Default Hello from Northern Nevada

Hello to all here. I am on my second 94 BVille. Back in the day (70s and 80s) I used to wrench on cars. had to stop due to a physical thing.
I really love my RED BVille and hope some day to work my way up to a newer SC version.

To keep myself busy I build custom computers. I pretty much suck at the programing part but I am pretty good at the building custom cases part. I have had pretty good luck at the Mod-Contests I have entered. I will be taking my latest creation CrossFlo Extreme (Alum and Carbon Fiber)to a 500 Man Lan in Portland August (as long as I get this car running, lol)

If you can make it to WCBF, it'll be well woth the time/money involved. BC people are stone crazy, but wonderful people.

Anyway, Welcome to the Club!
BTW, if you can fabricate computer cases, you could probably make a nice little chunk doing custom pieces...

Click on the WCBF07 link in my signature. Just over two weeks to go for our 4th Annual West Coast meet. Just a hop, skip, and a jump for you.

That looks like a lot of fun. Its a little close (time wise for me) especially since I will be going to Portland Aug31- Sep 3)

I promise to stop by the next one though (good excuse to finally fix my messed up clear coat)
