    Today I went to the Picacho Peak hill climb. It was a blast! Both my son and I had a great time racing and hangin' out with friends! Here is a little video from the day. Sorry its not much, I was usually too busy racing or changin' gears to record much. Enjoy! :)

    That video is absolutely sensational - thanks for showing to us. I really dig the way everyone is peeling out.

    I gotta say it again - you've got one bitchin' coupe.

    I know that Troy's final time was 10.97, which won his class. I can't remember the speed though, somewhere in the 40mph range. All the cars were banger powered, except mike's tub( see above), which has a 2000cc pinto motor. He showed up to spectate and cheer Troy on, and found out he could run on a time only basis - so he did! What was cool was the variety of engines there. From the stock TT truck in the video to Pete Aardeama's lakes racer with a model "A" block and two Subaru heads grafted together and run as a single overhead cam.One of the most wicked things I have ever heard! bcchopit - Got to remember now that you guys are freezing up there, we're just poking our heads back out after 130 days or so of 110 degree (or better)weather. Driving a roadster or riding a bike in AZ. from mid May to late Sept. is not something you do lightly! One last mention, Troy's son Travis took his first competitive trip in the family race car this weekend, and did a great job at it! Congrats guys!

    Yeah thats my A. It was my grandfathers until he passed away, and I obtained the car when I was 14.
    It has an A block, counterweighted crank, full pressure oil, Weiand head, 4 inch bore, big valves, ross pistons, model B rods, v8 water pump, v8 transmision, Model A halibrand quick change and 2 stromburg 97's
    The hill climb is just for bangers.

    bcchopit - Looks like fun! Takes a bit more horsepower to spin donuts around here (dry pavement), but we seem to get the job done! I used to spend lots of time in your neck of the woods working, ( Waterbury, Stratford, New London,) sure miss it up there sometimes. Enjoy the cold! Sorry got O/T there.

    Very sweet car...
    I just picked up quick change for mine. It needs a new lower shaft. I hope to get the rear under the car over the winter.
