Avery .. The project looks to be coming along really well !  Will it be Street / Strip or just Strip ? You've done a good job on it. What Block did you end up using ?

Keep us posted as progress is made.

You have a good start. My wife said," where was you when this picture was taken"? Oh that's not you. Seems your dad and I have  a lot in common, or my wife is saying all old gray fat guys look the same. I'm glad he's getting around too. Some times we don't appreciate feeling good till we don't. My dad used to come to the race car shop even though he wasn't a racer, he was hell on wheels as a machinist 45 years as a millwright. He became a race fan in his later years.

It looks like you've put a lot of work in it . I noticed the date on the pics and if the dates are right you've been working on it for 4 1/2 years! Hang in there...your s10 will be done someday.
