We just finished the Labor Day Weekend and had great time. Our goal this summer has been to see our Project Cougar (Click Here for Project Cars) on the street before the cruise season ended and we made it! On Friday night of Labor Day Weekend we drove out to the Murfreesboro Hot Rod Club cruise and rumbled into our favorite spot.
The car is far from being done but is just right for a car under construction and ready to shake the ground. It was our maiden shake down cruise and, as always, there is a list of mostly small things to get done. What’s more exciting is that now we can move on to some other aesthetic improvements like in the interior and body. Right now the car is a good “10 footer” but we want more without limiting our ability to drive her. This car, if we can afford to feed it all the gas it likes to drink, will be driven a lot.
The “green” people are not going to like this 428 cubic inch, nearly 500 HP monster sucking down high octane gas while we drive in the air conditioned comfort and sit in its plush leather seats. This is no daily driver or grocery getter. However, it will see more than its share of trips to the Dairy Queen and pastoral country roads. I can just see the dairy farmers shaking their fists and yelling that their cows won’t give milk for a week after all that noise and commotion as Katrina and I pass by in our angry Cat!
