  1. It does look awesome. It appears to be more of a demo, as it seems he helps lift her to position
  2. Lucky here, no power outage - I assume we either share the grid with something important OR perhaps because the grid we're on is low density (rural area) Internet has been down for days now, which makes it harder to work. Hotspot still working ok, though not the best signal where I'm at. Well system froze up so we're still without water.
  3. Get back into motorcycle track days, if goes well maybe get that novice CMRA plate for the bucket list Get better on the dirtbike, maybe by end of year get into the slow old man c-class races, hare scrambles etc Get my car put back together before 2022!
  4. Wow, love it! Drooling. GLWS. Anybody want a disassembled Camaro? haha j/k
  5. Good news. Picked up the car and all the parts (sans engine) today. The car looks like it did the day I dropped it off 3/15/2019. I'm satisfied with this outcome, and the shop gave me a small refund as well. I don't feel the need to pursue any legal action at this point - which is a relief.
  6. Well... I got a call on Friday the 15th from the person / shop in question. Basically saying I can come pick up my stuff next Friday. So I'll be rolling out there with some help and probably a wrecker service to grab the rolling chassis of my car, and some boxes of parts. The engine itself is mostly complete and is at the engine builder, so I'll pick that up separately. I guess this is the best possible outcome at this point - ironic that I was just in the process of having a lawyer send a DTPA letter and go from there. If all goes well this coming Friday, that won't be necessary. In talks with Biddle Motorsports to pick up the pieces and try to put humpty dumpty back together again. Biddle knew of this other person, and this will not be the first project they've taken over from that shop.
  7. Did this....they informed me they can't do anything about it - I have to take it up as a civil matter. I guess this is how conmen are able to operate so long without going to jail...
  8. Sob story update - the conman thief POS remains elusive and does not return phone calls / voicemails, emails or text. Rumor has it he was / has been robbing Peter to pay Paul as they say, and is underwater with lawsuits. I will be engaging in a lawsuit myself as that is my only legal recourse. I'm also sure that he's probably going to be impossible to pin down and get any money out of, probably has already shutdown his LLC or whatever slippery BS someone like that does to get away with his nonsense. Happened to be in the neighborhood (no really, I was at Spoaks MX and Creedmoor is on the way) and as expected the "shop" is behind a closed and locked up gate. No sign of my car outside.
  9. Maybe Muffin Muffler. They can get it done, may not be pretty though...
  10. Great story, thanks for sharing! If I ever get my shit together, I'll be that newly licensed guy getting in everybody's way 😛
  11. Cool to see more Camaros out there. My '13 will be ready sometime next year I hope. Not an ideal track car but...surprisingly decent at it for such a hefty package.

    Gorgeous car - I still love the 996 Turbo. I kind of missed the best time to buy one (both for my finances and when the value bottomed). Hey in your ad, the CarGurus details has it as an automatic, though your description indicates it is a manual, and the interior pic shows that as well, but...in case people are using filtered searches, they might miss your ad.
  13. Update to the drama llama Camaro Shop in question seems to have closed up, and likely facing lawsuits from others. As usual no response to any of my inquiries. Rumor has it he was robbing Peter to pay Paul... My car likely sits outside, with no engine and probably no differential installed (and some valuable parts somewhere in the shop - upgraded radiator with hoses, MCS 2wnr coilovers with Vorschlag camber plates were in the trunk, but who knows now) The engine - which is worth more than the car at this point, is in the care of Modern Airflow Designs - Trey is a standup guy and is going to let me pickup the engine when it's ready (maybe this week), and is going to deal with the other guy for whatever he is owed. Camshaft pending install once it's delivered from TSP. I need some advice. -Help picking up the car, and the engine (I hope to find a shop willing to do the install that can maybe help me with pickup also) -How would you go about the pickup of what amounts to a rolling chassis from a shop that you can't contact? That has a gate that is likely locked? Do you know the specific Texas laws about this? I expect this might be a contentious situation with the car, I owe nothing to the shop, in fact he will owe me some of the pre-paid money for not completing the job (not going to hold my breath on that one) Also - shop recommendations? Don't care where in Texas, as long as they aren't shysters.
  14. Cool gadget, will keep it on my radar for my theoretical eventual return to track time.
