Kub Kar

It is that time of year again.  We all love the Kub Kar Rally, and I love the time that father and son get to spend together.  This year we where a little rushed.  We didn't get a whole lot of info.  Then Blake's wood and wheels where so wonky we couldn't even use them.   Dave cut a couple of blocks himself and then a few days beforehand I ran two hours up to get more wheels.  When we first got the kit, Dave and Blake pulled out this file folder from last year.  Apparently they had it all planned already.  Blake went through a few books of classic cars to make sure he still wanted to do the same thing.  When it came right down to it they had one week to make the Kub Kar.  It resulted in a lot of late nights for them in the shop.  Blake loved every minute of it.  Dave even ended up taking it to work to do a few coats of paint so they could dry in time for Blake to do the decals.

A few last minute touch ups.  Dave is checking wheel rotation and Blake is sanding the axles.

They had never been through a test run by the time the Rally Day arrived.  His car did awesome.  He was so proud of it.  Dave said he may have helped a little to much, but Blake did have school the next day when they where working late at night and it was a lot of cutting and sanding.  He did as much as he could and stayed out with Dave whenever I didn't make him go to bed.
Proud boys all ready to go.
