Place: Stagecoach Park
1205 N. Kansas City Road
Olathe KS

Day: Sunday, May 6th

Time: 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

All are welcome even from other states. :D

To early to give a concrete answer but if I can be there I will. Maybe even talk Benny of Melon to go as well. Just find a date and I will try to make it. My car's transmission is sitting on a bench next to the car but should get it back in someday:rolleyes: Whiles it out out I might get the whole thing chromed so I can compete with Duane for the title of most chrome:D

The TQ converter is out being rebuilt and I installed the new digital gear indicator sensor on the tranny while it is out. So much easier than laying on ones back under a car trying to build custom brackets

Sorry I had to pop in and out so fast, but with a 5 yoa hangin with me, it requires some attention.

Also, for those who have seen the easy rods kits, there was one there today. I must say, in person, they do not look like they are mismatched as much as they do in pictures.

Thanks to Jason as well for getting the shelter. My boy had a good time.
