So I get up and go to this nostalgia drags/ car show called Blast from the past. They advertised gassers, slingshots and funny cars, plus the Hot Rod power tour. I get there and most of the power tour guys left already. There are no gassers, there are two funny cars and about 12 slingshots. The car show was lame and even had a minitruck entered. I went around and looked at all the old cars and met Jim Lyle aka 48fordnut on here. He's a cool cat. I get frustrated because they are running the local bracket races too and they are set to run the older drag cars at 5pm. Well it was about 11:30. I left and went home. My wife wants to check out this other local show that was supposed to have some good bands. So I figure it cant be any worse and we went. Well we went through the swap meet and looked around and this kid has a Holley 94 sitting there for 10 bucks. He also has an 8-71 blower for 25 bucks, missing the end caps. He has a 57 caddy cap for 15 bucks. I get the whole lot for 45 bucks. So my day is gettin a little better. Some friends call and said they were headed to the Blast from the Past show. It was about 4pm and i figure heck I would like to see those guys run so I went back. Got to talk to Big Daddy Don Garlitts and hang out with some other cool guys I met. Jim Lyle made a best pass in his FED and then backed it up by knocking 2 more 10ths off. He let me sit in his FED for a pic too. Jim is a good dude and Im proud to have met him So in a nutshell I started off having a pretty lame day. It did a complete 180 and turned out just great. Got to meet some cool folks and scoed some killer parts for dirt cheap. Now I need end caps foor an 8-71 and one more Caddy cap to make a set.
