    What happened to that roll of duct tape that Gus gave you? You could have been back on the road in 15 minutes. Wayno

    Hey Buddy if Dale is with you I bet he can fix the trailer problems with just bubble gum. Or at least he can hold the umbrella while your working on the fix. Were hoping for good runs good luck.

    Or maybe it will.......

    Really sucks for all the folks that spent so much time and money to get to Bonneville this year. Hope you can all make the best of it. See some of you at the HAMB drags.

    I'm back home from Speedweek . While the cancellation was a bummer, it was great catching up with everyone.

    We got the car teched, and sorted some new issues that popped up, in the Rainbow parking pot.

    Next up, WOS! I hope to see everyone there!

  23. Hey Buddy! Big bummer about Speed Week but it was good to get to talk for a few minutes. My plan was to retire the truck and come out next year with a D/ Gas Roadster but now that I didn't get to run the truck one last time maybe I'll bring both. lol Still moving ahead. ;) See you all next time! Cheers!

    Car is ready to race. There have been some talk of a few changes. Waiting, Waiting, Waiting....

    Buddy has changed jobs and may not be on the net as much as he was before.
