No more Ellwein engines?!?

Since my debacle with the vette pushing my caddy off until possibly early next year, and since I've always got multiple irons in the fire, I was starting to see if I could figure out a way to swing a stroker block from Karl over the winter. It's been a part of my long-term plan all along and figured since I now had the entire top-end, why waste my time, effort and money putting it on the stock block if I was going to have to pull it all off later and swap it to a different block. So I cruise on over to his website for the umpteenth time to gather info and mostly just ogle.

And bam! Big red notice right on the home page: no new customers, no more engine builds for at least 8 months, and you can get on a waiting list if you want. I mean, I'm not mad at him, I'm just super dejected by that right now. If I decide to pull the trigger on the block, that means the car will sit undriveable for at least another full year. It's already been down for a full year since I popped a head gasket which prompted me to get a LE head and cam package, but the vette and other projects prevented me from getting to work on the caddy all year.

Something witty.
