Re: 1966 OLDS 442

If you ever have big air jobs to do, Fred has that evaporator at his place that should cure that water in the lines problem.

I think I'd like to "add" this one to my collection:

Re: 92 Saturn Mostmint #41

Convert it to stick and just drive it. At this point, you should be able to make it last forever. If you can make a Saturn last 24hours at full throttle, you could run a stock one to 500k miles and get 38mpg while doing it. Looks well taken care of.

Re: Dragway 42 2019

The big drawback to 42 is that it's not easy to be a racer and spectator at the same time. The new setup made that impossible. The old 42 was pretty good from that standpoint, but bad in most other ways. And I'm surprised after all that updating, that they didn't make the shutdown area longer. From ...

I love that! And you were able to get it right on the first shot too. Nice.

Re: TRP 2019

I looked when he texted me, it was over 2850 ft. Not good for numbers. When he got those original numbers, it was only 1100 ft and about 15 degrees cooler. I wouldn't get too excited about slow numbers just yet, wait until you can compare apples to apples.

Re: Tractor Pull at NC State Fairgrounds

I've been to a tractor pull with tractors and semi trucks and enjoyed it a lot. I'm sure that game can be very addicting also. Talk about the need for strong parts!

Cars and Coffee

Since I've never been to a morning cruise before, and Kevin said he was taking one of his cars, I figured, why not? I think we're taking out of his place around 7am, gonna stop and grab food on the way, then head over. Anyone that's interested, let me know and I'll verify these times. https://neocar...

Re: TRP 2019

Now Wed is looking good. I'm bolting my drag radials on tonight and planning to go. There's a octane and coffee (or whatever you call it) at Summit Saturday morning I might try to go to that too.

They're pushing back the points races and this week should be a TNT only.

Re: TRP 2019

As of right now, Saturday's forecast looks good. 57 and partly cloudy. I'll be there if they're open. Wednesday already looks to be a rainout, we'll see.

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

From the wagon to the truck, the hitch is installed. Fred had all the hardware but the flatwashers, so we made a quick trip to the hardware store in Burton and remedied that problem. I did have to slightly open up one hole on the driver's side so the hitch would sit flat.

Re: Spring Carlisle 2019

This year was a blast for me. We had three newbies in Kevin, Alex, and Mark, which mixed in well with some of the old crew. With the weather being sketchy, I understand why we lost a bunch of our gang, but I'm really glad I stayed. Without any real mission or goal made the wandering pretty easy goin...
