Perks of being a GREAT body shop manager for a small company!!!!!
Damn that's one bitchin' '55.
Well thank you very much!!!! Can’t wait till April to see your lovely wife!!!!!!
Oh and you to Scott!
Yep it’s going to be fun for sure
We have located several sources for T shirts for the event, but as yet no one has come forward willing to handle taking the orders, collecting the money, and ordering the T shirts.
At the age of 81 I have about all I can handle in trying to coordinate the event with the track, parade, SNDRA, and getting my 2 cars ready, along with surviving while living alone!
So if anyone wants to step up to the plate on this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Well, it's been a week since I asked for a volunteer to handle T shirt sales and no one has offered to do this job. Time is still passing by with RWYB getting closer. So I'll try to be a little more direct with this.
Just to be absolutely clear, if no one volunteers to handle T shirts, there won't be any T shirts
I have posted previously about the parade, and it is still on. There is a formality however of each participating car driver/owner must apply for a permit to be in parade and observe the rules thereon.
The chairperson of the parade has sent me a pdf of the application, so if you are going to be in the parade as the owner/driver of a vehicle, then PM me with your email address and I'll send you a PDF of the form by email, and then when you have printed yourself a copy, fill out an online copy and either email it to me and I'll forward to committee chairperson or furnish you with her email address or you to send it direct. This form must be completed and back to her by April 20, 2019.
If you're even considering but not yet decided on the parade, please go ahead ASAP and apply. Way better to apply and then not make it than to not apply, then decide too late to apply that you want to put your ride in the parade.
You have mail!
Don't get caught parading without a permit boys
That will be DOM and me in that scene!
DOM rolling on 2 wheels!
Woody, your roadster is quiet and respectable, while mine has loud pipes and since I will be racing it later in the day, will already have the slicks on it, and Tudor has that blown '55 registered, tagged and insured. So if he decides to participate in the parade, and I hope he will, then he and I will most likely be thevicims of po-po attention if there is any. But I have been assured open exhaust is OK, just as long as it is tagged and insured.
Can't wait! I'll be running this time unless I blow it up at Silver Dollar test n' tune this Friday night.
Brian I just posted on your build thread after seeing the link here.
Looking forward to seeing you @ RWYB, and maybe we can line up a roadster with SBC power and a coupe with Ford power before the afternoon is over!
However, since I have no roll bar, I only run the eigth!
We'll do it!
I wish I could make it this year. I hate I'm missing it and gonna miss seeing everyone

Always a good time I need to purchase a new printer and print out some flyers.
time is running out. Be there or be left out!
Good day today, beautiful roadster driving day and BGII is purring like a kitten till you step- on her tail and then she roars like a lion!
Red is coming with me and driving the '40 down also. I have now got my hotel room for both Friday the 26th along with Sat. the 27th so that we will be there early Sat. to get lined up for the parade @ 9:00am.
If some of yall come down Fri. and camp at the track let me know so that I can leave truck, trailer & BGII with yall Fri. night.
Anybody that wants to be in the parade needs to get an application in before 4/20/19. If you're not sure whether you are or aren't getting in the parade,then go ahead and apply
I mailed my application several days ago. Barry and I will leave Saturday morning and be there by 9:30. Look forward to the fund and other stuff!
git on it DOM!
From the sound of your other posts it ran very well. Glad you son had fun!
DOM Barry and I will be there early on Saturday am for parade
Probably not going to make it to the parade but we can try.
Parade sounds like fun! Looking forward to seeing everybody
As said before, if you think there's any possibility that you'll be able to be in the parade, then go ahead and submit the applicatino before the deadline, as it will be better to get permit and then not show than to all o a sudden find you can make it and it's too late to apply
Well I spun halfway down the track on BFG Silvertowns. I think I actually covered 3/8 of a mile.
What slick do y'all recommend? Something in 28X10.5-15 would be good.

Hoosier makes a good slick and I believe they’re sponsoring the SEGA. Also I recommend running tubes whether they’re recommended or not.
Met a guy in my neighborhood today that plans on attending RWYB with his ‘29 sedan Hopefully he can help get the word out too.
They let you in a neighborhood?
