many tracks as we can get to within our vacation limits. We have been on Pinks and had a write up about our group in DragMagazine. A little is not a bad thing I guess.

I have had the chance to work with jmark audio from the board on some carb tuning as even was able to test one of the beast he builds. Lucky I live so close to a man with that kind of skill.

Thanks and hope to speak with many of you soon.

Hey Joe, glad you finally made it and yes, there's always room for one more here!!

You'll find a bunch of other DIY'ers here too. THAT is what this board is all about, ie, Racers helping other Racers learn to do as much of their own stuff as they feel comfortable doing. I can't remember the number of phone calls I've made over the years doing just that when needed. And there's a bunch of others here that do the same.

Ennywho, glad you decided to join us and I hope you enjoy the time you spend on here.
