    ...and while I was away, they had the game announcement for yet another robotics competition that I want to play, it happens this coming June.

    So many fun things to do, so little time.

    Jim, a little off topic, but congrats on the win at the Zip Tie Drags! I saw it on Instagram.

    Another Almost Funny is in the latest issue of Hot Rod Mag...It is about the last Gas Class Mustang car of Stone. Woods, and Bones in the early '70's...

    I'm signed up for Drag Week this year. There have been a bunch of other things going on right now, and I haven't got started yet making the changes I need to Almost Funny.

    It's on my mind, though

  16. Jim, I am late to that party, and I can't say anything that has not been said. You are a real hero. And we can all tell, you know exactly what you're doing ;)

    What work do you have ahead; any parts to change or “just” tuning?

    Oh, I want to add mechanical fuel injection for the racing part of it....and also I want to take most of the engine and drivetrain apart, to see how it looks, and replace anything that's iffy. And finish the body work (hood and 'glas fenders)

    Just adding the hood should make it faster and quicker due to better aerodynamics. At least that’s what the scientific eggheads will say.....:D

    Do you know any history of that car? A friend of mine has these hanging on his shop wall. He bought them from some kid who's grandmother had them in a shed full of other neat old car stuff. 20141122_190037.jpg 20141122_190049.jpg
