    I will add it to the first post of the month.

  5. While you're at it, mark your calendar for Saturday June 29th! That's the F.A.S.T. Time Trials at the Santa Margarita Ranch, 9 miles North of San Luis Obispo, off Highway 101! FASTSM-7.jpg ranch13.jpg

    John, it is true what you hear, I ran that carb on a Nash Metro, for many trouble free years. Set it and forget it.

    Thanks Brian and Everyone else. I think I am going to try it out on my Stock roadster. It looks a bit too modern to run on my coupe with out hood sides. haha

    would have been way simpler to run the stock three speed behind my banger but this stuff keeps the dream alive throw out.jpg

    Binger, I used one on a '76 VW Rabbit, worked great. And that's almost old.

  11. Yeah, Better not miss THIS YEAR! This year just MIGHT be the last. Ron and Carol Mosher who've been operating the non-profit F.A.S.T organization out of their home have announced that they are retiring. If nobody picks up the task, F.A.S.T. will go "dark"! I haven't yet talked to any of the Principal's of the volunteer committee who have put on the Santa Margarita Ranch Time Trials for over ten years.

    Ron and Carol have done a fantastic job with the FAST publication.
    They have also been working on the Antique Nationals for some years now.
    I am sure someone will pick up the FAST magazine and continue. It will need the right people.

  14. Last I heard Dave Wheeler and Tim Edwards are taking it over.

  15. Yup! I agree they (particular Carol with the newsletter) took F.A.S.T to "The Next Level"! Working with Ron at the "Starting Line" of events, I found him to have been near indispensable. I know of nobody yet that wants to take over the organization! For sure these are "Big Shoes to Fill"!

    The Santa Margarita Time Trials are an event "Sanctioned" by F.A.S.T.!; not organized by F.A.S.T. Wheeler and Edwards have taken over the Chairmenship of the volunteer committee of that event ONLY! It has ALWAYS been an "Effort" to get volunteers to run that event...Everybody wants to "Run" their car; few want to "Roll Up Their Sleeves" and help "Pull the Cart"! Just my two cents!

    No matter what type of event you are running it is tough to get volunteers.

    In any club or volunteer event 90% of the work is done by 10% of the people.
