    So it's about time I dove right back into the HAMB.......was a regular lurker a few years ago and pretty much lived in the drag cars in motion thread. Now finally looking to buy myself a hot rod, so where better than here?!

    Anyway, I also drive a 1934 Ford fuel altered. For an end of season thing we decided to perform a flame burnout :D last car down the track at Santa Pod for the season so it seemed pretty fitting.

    SO, pictures, we all love pictures!

    Yikes!! Thats more flaming than the crossdressers at drag nite at the Max nite club here in town. I guess the guys have their own drag racing schedule, strokes for folks. That's enough of that talk, welcome back to the information hiway for serious trad custom and hot rod folks. Your 34 is a knock out brother. ~sololobo~

    Haha thanks for the comments guys :) to be honest there was no danger, Santa Pod's safety crew is easily on par with the NHRA safety safari, just a case of wait for it to be lit get the signal, drop the clutch and burnout as usual.
