    Just got home from MAM. Had a great time made a few passes down the track. There were a lot of very nice cars that showed up. A lot of historical drag cars with amazing photo history that accompanyed them. Got to spend a lot of time today with alot of great people. My only complaint was there was a few to many brand new corvettes, cadallac cts & dodge dakotas going down the track, other wise it was a great time. Hope to do it again and anyone with pics from today please post them.

    This was a great time.I think the people who we're racing the vetts and caddys we're the old timers they we're honoring at the show.The turn out was outstanding.170 cars to race and show.I'll have some photos I took with a box camera a little later.Somehow thru relentless politicking and severe arm twisting, The modified got 1st hardcore of show.Big bad ass trophy from GRAPHX in Sioux City Iowa,and if that isn't cool enough Roadkill waves me on to the road course where the sports cars race,as I'm going by he says don't go fast.Yea ,right.:D I hope others got photos today,this was a special event.

    Rob and Big Dad-

    Thanks for the pics. I remember the Kidder hemi well. An awesome car in its day. Seems like the Kidders were bankers. Always thought that was a pretty cool car for a "bean counter" to be driving. (-:

    Was the Howdy Williams' dragster there (as advertised). If so, did anyone get photos of it?

    I lived up the hill from the Kidder garage and went to school with one of the Kidder kids.They were not bankers but ran their succsesful race ventures out of a family owned service station on 60th & L st. in Omaha.They were the hemi kings of the midwest..

    My kids and I had a great time watching the front engine dragsters run down the strip, and the car show had some very cool cars.

    Dick nice trophy man.

    Thanks

    You have to lay the blame out front and it was Jim aka Roadkill and his crew who were responsible for the whole thing.Thanks buddy,we had a great time.[​IMG]
    This is George Roseland,he and all the other old geezers are why they put on the show.George topped 200 at bonneville in a 40 ford sedan last year. he owned the Arbor garrage and is notorious for his motors.Thanks George.

    Phil & Dee Morris showed up their blown alcohol altered,the t was fast.Thats Dee at the wheel,she let Rob Lees kids sit in the cockpit of the car.Outstandingly cool.

    When I took her picture she was concerened that the motor looks good

    Thanks for posting the pics guys! That was a great day - I enjoyed every minute of it.

    The blown small block FED ran 70% Nitro and made a low 5 second pass. Remember, this is an 1/8th mile track, so that would convert to an approximate 8 second 1/4 mile pass!!

    Wow.

    yeah, thanks for the pics, Matt, thanks for making a good showing. The coupe looked good going down the track. You should stop by and say "hi".

    I cant believe the turn out, An absolutly good time. I WILL have my coupe out there next time.

    Dick , I would have loved to stick around and see ya runnin the road course! That would be cool, would love to do that in my coupe.

    Did anyone here about the red Cheetah crash on the way home? There was a traffic tie- up, looked to be that the car came off the trailer on the interstate. A wrecker had it picked up when I went by, looked a little broken up.

    Man, thanks for the pix. Brings back memories - I lived out there for 23 years and know most of those guys. In fact, I have an aluminum M/T rod out of Howdy Williams' digger that I'm using for a column drop in my Morris. Was picked from the cornfield beside Scribner Raceway, after Howdy kicked it outta the Hemi - my understanding is, that was the last FED to run competitively in the U.S...Would've been great to see it run again. Rocky told me about this deal - sounds great.
