Glad you came out OK with Ike. I live in Houma and we took the eye of Gustav. Mandatory evac, so I went visit my boy at College Station (Aggie dad) for 8 days. We watched with great interest as Ike scooted by us to the south.

Car has not raced in over 2 months. Might be another 2 months before we race again. Need new roof and bunch of other stuff, but car was OK in the garage.

Seeing a lot more Texas plates aournd here, right now

Yeah, I know what you mean Steve! I watched Gustav slide by us! Sorry to hear about the damage! Glad you and the family are good!

Ike has certainly slowed things around here on the GT. I thought we would have the engine back together by now......we haven't even got the heads done yet (guys shop still doesn't have power). Haven't talked to Vic the chassis guy yet, I figured since we're not ready no sense to rush him.

I bought the GT500 to occupy my time while the GT was down. However, with curfews, no stop lights, gas lines, and a couple million stressed out drivers on the road I hate to take it out of the garage!

Good to know the quality of the roads down there, I'm road-tripping down there with my car and my friends RX-8 later on for Metallica's show, hope they fix stuff up before hand.

Either way congrats on the new muscle behind your car and on not getting screwed over by the storm

When is that concert? I think they cancelled 3 Doors Down due to the storm. However, Buzzfest is still on and I think the Pavillian came out untouched.

I'm sure they'll have most things fixed by then.

So it's sitting in the garage.....and it's dirty!!!

concert is Nov. 20th
though we've had a couple people back out because they'll have important classes the day we'd have to leave to get there : / looks like we're changing up to AC/DC in December.
Tickets for that are still on hold til October, so they can square away whether or not they can put the show on

also I feel you on not being able to wash the car. With that small split around the rear convertible window water gets in under washing, so it's stuck until the dealership isn't so "backed up"
