Thanks, but I'll never set foot on another airplane. I used to fly all the time and figure I've used up just about all of my flight luck. People tell me its much safer than driving and I always tell them you dont fall thirty thousand feet without a parachute in a car wreck.

I got a call from Don Moyer last week, inviting me to ride along with him to the drags..unfortunately I couldn't accept but i really wanted to. Its just not in the cards for me until I can get on my feet financially. i have to choose my battles carefully these days. Damn day job. Who needs em? Somebody hire me as a full time car photographer...anybody.. Maybe I can go next year..been saying that since the first HAMB drags...damn.

I had wanted to attend this event for some time and I am very glad that I finally bit the bullet and made the effort. Thanks to Don Moyer for letting me ride down with him, it was a blast apart from the cone zones in Indiana. The drags were great but the evenings in the parking lot were just as good. I got to hang out with some old friends and made some new ones too.
If all goes well I will be bringing my top fuel car next year. My mate Dennis (the Aussie who towed Kev, Marky, and Squeek's cars out) has an Aussie top fuel car (Scorcher) that raced against my Soapy Sales digger down under in 1970 and on Friday night Dennis and I hatched a plan to put the cars back on the track together at the 2012 HAMB drags. Obviously we won't be able to make full passes but look for some smoke and nitro flames.

I want to thank the boys from California for leaving their great state. It was great to meet you guys in person. Kev, thanks for going to the line with me. I hope somebody got pictures/video of that. Next time I am sure your car will be dialed in and give me fits. I also hope that somebody got a video of my pass with the seven car, he was alot faster so as I was doing my thing, out of the corner of my eye I could see him too....that pass was fun! I very much enjoyed having Rooman as my passenger to the drags, he has some great stories and information, hope I didn't ask too many questions....if only it was closer, I would never miss it!
Don,
I just wanted to thank you and kiwi Kev for coming so far away this year for all of us to be able to enjoy watching you run....For me when You and kevin lined up together, I got goose bumps....You two guys have ruined me for life!!...I have to have a willys Now!....I loved watching every run you and kev made, the lanch is really what does it for me, .....For me "It's not how fast you go, But How you go fast!" Anyhow thanks for making my weekend,

WOW! Still hearing the cars taking off the line!

We had a really wonderful weekend watching some of the most bitchin' cars in the states light them up and roar down the track! Met some new friends and caught up with some old ones over the weekend. The enthusiasm for the event was everywhere and it seemed everyone just got "it".

Thanks Ryan, Marcie and the whole HAMB Drags crew for putting on a truly spectacular event and allowing us to be part of it. You guys rock!

MAN, what a great time. The HAMB drags really has the "feel" of an early nationals type event. The parking lot time is great at night, and the one day at the track is killer. We had the little honker back in action, still working some bugs out, it is better to creep up slowly and build a tune up then go balls to the wall and blow up everything the first pass (sometimes). Heres a quick blurry video of our first check out pass,



We made a final push start and pass at the end of the day, breaking the tires loose with some water to mimick a REAL pass from the early days. The ET's arent the greatest but were workin on it! If anyone has any vid or pics of that final pass, let me know! We want to put on a period perfect show of how it really was done,,,, we got some more tricks coming!
Good seein rooman, mr Moyer, kerry, king chassis, (its killer getting oiled down isnt it!) and meeting Kiwi Kev and the shifters guys as well, and everyone else. Big thanks to RYAN for putting on this great event, the pictures you used in this post of me working on the engine and the hamb drags with the plugs on the injector are KILLER!!
And finally, thanks to RICHCRAFT MIKE for coming along for the ride..

comin back the return road..


Pit area...


DRAG CREEP!


End of the day..


'chute thrown in the seat, hot oil out after the last run, sunset in the back, always the last ones at the track... AWESOME!!



We will be back at Larry's SHOWDOWN DRAGS in October before i head out to bakersfield for CHRR... we got some surprises comin...

Bobby and Brian should get together and discuss the art of peddling. Brian's car is perfect, and he has the flame mask and ball cap to go with it. Enjoyed watching all the diggers, including Kerry's new ride and the LS powered car. Cool stuff

I wanted to get out of the tower and look at many things, and talk to many people, didn't really get the chance.

We had three concessions going and still had lines, we will work on that.

If you like this sort of thing , come and see us October 9th for our American Hot Rod Reunion!
Sorry about the cones and oil. The oil was pushing past the breathers and covered my goggles in oil. And made it all look blury. But I knew one thing. It finally was headed past 500ft and I wasnt lifing for nothing!! Thanks for lettin me run a true nostalgia car at your track. Now with oil covering my face , goggles, cowl and helmet. I feel like a real digger pilot. ha,ha.
