Scroll up.....you missed a bunch.
Absolutely fantastic job Tony. Congratulations
Man , talk about " adversity " with the truck...congratulations on the hard work paying off .
Looking forward to updates on the OP situation.
Dan and I are talking about getting his 29 coupe set up to do drag week next year, and I ride along with him. Wonder if it'll happen?
Congrats to @mcmopar on the hard-earned win. Great to hear that!
I did manage to snap a couple of pics of him along the way at Byron and Cordova -
I'm told that one of the secrets to a good run is properly rotating the tires...
Squirrel as a trunk monkey? Who who have thunk it?
Better mount a steering wheel on the passenger side for Jim, without it he'll be like a squirrel without a nut!
Well done Jim.
Thanks to all for the Drag Week posts. Enjoyed the ride-a-long.
Thanks for all of the support on this. That was the second time it was out, the first being at the Indiana state line of the welcoming center. My 9 day old hydraulic throw out bearing blew a seal and gave me no clutch. Then when trying to get it off the road everything else went bad. When I raced in Indy, I couldn't shift from 1 to 2, so I started out in second. I did finish, but it sucked not running the last day. I really wanted a 11 sec average for the week but ended with a 12.022 and 1st place. I didnt see any of these post as I was busy working on the truck.
Speed racer had chim chim.
we made it home.....
fun designing the next Drag Week on the long drive west. Plan II is the result of the discussion during our drive home in 2013 with my 55.
I think I ask him if he was your truck monkey, my mistake.But it looked like he was doing a good job.
If you goofballs want to see more Ms. Taylor, check Hot Rod Garage on Motortrend+
After "Almost Funny" are you now going for a "Plan III" ?
No, we were talking about what to do to Dan's 29 A coupe, to run it on Drag Week in Hot Rod class next year. It was a fun discussion.
That is a neat looking coupe!
yes it is. I think it's one of the last cars that Darrell Zipp built. Very nice inside/underneath, also. Very clean original body
Zip was a Talented Dude.
Do you think you can pack everything in the trunk?
Is that the car that he wanted the magnesium wheels for, if he is interested tell him to call me. That would be a cool car for hotrod class.
I always wondered what a trunk monkey looked like.
I would say that was a trunk monkey that was past its prime!
Saw it in the staging lanes at Cordova. No one around at the time and never got a photo on the track. Cool car.
I never got a chance to talk to him, would like to have. Neat car!
that's why I run Carter carbs
Call me bananas ehh?, tell me I’m not qualified will they?, wait till they see the jets I put in this thing.
