    Wow, this thing turned out perfect! Great style, craftsmanship, and performance. I can't wait to see it on a track.

    I have one OT question. Is that the original Vulcans Vicky parked next to your T?

    Marshall,

    My brother Dan tells me that it got a little exciting when you fired the motor. Funny now, but I'll bet it wasn't when it happened.

    The car is really looking good!

    I need to get on one of Dan's car, either the Fiat or the Model A going so you guys can stage a little grudge match. That would be funny. It's been a long time since Dan was on a Drag Strip!!!!!!!

  19. A little "pre heating" prior to starting isn't that a normal procedure?

    Congratulations.

    Was that a full track pass, or just taking it easy?
