Evolution: Old Blue Goes Eastbound and Down

Now that Old Blue has started to take shape thoughts started to turn towards wrapping up the car. Small odds and ends needed to be attended to. We have been having oil temperature challenges as well as final wiring odds and ends. The car now had to be completed by Thursday to be able to get down to the Falken hauler in Fontana, Ca. This is about an 8 hour drive and this didn’t start until about 4 pm Thursday. Friday morning Mike and Steve Hobaugh woke up and dropped off the car uneventfully to the hauler. At this point all that could be done was done. Now the small things that were undone needed to be handled in the pits of COTA.

Now we needed to hustle home for one of the final test days for Frank Stagnaro’s 65′ Mustang before the SCCA Nationals in Nebraska.

Once the week passed we jumped on the plane to Texas . This was a much needed week off. The hours have been flying by and wearing us out. Once we got to COTA we opened up the doors to the rig and started to get things ready.

Keep in touch to see how old blue runs.
