    I'm sure many of you saw my buddies old
    34 ford roadster. Don Weber has had that car for over
    30 years, and it hasn't change much other than a motor
    rebuild or two.
    That hot rod is living proof that a flathead will run!
    Banjo rear, torque tube, 39 top loader(with the good-ins)
    59 ab and runnin four 97 carbs etc.
    He blew right on by me in my black 40 coupe at the traps!!
    And I'm runnin a chevy overhead!
    A day I will never forget. I can't recall ever
    having that much fun.
    Webs old school and he's not on line, so I'm passin on the
    thank yous from him. He had a blast!
    Anyone get a pic of the race?
    Thanks again to Ryan and family and all the HAMBERS for bringing back an
    event that will keep the hot rods rollin!
    Mike

    We spent Sunday with Don at his house and that man is definitly a flathead nut. He has a computer just needs one of you guys to show him how it works. Don said this was the best show he's been to all year and loved running the car and next year he's going to run it wide open all the way down the track. His place is flathead and ford part heaven hope he makes it on the HAMB.

    Flatdog you guys would have gotten along great. Would have been neat to see you both lined up at the strip.

    Same back at ya Rock, I would have like the B.S.
    I was drivin my old black 4D coupe (wide whites and no
    hood). Maybe next run man we can talk Poncho's and
    drink tequiia.

    Fatabone.. man what can I say, you and your buds are
    the best. If it wasn't for you guys trailering my sons
    (regularJD) red '56F-100 back to Mo... man we would
    be just gettin home.
    Ha! but thats what he gets for trying to beat the old dad's 4D. [​IMG]
    We will crack the '56f open this weekeed....think it might be
    a cracked flexplate.
    And thanks to T-ED. for pullin the the hole thing together for the trip home.
    If Mikie ever get his computor back up, he will
    thank you all himself.

    Got a chance to talk with Don early Sunday morning. We were both gassing up heading home. He is definately a flathead nut. My 3-window's flattie is built very much the same as his. Man I would have love to gone down the track beside him. Can you ask him what cam he is running. Sounds like we have the same cam....and old school isky 1017 race cam with extremely long duration and tons of overlap.
