I was introduced to this site by Randy W and thanks. It looks like an interesting place to be and since I'm self employed I need all the distractions I can get..

Cheers

I'm more into nature and wildlife, this is one of my favorite shots of a cougar taking a nap in a tree

As for projects I have an 86 T-Top Pontiac GP that I play with. It's got a 355 with vortec heads and a T5 WC sitting behind it. I'm putting in a 76 Chevelle 8.2 rear with an Eaton posi 3.08 this week. I had the body off last year and replaced the frame and boxed the new one. I work on race cars and hold a Nascar crew licence so I have access to some info and parts that work pretty good on my GP. Here's a pic of the race car after it met the inside wall with some. We had the car out the next Friday nite with a new front clip and it didn't even loose a 1/10

Tell me more about the NASCAR Crew License, what's involved in getting one ? Do you have to be licensed to work in the pits ?

You have to be on a crew for a car at a Nascar sanctioned track and you need the licence to get into the pits. It's around $90 and it includes insurance coverage. There is no questions of skills or education.

I was just curious. So they just want your money ! :)

It always feels good when you can bounce right back, and not skip a beat.

but I have to add being a Nascar member our sponsors are permitted to use the Nascar emblem in their advertising so it does help to bring in some money...
