Drove out to Sycamore to check out the Threshing show. Not many pictures, but there was some cool stuff there and it was a nice Sunday drive.

Had some minor setbacks on the way up, but they happened early so everyone made it to the show. Good weather and good times by all.

All the pictures from show are here


Very good time and well worth the drive. We were 11,777 registered on Sat morning so there was close to 12,000 cars here. Neat place for a show, it’s a city within itself with a police department, hospital, restaurants, etc. We’ll make this an annual trip. Too many people and cars to really take pictures, but I have a few.

The way home we took the Great River Road from MN to IL. Four states and 500 miles in one day.

Pictures Here

New Crate 383 is in, old 350 is out.

New Limited Slip differential with 3:55 Gears installed

700R4 installed also…but it’s experiencing very late shifts, so I dropped the valve body and the builder is sending out a replacement. Bought a fresh, rebuilt transmission and I still have to take it apart.Nice..

It should be leaving some burnouts on Commercial very soon.


Close to 450 Photos so you’ll need some time to browse through them. There is also a separate folder for some HDR images that I shot, but I admit that I didn’t spend much time processing them.

This is still the best place for a car show. It was bigger than last year and will get even larger.

New heart for the 54 Chevy
