I had been relatively lucky since my major herniated disc in winter of 2014, albeit I have been cautious with my back ever since, but my problems have came back recently. I suffered a small episode less than two months ago and bought an inversion table to try and help my situation. It more or less returned to normal but earlier this week I suffered a slipped disc while performing repairs on my father’s hunting blind stand. I am currently unable to finish the project phase even though I am SO close… we’re talking days away here. Anyhow, health is paramount so I will be taking care of myself first.
This winter I will be transferring all my projects to my Rally Group B Shrine website. They will simply be in an unlisted section of the website so not to detract away from the site’s main purpose (you guys will get the links though). This will allow me to reduce my yearly fees and be less time consuming to manage only one site.
There should be a track day testing / break-in session by next week’s end, should my back cooperate. Afterwards, I will be making my grand unveiling of the project to the world. This time around I am so at peace with what I have built that any bad comments will bounce off me, not to mention that I won’t be hunting for them either. I am proud and utterly excited of my achievement… so much so that I think it may be even better than a real Group B car: too costly and prone to break at any moment… a replica would always remain a replica: making tribute to only one model… but my Gruppe B is a healthy mix of all my favourites: my own vision of a Group B car as if I had been this old back in the 80’s… oh, and with a few surprises yet in store for the future!
