Re: TRP 2019

It's a great feeling when a vehicle purchase goes much better than anticipated rather than the other way around.

Re: 1966 OLDS 442

BP: I have fantasized about the manual conversion, but it's not to be. Randi can drive a stick, but does not like to do it. Too much anxiety. She likes driving the TBSS and makes it easy for us to interchange vehicles. Also, I am not up for such a major project. I'll stick to building engines w/Mave...

I really love my TBSS, but I miss the third pedal and the Hurst on the floor.

Re: 2003 S-10

If you are concerned about splashing, consider this. On my truck, that conical K&N filter has been positioned behind that open grill a few feet from the road surface for 7.5 years now with zero problems. Nothing seems to affect it. Every once in a while, when I think of it, I take it off, clean ...

Re: 2003 S-10

Rather than trying to take the heat away from the intake tract, maybe consider ducting cooler air from outside of the engine compartment. For example, something like this: https:[url]//www.tiresmoke.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1114&p=8009&hilit=cold+air+kit#p8009[/url] It has worked well for...

Tractor Pull at NC State Fairgrounds

Randi and I attended the "Got to be NC" Festival on Saturday afternoon and the tractor pulling was in full swing so we sat down and spectated. We both had great fun watching the action. This one was impressive: https://youtu.be/cd9kfV5uKP8 Here is a stocker "go Daniel, go": https...

Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

It's a tall order to push "Little Jimmy Dickens" to shave off 8.5 tenths, but wouldn't a 13 second run impress the troops? :mrgreen:

Re: Spring Carlisle 2019

I have a few of my own photos to complete the bigger picture of our get-together at Spring Carlisle this year. On Thursday, the weather held off and we were able to spend a long day patrolling the fairgrounds. When we got up Friday morning it was already raining, but we decided to go anyway. It turn...
