    Not trying to be funny or an ass but driven from where? Home, the hotel or the gas station down the street? I am guessing that as long as you drive through the gates you are good.

    No sedans are cool... I should have put that in there too... So, yeah - sedans are accepted.

    And driven through the gates - no support vehicles.

    I like that idea. A street driven flatty has little chance in competition but I love watching them run. If gives the flathead guys a chance to strut their stuff and people like me a chance to see them run without wading through the valve in head motors.

    I can't speak for Ryan or the guys at the track.. But I have helped tech cars on Friday nights at the HAMB Drags for the past 4-5 years. If a car is running slicks, that is when we look for a scatter shield.

    Like I said I was hoping that was the case it seems a little ridiculous if we had to have one. I've never got to race there and was planning on racing my model a sedan with her little 21 stud this year

    Probably get by as there is no such a thing as a tin can for a flathead backed up by a '39 tranny. LOL

    Maybe we can wrap an old indian blanket around it and say that its got a blanket. :D

  23. I personally would like to see the pits full of street drivers no matter the motor like it was in the first few years.

    I didn't even notice the pants at first. I was thinking "I wouldn't wear yellow and maroon either".

    I think for the most part when a scatter shield becomes totally necessary on the kind of cars that we drive is when someone is running a lightened fly wheel. The majority of us are just not throwing that much meat at one. I am building with one on my current project, but I needed a bell anyway and this way I don't drive 150+ miles to get told to sit in the bleachers (I hope)

    Like the boss said that little roadster has got it in spades my friend. :cool:.

    The fine for excessive excessiveness was only 50 dollars and court costs, and I am not that picky about what I eat they were probably not serving raisin pie.

    I didn't notice the color of the car at all. LOL

    Will flathead roadsters need a roll bar?

    This car may have to make a return trip to Missouri.
