Why are the fan blades arranged unevenly?

Good to see your engine coming along. Not sure I like the paint scheme, but I can't wait to see it running.

Yeah, I was just having some fun with the paint.

I'm not sure why blades are like that. Don't even know how much air those two fans push... hopefully it's enough.

Haha, I hear stories like that a lot.

Recently, a guy I work with had that happen... except his lug nuts all fell off. 2 blocks from his house. He had more there, but the cops made him get it towed. Wouldn't let him get the nuts to fix it... Actually, it was the guy I work with's nephew.

A friend of my brothers had his lug nuts come off his rear driver side tire while on the interstate....completely destroyed the drum brake and he nearly spun out or something.

Well we got the new car today. I still really need to practice driving the stick, but I'm gradually getting more comfortable, which makes me more confident, which makes me a better driver. It seems that learning to drive a stick is all about confidence, hopefully I will be able to calm myself down tomorrow while I make deliveries (it's going to be rough, but I just need to not worry and I'll be fine).

One thing that helps sometimes (learning to drive with a stickshift) is to drive barefoot. You might be surprised, it gives you a lot more feel. Of course, that isn't practical most of the time, and you should check to be sure it is legal in your state. But a little bit of barefoot driving can help.

Well I decided to post a short video of reving my car. Some of you all need some American muscle influence The video quality is poor but the sound is good, and thats all that matters for this video.

Sounds good. Did you get rid of the mufflers and/or cat, or do LT1's usually sound like that?

Speaking of American muscle, my friend just got 4.10's installed in his 99 Camaro 6-speed. Boy did that wake up the car.
