Post your hobby

I build Gen III Hemi race cars. I currently race a 2006 Chrysler 300 with a 462 CI stroker making over 600hp to the crank N/A. It runs a built factory trans and a Ford 8.8 IRS out of an Explorer and beefed up with bearing girdles and a Detriot TruTrac with 3.08. It's been 10.67 @126 at a 4300lb race weight.






I am also currently building a 66' Charger that has been back halved with a narrowed Dana 60,33x18.50x15 rear tire ,motor will be a 426ci GenIII with a 300 shot direct port. Race weight will be 2900lbs and looking for 8.50's.







And one of these days my DD country squire will get a little attention and a modern drivetrain and become a local tow vehicle for shows and stuff.



So what hobbies do you guys have that help keep your sanity? Lets see some pics and descriptions.....I don't care if it's woodwork,pottery,botany,or metal working....what do you enjoy in your downtime?

Thanks. I love my beer. A little history for some of you. The US Marines was founded in a Tavern. Go figure.

Very cool, love the Hemi GenIII, bikes, the bee keeping, and of course the "Kegerator". We drive these to keep sane:
