    In the past, the HAMB guys have got together at the end of the pits on the spectator area around 2-3pm on Sunday?

    Internet, I like the windshield on your coupster. Much cleaner than a closed car w/s. Good looking car!

    Ford flathead six it would appear. I would really like to hear more about your car and how you do on the salt. Anything to share?

    Back in the late 60's when I was a kid I started working on bikes, then lawnmowers and then cars. If someone would have told me 50 years that I would be on the Bonneville salt flats tuning a engine with a laptop, I would have said,,,,,What the fuck is a laptop!!

  10. Not much to share yet. Flathead Ford six with a hotter cam, Cyclone head, home built intake, modified '65 Falcon header, balanced, a little porting, Mopar HEI Ignition. Hoping to go fast and have fun. IMG_0148.JPG

    Pretty cool. 226? Looks like a street driven Bonneville car. If you ever think about mechanical fuel injection for it. Give me a holler.

    Is this still ongoing? I ask since it is my first visit and I have definitely no local knowledge... it would be really great meeting some other HAMBers in person out there...

    We got to Bonneville this evening. Usually stop over in Elko but decided to drive straight through. Quite a few campers already here in the gravel parking lot across from the truck stop.
