    Hi Shawn!

    Progress is being made from what I hear! My guess is that you'll see some results by spring/summer.

    I know it's been said before about the BD block, but this time I think it's true........... "good things come to those who wait".

    (Also watch for some new "killer" heads too!!)

    Hey Steve how are things? I hope better. Im kinda excited to see whats coming, the 525 wasnt really practical for the street at 12.5-1 scompression.
    600 cubes and a procharger is sounding good.

    Do a search here for bulldog block. Make sure you have lots of buttered popcorn!

    Apparently the blocks are cast from unobtainium, if you catch my drift.

    Cason, give them a call and ask if they can ship you a block this week/month/year.... :sleep:

    We have many members that paid significant deposits on a new block 3-4 YEARS ago, that have yet to see any sign of said block in their garage.

    that right there will give you an idea. Burek got involved with Bradshaw and is doing the best he can but Bradshaw is really letting him and everyone else down.

    i've been by Bradshaw's shop and, as best as i can determine, the man has no interest in the business side of things.

    This block thing is unbelieviable. A friend of mine had a deposit on one, but sold his place to a friend of his and now feels bad about sticking him with it. I'm not sure how many are out there. I have personally seen 2. The one in Bobb's car and the aluminum one that was at Indy for the Buick race a couple of years ago. I also saw an aluminum one at PAE last Christmas (2006). I think this was the same aluminum one that was at Indy. I guess it's good I can't get ahold of one, it's saving me money.

    Guys, I got a new catalog from TA while at the BJ Auction and it hints about the new block. I also talked to Mike at the auction and he either said his pattern equiptment was being made or had already been made. He said he had incorporated many features to make this block highly desirable for lots of different applications from mild to wild. The last thing he said to me was he knew he needed to get on here and talk about it. So give him a few days and I bet he tells us more. It sounds like it's right around the corner.
