Greg Weld was one of a kind. I huge staple in this community who was quick to help in anyway shape or form. Whether it be building cars or investing money - he would help anybody. He was a great guy to be around and sorely missed by so many! He unfortunately passed away from cancer.

Thanks for the update. That's too bad. I noticed that he was always helping. Was he related to Weld Wheels?

No - just the same name.

When I saw you finally posted an update I was well kinda in shock and I guess me poking the Bear finally made you post an update. The car looks great and I can't wait to see more pictures.

Refresher on the motor... I bought this motor from Shaver Racing. It's a 502 short block, 9.5-1, balanced, blue printed, mild Isky Roller, Pro Topline Heads and Hogan Intake. Very docile in comparison of what others are doing. Made 586 hp and 602 ft lbs torque. Been sitting so long my son and I decided to tear it down, clean it up and put it back together.

Spent some time tuning up the intake before sending it out for powder coating. Rounding corners and making a nice intake a little better. Time to move onto the motor. Polish the entire block....... Name:  20220204_152319.jpg
