    I think 10am is a good time and please push your car in from the road so as not to wake the sleeping, hungover campers on your way to the infield. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter. :D

  3. We will not disturb a single sole ............... Until Clark starts digging through are Swap Meet stuff. He might get a little excited!

    Just brought my Mom home from the hospital. She knew how much the Showdown means to us and told the nurses to take her off the Morphine and pull the catheter so she could roll. God bless her........ now if I can just keep out of the woods.

    I know what you're dealing with. Two people and gear for a couple days doesn't leave much room for anything else. Here's a picture from last year. Luckily I only have about a 200 mile trip. I'll be heading out sometime tomorrow.

    Showdown or bust:

    I'm thrashing to get my roadster back together, freaking Mig welder ran out of wire last night......... never happens at a good time (and of course i don't have a spare spool)....

    I'll be wrenching tonight and tomorrow morning, i do plan to be there again this year.....(i guess i could drive it without an exhaust system)

    any other last minute late night wrenching going on?

    from nowhere...

    Damn...and here I thought I was creative....;)

    Maybe one day I'll step up to that...

    We're on the road around 3, or 4...
  27. Oh man! Was just lettering the car when a buddy noticed I had slipt my belt, we then saw that my bottom crank pulley busted. Fugg!

    Anyone going to the Showdown that may have a spare " Model A" crank pulley? I must have did it last night when I went for a short run, luckily it was short and didn't over heat.

    I also dropped my phone at my buddies house while hooking his trailer up to my truck this morning, think it is in his yard. So I can't call all my local buddies with A& B stuff. Going to go get it now.

    Also just gave all my spare banger motors away to clean this yard up... DAMN!

    Thanks for any help! See ya at the show!

    Dirtyest...I can probably bring a good crank pulley, you just need to get me a good original one in the future...
    I gave my good one to Suhr when his broke, he sent me a replacement, will bring you the replace ment (if I can find it tonight), you gotta replace that...will keep it up until I've had a pulley on every damn banger in the HAMB, I guess.
