    This one ran around Memphis, Tn in the early 90's. Dry sumped BBC, powerglide, 14x32 slicks, a couple of stages of gas, and no wheelie bars made for some wild passes on the street.

    Thanks Flipper. You can still have a good time even in the rain, it's only water. Kudos to your girl for hanging in there, been there done it.

    Bill is a great guy! (owner of the BARDAHL car)..

    a side note.. That car has WON BEST OF SHOW AT PEBBLE BEACH TWICE!!! ...and it was hauled on an Open trailer and sat out in the multiple rain storms that came through. I don't know why that makes me SO happy, but it does!

    ...oh, and as for the mop on my head, me and a couple of my buddies are growing MULLETS for LABOR day. (gotta do it, a bets a bet!)
