Saturday night at Little River Dragway my old 55' Stude hot rod ran 11.94/110. I built this car in 1997/98, ran 13.60's, whittled it down to 13.0's, then totaled it in an accident. I bought the car back from the insurance co., and had all the parts gathered up in 2 weeks to rebuild the car. Then I got married, built a home, and welcomed our new son into the world. Then one day I look in my garage and buried under boxes and lord knows what else I look at the twisted, bent mess of what used to be my hot rod and realize this car has been sitting for 9 1/2 years. That day I decided this car would be running again before 10 years rolled around. Well I missed it by two weeks. (new frame, new front end, new 3" exhaust, new wheels, new slicks, oh wait I think I'll alter the wheelbase, eight point cage, new fuel cell. The list goes on and on.) But still with the old 430 buick I originally built in 97'. Went to San Antonio and ran 12.50's with an old switch pitch turbo 400 with a 3800 high stall. Swapped in a new turbo 400 and 3800 stall converter and swapped the 750 carb for an 850 and ran 12 teens at Day of the Drags last October. Went to the Texas State Championship race in San Antonio later that month, made one pass 12.08/111 and blew up the rear end. Swapped the 3.55 rear for some 3.73's and a spool, go out and run the car, 12 teens still! Made some jetting and squirter changes on the car and FINALLY! Saturday May 18th at 9:30 PM that old dog broke into the 11's! You'ed of thought I just won the freaking Winternationals! I've never been so happy about anything to do with a hot rod of mine in my life. Thanks for letting me ramble, I'll shut up now.
