I'll be there, my first time to Mokan.
100% agree. I remember the days well.
I saw that car run many times at Island Dragway in the early/mid sixties. It always ran well.
In my mind, no question!
Hope to see you at Byron!
Me too. I'm happy to be able to participate!
I'm looking forward to it. Spectated last year, but running this time.
2300 Lbs without you and fuel/oil to make a pass.
A big improvement from earlier forecast. Lets hope that it holds
This is really a valid point -- and across the board. It's not limited to HR Magazine.
Wouldn't miss it. The current weather forecast shows cloudy but no rain for Saturday. I hope that holds.
I assembled the SBC 388 that's now in my 37 ford in 2003. I used all first-class new parts, so I was shocked to discover the rear-main seal...
James, are you sure that it was not? My memory is old (like me), but I seem to recall one version of the 1968 Corvette 427 with three twos.
Picture at Ramona CA, early sixties I believe.
W.C. Fields? (Not the monkey:))
I am looking forward to it again this year!
That is my understanding as well. But supposedly, the reason to remain with fiberglass was economic only. But I can't reference any source on that...
wow, just WOW!
I wouldn't miss it. Not yet sure which day though.
In my 37 Ford. Mounted with quick-release at base of the firewall on the passenger's side
In the late sixties/early seventies, I worked my way through college as a free-lance flight instructor at Orange County (now John Wayne) Airport....
#220 for me
Use a transmission jack to help?
Thanks for posting your findings. Sometimes guys post a problem, ask for help to diagnose and then do not provide feedback on the resolution --...
This is just a wonderful restoration of a historic Willys Gasser. It has appeared on display at our local Meltdown Drags a number of times over...
I happened to stumble on to the start while channel surfing, and then stayed to watch the whole episode. I thought that it was very well done.
I spectated last year but will participate this year. I bought extra wheels and am awaiting delivery of my new slicks (Towel City).
What I really...
I assume dropped front axle? Four inches?
Actually, a I think that it was a bit earlier than that. Prices really started climbing in the mid seventies -- particularly for C1 Corvettes.
This is a very early F-104; looks like an F-104A model. It would be from the mid-fifties.
