    There was an 8BA in a fox body at Bonneville this year. But I digress, getting ready to hit the road. See everyone there!

    Well wasn't that fun, woke up late, ran out of gas, thought my charging system went tits up but it didn't, bad gauge. Special thanks to the Emperors for the day. But mostly I have to thank my pals Gup and Fish for having a two gallon gas can. Guess I forgot how much gas the old flatty needs. Five hours over including breakfast and running out of gas, two and a half back over I-90. That was a noisy day.

    I survived too, although my 8BA wasn't happy going home! 90 degrees and a shitty radiator made for an eventful trip home. And a plugged fuel filter...a TU generator... Wouldn't have missed it for anything.

    That was one healthy sounding engine in his car.

    It sure was good to see you make it up and over the top of the ridge.

    Coming, I took 460 something and have to sort and cull. It was a great day to hang around some really interesting cars.

    Cool!!! Thanks for the picture Mr 48Chev!!! Had some generator issues and some overheating issues on the way back, but she ran as well as I could have hoped.

    You went by a little too fast yourselves, must have smelled the barbeque sauce.

    There should be inspections along the way for people like you who pass me.
