Appetite has been the scary part. He's lost 50 pounds. He's at his high school graduation weight. We'll call it Minnesota farm boy skinny.
Sounds like he's ready for pie , ice cream and candy bars .......... Yeah baby.

Big day today. I asked Jack if he wanted to ride out to Forest Grove tomorrow (today) night after I get off from at Rothsport while I grab a sleeping bag and tent for Mexico.Surprisingly he said yes. Hasn't really been for going anywhere but church and doctor appointments.

2018 Mexican 1000 Update :

Cars are just about ready for Baja. A little set back yesterday. While Jeff was dialing in the new JRI off road shocks he/we found the right rear trailing arm took a big hit last year and was tweaked, so out it came. So I had to build up another spare. Which is what I'm working on now, loading the spare parts and supply totes.

Not much has been posted on the modifications to the cars., but they should be shortly. After Jeff shares with the rest of the world I'll post a few pictures.
#rothsport_racing
The trip and race I'll chronicle on my Instagram page. #MiddleMotors

The modifications are bitch'n. Hoping to cut 4 hours off our time and win our class.

Don't know anything about the Scrambler. But the 57 Chevy is an off road monster.

Kicks our ass on the creepy crawler stuff. But on the lake beds the 330 HP in the RS 3.6 goes by every one like the glued to the sand. 135mph top speed.

We returned from Baja with the 1st place trophy. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
Cameron and Eric Healy took 1st place in Vintage Production class. He shaved 5 hours off last years time. I'm a happy camper. He has little or no damage to the car.
Our redesign of the suspension and tub lifted off the silt and allowed Cameron to put the hammer down.But I can't touch the car. It's going on display as raced at the Porsche Exhibit at the World of Speed in Wilsonville Oregon for 6 months.

Here's my work for today. Unloading all the supply and parts totes. Clean and re pack for storage and quick retrieval when needed.

Attached Image

Hopefully I'll be back on Matt's Microsquirt on Thurday.

Oh yeah, we added a Humvee to the race team for on course repairs. Dakar style.
It preformed flawlessly. Didn't need to help Cameron and the Desert Flyer. Jeff Red Sled, thats a long story.

Busy, busy ............. I've been doing all of my MiddleMotors posting on Instagram.
#MiddleMotors.
All of the shop jabbering doesn't relate to my rustoration project.
But here's a shot of Super In Law (Jack) sorting our last batch of plating.
Attached Image
Next batch is about ready. Lots of latches.

Health wise he's doing great. But he still needs to gain back about 25-30 lbs.
All the numbers are good .............
Today will be a test. It's going to be 95 degrees here in PDX. I've asked 2 times making sure he wants to come out. He's adamant he wants to come out. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif)
We're driving his new to him 2010 Ford Fusion. Tried to talk him out of getting a new car, but that didn't work either. So he can come home if need be. My DD 914 is out there.

I'm thinking I'll just start a Super In Law thread so Matt, I and Mike can post pictures for posterity ...............

Jerry, he's re designing the door rotisserie so you won't need a left and right mount.

Here's a shot of my new to us Big Boy sized blasting cabinet. Small one will get a soda conversion kit from TP Tools.

I'm looking at adding a day and going to 9-10 hours a day at Rothsport. I have another Baja car, Jeff wants a complete G body Tuthill stage rally car. And we have another 2 Tuthill G body rally cars for customers.

That would leave me either 2 days per week on my project. Or one day for clients and one day for me. Haven't decided, but need to get shop #3 emptied out so I can add 3 more lifts. 2 4 posts and one 7k, Porsche only 2 post.

Mild Rothsport 3.6 at full song.

Hopefully I'll get back on Taylor's car on Thursday.
But Rothsport has 3 more rally cars for me to assemble on the schedule. One being a 2.2 914 that will be for sale when finished. I'm hoping we can create a 916 soild roof pattern to go with it.

Makes me itching to get my green car in there for the throttle body/MOTEC/GT3RS muffler upgrades.
Sounds incredible.

This is an absolutely awesome photo. The hands of lifelong experience... Thanks for posting again Cary, I know you are very busy but I really enjoy your informative thread and super-in-law photos.
