    The "Purple People Eater" is going to be there from Marky on the west coast? If so, COOL!

    The Gold Digger will be back in business this year. It was a tough to sit on the sidelines last year. Got the new engine off the dyno, went to install it, and the new oil pan is too deep. Oh well, the thrashing continues.

    I have personally rode in Josh's (TUDOR) '32 coupe in picture #3. It scared the shit out of me so be forewarned!!!!


    I want to go to the HAMB drags more then anything. It's the one show I haven't hit yet and I need to get out there one year.

    Fuck yes.
    I can't wait for the Drags!

    ...I just wish I was one of those thrashing to make it there.... just not gonna happen, though. WAY too much to do on the Roadster yet.



    Do whatever you can to make it, you won't be let down!

    I know but I just don't know if it's in the cards for me this year money wise. I am trying to have my car finished by the end of the summer and money is a littler tighter then usual with a paycut at work. I'll get there though, if not this year NEXT for sure!

    I think it's a 18hr drive or more for me but I know it'd be totally worth it.

    Same here, only two of us at work and we alternate weekends! Bonneville gets the nod this year for me.


    Really cool to hear that some of the left coasters are making the trek.

    Just fired the stude up with its freshened up motor this morning. It spun a couple of bearings at yellow belly so I have been thrashing so I can get it run in before Mokan.

    I feel a thrash coming on. Squeak (32 sedan race car survivor, Marky (Purple People Eater) and I will be coming out with our cars on a 3 car trailer. My car is far from ready so I had better get busy. Not to mention working on other peoples stuff to get some trip money. I hate this thrash shit. Sure am looking forward to the road trip!

    Thrashing on the little honker to get it back out there.... Machine shop is working over time! Killer to see Kev and the other west coast guys comin... Should be a hell of a show.

    The Honker may or may not have a little smell and different sound to it ;) We will leave that unsaid for now ( who knows what the insurance man would say), But i do know it will have a much stouter bottom end and a rebuilt clutch set up, so it should be stout.. Richcraft Mike is comin in his deuce roadster too... Last time that ran it was runnin 12's on bias short shiftin...

    We wanna make a good pass and put on a good show this year, see everyone in August. One of the best events of the year.
