We’re still here! | Woods Racing
26 Jan 2012

It’s been awhile since I wrote up on here…since well before the holidays anyhow, but not for any particular reason other than being busy outside the shop.
.
When we get late into December, throughout the holidays and into Jan/Feb, needless to say, it’s slightly quieter here at Woods Racing. Quebec is a very winter based community and we still make the best of the ice and snow even though we can’t get out on the drag or drift track. It does seem that the folks around here lock up the race cars, and bring out the snowmobiles in our natural quest for speed…unfortunately for me, I sold mine last year and never got around to getting another one. I sure do miss it though…
.

.
And as for the on track shenanigans that we normally do on the lake…well, not much luck there either…between weather conditions, ice conditions and well…a strong eyeballing from the Canadian Shores and Fisheries department, that hasn’t worked out either. Been kind of a bust all winter.
.
I mean, in one sense, I won’t complain…the lack of snow has made things a tad easier around here…in fact…our bad boy ’77 F-150 winter plow truck has only been out a couple times..the 351 C.I Detroit Iron motor…just kinda waits…patiently..
.

.
So what have I been doing to make this blog so vacant?
.
Well..I bought a new (well, new to me) house out here in Hudson and this is where I’m writing to you from right now…
.
It’s an old Hudson cottage with a build date of 1910, (nope, no ghosts here!) and as you know, I modify everything I own, so out came the kitchen and I traded in my torque wrench for a drywall knife.
.
Now…I’m the first to admit…I’m no prince of plaster, in fact, I’ve come to realize that I don’t do that well with wood at all. I mean heck, you can’t weld it…WHAT DO?
.

.
So this is what has been keeping me all tied up lately…I’ve still been working at the shop here and there, but taking a few weeks to get my house in order is kind of a priority…I mean hey, the Daytona 500 is coming!
.
Some of you are wondering what in the who in the hey is going on with Drift-zilla and FD, and things are going in the direction they should be, but stay tuned, because I’m in the process of creating a new page on here dedicated to that…got some cool news coming up!
.
So before I go grab my hammer and …well…scratch my head in confusion…I want to thank you all for your emails and notes…I’m glad to see people pay attention here to my blog and that when I don’t update it is missed…you guys are the best!
.
Catch ya later!
