    I rode it into town to get a wof. No luck, the guy was too busy. Just my luck, it pissed down on the way home, got soaked, just like the old days! The roads were very (opposite lock) greasy..... Whoop whoop! Yeehaw!

    Well howdy neighbor!
    We had a day out at a local sports park supporting our emergency services teams. Rides on show while we cooked 1200 sausages to give away to the public.

    I am thinking of going too. Just need to finish off my roadster - nearly there. Do you think they allow trailer queens.

    Well fellas, we made it to the 2024 Jalopy Dust up at Waihi Beach, for a great days racing. We spent the day playing cat and mouse on the track, watching vintage stocks, 3/4 midgets and a few local stock cars on the track.
    We just got home and unpacked, will wash off the clay on the car tomorrow.
    Here is a video of one of my runs for now. I will add the rest soon.


    And another of the pits

    This was the 3rd race for me for the day. The guy I was racing in this one slid up the bank in the next race and rolled the car! He got out safe and well with a bit of remedial work required for the car.

    Yes mate it was an awesome day! I found myself standing there trying to to just take in the moment. After 9 years of building the car, 11 years of driving, showing, drag racing and barely so much as having to do an oil change, loving every minute of it!
    Oh, and just for the record....... We won every race we ran! Yeeee frikken haw!

    Here ya go JW, from a photo essay of 880 pictures from the day in the dust on FB.
    The last round of racing we were allowed a passenger, and the ones when we were wearing hats was the "parade of hot rods" when we all went out at once for a few laps. Cheers.

    No wonder u got beat - steering on wrong side for counter clock wise track. Laughing. Great pics & sure great time. At age 16 killed old merc racing in a circle around pasture field with 2 friends. Flat field spin out into weeds nothing to hit.

    It's the Coriolis Effect. :D The cars from the club that own the track all ran clockwise.

    Shame about the coupe rolling. Looks like a cool car and he looked like he was full send. Hopefully it's not too beaten up.

    You car looks and sounds great woodbox.
