  1. Good to hear, look forward to hearing your results and stories. I appreciate the irony of you leaning on the fender. Now get a picture parked under a no parking sign while leaning on the fender.

    tony made a decent test pass today, looks like there's only one other car in his class, and it's a bunch slower.

    I heard 320 cars here.

    We'll see what happens in the morning

    didn't get enough pictures during registration, but I got to spend most of the talking with people about cars, etc.

    I think Tricky Steve and Cheryl are in the Hot rod class, and Kevin Jackson in the coop as well.

    yeah, that's the scoop. Haven' heard yet this morning how things are going.

    It's still dark here in Indy, getting ready to head to the track soon. Got to talk to Steve and Cheryl yesterday for a while, that was fun

    Mike gave up on the engine swap. The Ranchero in my class is also out. I had a starting issue, but got it kind of fixed I need to find a new neutral safety switch, my brother is trying to locate one in Rockford.

    Tony had transmission troubles, he's still ahead of Cheryl in hot rod class. Had a long day yesterday.

    I ran slower today.

    Got to see a few more hamb guys l in the pits. It's fun

    i'm doing ok...I guess Tony is having more trouble, Joel posted about it. Wish I could help, I don't know where to find parts around here.

    my brother found the switch I need, Grainger has it, I'll drive up to Rockford in the morning and pick it up.
