Hey chuck spent last weekend with brian darcy at englishtown and i must say that Neil and parks car is fantastic the workmanship is over the top and the thought for component placement and design is outstanding the light weight and ease of maint makes it my choice if i want to take it to the next level good luck with your car. Brian has his rig figured out and there is meat on the bone good things to come. Maybe see you at the valley.

Thanks guys. The past few nights have been spent working on a bunch of small stuff. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Just make sure that light at the end of the tunnel is not a freight train     :)

Yeah, I am from the south--any further south and I would have been a bloody penguin.

WOW, what a Great Looking Parks car !

But there most be something wrong with you, your shop is WAY TO CLEAN !!

Where, when are you planning on racing ?   I'd love to have you come out west and race with us in the NHRA Heritage Jr Fuel series.
Maybe you and Darcy  could team up and put both cars in one trailer, what do you think ?

Glenn...it was really my pleasure! I'll be back out to Epping tomorrow to cheer you and Bill on.

Jon...I'm planning on running the D1 Comp circuit in 2015 but still need to get re-licensed at this time. I definitely want to come out west at some point. It would be cool (and a great show!) to get all these J/F cars in the same place at the same time. I'll talk to Brian at Epping tomorrow and you can work on him at Bakersfield next month.
