    First up is that since July, I am a full-time resident of Prescott. My wife moved up the end of 2014 due to the company she worked for 10+ years moved here. I stayed behind to sell my business of 39 years an try and sell our house. The business was sold to an employee of 18 years and the house now has tenants. I'm now working part-time and drawing social security. I have had time to begin exploring the high country and love it. I was allowed to use our garage space for the buggy until it started getting cold. I just paid 1st months rent on a storage space for the winter but not sure how that's going to work. I was invited to ride today and was going to meet at 8:30 am off I-17 at Table Mesa Rd but decided not to go because it was going to be in the mid 30's when I leave. I want to do some winter exploring in the lower country during the winter but have no way to trailer the buggy. My daily driver is my 1993 Toyota pickup with 405K miles (runs great except for AC & the motor lacks compression). I thought I might look for storage in Black Canyon City
    Secondly, I have done quite a bit to my buggy since most of you have seen it. Aluminum body, rear trunk, Howe power steering (that's got a long story & will save for later), inner harness rewired with DIS on electronics box over transaxle and re-routed fuel intake system to ends of fuel rails.
    Here are a couple pictures:

    I have a couple items to finish but will probably have to wait til at least springtime.
    It would be great to get together sometime and maybe meet some of the new guys I see posting. It's kinda funny that Tim Warlick comes to the forum from Sahuarita after I move.
    By the way, EK last year put a 4 link rear end on his buggy after breaking his old setup a couple of times. I'm sure he'll be ready for the annual new years day run they have every year.
    Time to shut it down, thanks for listening

    Forgot to mention the new 6 into 1 exhaust is new also. Finally used the flanges I got from you Tom. I also updated my profile.

    Jeff,

    Nice headers. Did you do them yourself? If so, mad props. I only saw two pics on that link.

    My son borrowed The Other Woman and has her down at the Dunes of Southern California right now showing all the LS buggies what for.

    Mark Hanson at StrangeFab Motorsports did the headers as well as the aluminum body work. He also helped me with the front end geometry when I converted to power steering. When I first met him he showed me a 6 into 1 collector he had and reminded me every time I saw him until I gave in.
    I added a few more photos to dropbox

    Jeff,

    Are you gouing on EK's New Years Day run? It's a long way to go but I might be down visiting the Kids in Vail and might want to bring the buggy.
