    It's all good, I was just a bit worried I was "seeing the future" .:eek: Next thing you will be telling me cars have more than four cylinders and are run by computers and all sorts of other electronic devices. :D Thanks for keeping this going every month.

    About the truck open nose....... Hey I didn't say go to pick-a-part and get one! If this was anyway easy it wouldn't be fun!!!

    Sorry for the late reply I don't get the updates from here I signed up for very often. Mr Notifcations must be asleep.........
    Too much ice under the snow here to go outside last few days here.

    Anyone have a single carb downdraft they wouldn't mind letting go of? I'm looking for one for my Dad's Coupe. Something like this Burns would do just fine:

    West of I5, south of Lerdo Hwy, you cannot miss it.
    Spent too darn many weekends up there.
    There is a pretty good, or used to be BBQ joint at 58/McKittrick hwy called Willow Ranch.
    ButtonWillow track has many configurations and many great places to watch, only problem is size.
    The tower building is nice, elevated and shaded.
