    The Bombers and Vintage Torque are gonna try to have some fun on Sept. 29

    We are hoping to re create the same atmosphere that was at the Meltdown Drags in Byron and
    the Hunnert Heads Up in Union Grove.....
    laid back - no attitudes........everyone hanging out and having a good time.

    OUR event will be a Billet Free Zone.....entrys should be 1966 or older. (we can make
    exceptions for vintage drag cars but you must get pre approval from The Bombers)
    Please understand that we are trying to recreate the hey day of drag racing - this means no
    billet!!!
    Period correct wheels ONLY!
    We are not trying to be snobs.....just trying to bring back some magic for 1 day........
    and yes - you with that amazing Henry J gasser truck....you have an amazing ride - but the
    Boyd Coddington wheels on there mean you park in a different area (across from the pits)-
    either ya change 'em out - or blast down with another group that are out there making passes.

    There WILL be a separate parking area for cool cars that dont meet the entry requirements -
    right across from the pit area! So go ahead and bring that bad ass '70 Charger....just
    understand the the spirit of the show is to focus on the traditions of the past....and ultimately
    this means no attitudes, just getting together and have a good time.
    Remember the point of this whole get together is FUN. Attitudes can stay checked at the door.
    There will be NO prize $$$. This is not that kind of event.


    What we want!
    Gassers!
    Front Engine Dragsters!
    Hot Rods!
    Super Stocks!
    Altered Wheel Base Cars!
    even Kustoms and Classics are welcome - but please no modern paint schemes (from the
    80s/90s) or billet.
    And YES - if you have a Motorcyle that fits in to this scene - bring it on out! We would really
    love to see some old drag bikes if you have one hidden in the garage! Cafe Racers and
    Scooters welcome too!!!

    We will have live bands - Surf Zombies and The Afterdarks are slated for appearances. Another band will be announced shortly.


    What makes this event unique is that you can make passes with your own car if you choose to
    do so.....
    your '61 Caddy can push the envelope and make a pass under 24 seconds!!!!

    Camping On Site - contact the Dragway

    Cordova Drag Way has announced that if you do NOT want to run your car down the track....
    you dont have to pay the $20
    When you pull up to the gate tell them you are just going to SHOW - and No Go....
    this way they understand your car is NOT going to make any passes on the track.

    However I would say the whole point for coming out is to make some passes at the track!!!!

    Anyway - hope to see some of ya there - we have Surf Zombies and THe Afterdarks playing live!
    That is worth the price of admission alone!!!

    JUst talked to Eric from The Fugitives today - sounds like he has been spreading the word about the event - says some guys from MN may be heading to Cordova!
    Unfortunately his ride is broke - victim of the Meltdown.

    But he is still apt to make an appearance with his daily driver - we hope anyway!!!
    Seeya there

    Well, the van's suspension issues still haven't been sorted out, and now a family obligation has come up, so I can't make it, but both the 59 and I will be at the Iron Invasion.

    I was at last year's event and really enjoyed it. Cordova is a very nice facility overall.

    Unfortunately, can't make it this year. Daughter's last homecoming is that day -- I would have to move into the garage if I missed that. Next year for sure.
