    Well, The "FLYING PICKLE" is ready. The motor looked like this on Monday, but it's back together now.

    So we got it out of the shop where it's been since last August.

    Now, it's in the trailer. Now for all the rest of the junk to remember. See you there.

  5. Im torn. I usually go with my brother and a couple friends. We take my Astro van, take turns driving straight through. But reverse just went out in my van. My brother and his buddies are riding their bikes down. My other friends cant go now. Turns out I have to be back at work on Wednesday. But my brother says I can borrow his daughters new style VW bug convertible (sheesh how gay is that?) Lets see...if I leave Saturday morning I can easily get there late Sunday. Its around 1300 miles I think. I can spend all day Monday enjoying my one day of speed week, and then drive straight through to home with a couple of naps along the way, and be back to work on Wednesday.

    Or I can give my brother some money and have him buy me a t-shirt...What to do, what to do?

    It's the 60th Anniversary fer goodness sakes - even more gay to have someone buy you a shirt when you didn't even go. That's fakin' it!:D

    We are going to make a couple of test passes locally tomorrow evening. Then the car goes on the trailer, and we start loading everything. Leaving Wednesday for the salt. I am ready.

  13. Any one looking for rooms? You need to start calling all the small motels at least in the morning and in the afternoon! We did not have room for all this till just tuesday. The old man called around and there was 7 rooms avail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So just call. Many motels are calling to confirm the room is going to be used. Many that cant make it are dumping them now. We got in for under a hundred a night.
    I dont like how much it costs "I would rather camp" but the woman cant do that. So she buys the rooms:))

    For the first time in ten years I will not be at the August meet. I wll be there in September, and the old 55 may make a pass. I'll be waiting for pictures from you guys going to Speedweek.
    Y'll have a great trip.

    Can you believe a guy would quit a good job, just to make it to the salt ?

    Asshole Garage will be holding a nightly un-authorized happy hour, behind the Western Ridge motel, just follow the trail of empties, and look for the discusting display of humanity laying on the lawn, OH, bring plenty of beer, we will most likely need more !

    I quit my job 3 years ago and thought I'd get another job after Bonneville but they have the Dam thing every year. Maybe when they quit having speed week I might get a real job. This will be 4 Years going in a row!! This is my JUMP START to keep me going every year... See you all there..........
     
  28. Checked out a new job today and told them I could start Monday the 25th:) You know with skills a good job is not to hard to find, Speed week is the best excuse I can think of to try a new job.

    1 week off just ending and 2 more weeks to go! Now i cant make any excuses for not getting stuff done now.

    Hell, I Quit my Job, sold my Hot Rod, took a one for two dollar hit on the exchange rate, and flew 6,000 miles to get to my first Speed Week.......have found it extremely hard to figure out how to backtrack....I think I have it figured out about the end of July....then about the middle of August.....somehow I forget and mysteriously end up at Wendover....
