    Cruise at Chuck's 1469 Hwy 114 at Hwy 26 exit in Grapevine. Registration 5-9 - Awards 8:30. Entry fee: $10. For more information, call 817-329-9020 or visit www.svttexas.com

    This is sponsored by the SVT club, but will have mostly classic muscle cars. I always have a great time at these and haven't been to one in awhile. Get the lawn chair out, have a beer, walk around, and talk cars.

    Greg Scott will probably come over if he doesn't find some bridesmaid at a pre-wedding party in Dallas.

    There are 17 classes and several of those would be eligible for Ferraris.

    I thought the point of 2 Ferraris is to always have something running. Maybe you need a third? :D

    LOL, sometimes 3 wouldn't be bad. The C is back, so maybe it's the 328's turn. Although it ran great for 800 miles this past weekend. That new regulator has made a really big improvement. I never knew the entire time my car had the wrong regulator in it.

    Also, for all the early 328's out there Norwoods has several extra oil springs that are a cheap fix. It was a tech bulletin by Ferrari that I found. Lowers your oil pressure by 20-30 lbs., which is much better for your car.

    I'll come out. Still no Pantera, though. Turned out one of my heads tested as cracked at the machine shop. So now I'm in search of heads they only made for 2 years! Not the easiest. At least I'll have more power when it's back together!

    Matt, it's just Greg, Ron, and I. If it rains or even chance of it, we're just going to do the bar thing. You have my PCS # still?

    Matt,
    Any way to get that head welded? I've heard of race engine heads having issues that have been able to be rewelded and continue life. It would probably need to be done at an experienced race shop, obviously.

    Nope, not this one. Pinning was asked about but they said they just didn't feel that this one was repairable, enough to be truly fixed right. I'm watching Ebay pretty hard right now.

    With all the rain yesterday I never thought it would clear, but it stopped raining and by 5 all the roads were dry and forecast looked good. Jennie and I drove over and then gave Matt, Ron, and Greg the heads up everything was cool. I've never been to this cruise before, but will probably go back as it's close, very professionally run (computerized entry cards & voting), and cool people. It's sponsored by the SVT club, so many late model cars. The rain earlier maybe scared some people away, but still a good turnout of cars. For future reference, if we can get at least 4 Ferraris, they will create a special class for us. The Mercury Marauder and VW clubs had their own classes.

    Ron and Matt were in street cars, but I got beat by an awesome '83 Olds Hurst in 80's of course (I'm use to it by now from Grand Nationals and 442's and now a Hurst at muscle car shows :)) and Greg got 2nd in the Open class. Nice awards and I won a California duster in the drawing.

    We took off from there to Hooters for food, then to Tap In on main street in Grapevine, and then back to the Southlake mansion for a slumber party. :)

    Greg's line last night was "Chicks are allowed to sit in it." :) He got several takers.
