    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!

    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.

    I think I ask him if he was your truck monkey, my mistake.But it looked like he was doing a good job.

    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.

    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

    I always wondered what a trunk monkey looked like.

    Saw it in the staging lanes at Cordova. No one around at the time and never got a photo on the track. Cool car.
