    I know most people never give this a seconds thought,
    but like most things it costs money to keep this web site up and constantly expanding,
    we have several members and I that have put years of work into this web site,
    to help provide as much experience, and reference material as possible,
    because most of the more experienced members remember how difficult it was when we started out, and when we had little help and no knowledgeable mentors,so This web site was set up to help all the members and to constantly expand that knowledge base and answer,
    the less experienced members questions
    I just had to cough up
    $276 this month alone for a couple web site hosting expenses
    so if you value the extensive reference material and access to this web site I could sure use some help in maintaining & offsetting the monthly cost to keep the web site up and running.
    I truly appreciate the few members that do help out but I've yet to break even on any expenses,
    so if you can afford to kick a few bucks this way to keep the web site up it sure would help!

    Grumpy... quick little THANK YOU !!! OUTSTANDING Site!! ....just joined, have been researching, and reading your posts over and over, regarding the SBC Edelbrock STR 10 Cross Ram I have one sitting on the shelf and want to put it to use on my 84 Z-28 mainly because I have yet to see one on anything in my area. Have numerous carbs to choose from...sadly not the 390's I've seen mentioned frequently ...but I do have a new set of 9776's and 4777-C's to work with. I can not tell you how impressed I am with this site as it gave me SOOOOO much needed info....with that said, I will contribute to the cause to help maintain this Mother Lode of info...CUDO'S to you and anyone who has helped with this site !!! You will see payment to your donation site also.. Thank You, Capper

    thank you! for any help, by far most months we run in the red,
    (not meeting the cost to run the website)
    the web sites designed to allow the members to do the research required and get the correct answer's so they can avoid most of the wasted time and money that I wasted, over the last 55 years, learning how to do or get the mods done on my and my friends cars, the real world modifications that actually benefit the performance car and engine building process.
    after all a car that needs constant repairs or maintenance,
    or one that does not run up to its potential is not much fun, too own or drive.
    so it makes a lot of sense to know exactly how things work, and to buy and install the correct components to maximize durability and performance and to avoid wasting time and money on things that don,t work, or doing things incorrectly.

    anything helps a great deal,
    as we seldom, cover the cost of keeping the web site open, and related expenses with the donations
