    Looking good Richard, I am sure the fit of everything will be much better than it ever was from the factory when you are done!!

    This month’s plans

    As many of you know, 20-22 May is the Smoky Mountain Classic Chevy show in Pigeon Forge, TN. We’ll be going, along with BamaNomad, Gary. Hope to see/meet some of you at the show.

    I have some work to do on the 56 to get ready, so progress on the Corvette will slow down some this month. I appreciate your comments/suggestions on the Corvette’s build, thank you.

    For those who haven’t seen the 56 build posting, I’ve added a few pictures here. The drivetrain is a 525hp LS3, Tremec Magnum close ratio 6-speed, 3:70 9” rear w/31 spline axles. Chassis is Art Morrison, brakes Wilwood. Interior was done by Paul Atkins Interiors here in Alabama.

    For planning purposes, I'm pretty sure that the Smokey Mountain Classics Show is always the weekend in May that contains the 3rd Saturday of the month, and generally last from Thursday (arrival day), Friday and Saturday show days, and Sunday (awards morning)...

    I really wish they would move that national show around the country.

    Mark? Where are you located? Kansas? Oklahoma? you're about in the middle of the country and could make them anywhere...?

    PS. The Trifive Nationals have gotten so large, and it's so hot, (and I've gotten so old).. ..
    I'm liking the pigeon Forge show better (only ~300 cars, but always has parts, in a great hotel with everything in the parking lot, and in a beautiful part of the country (Smokey Mountains).
