    Have a question for Gasser history guys?
    We're oil coolers ever run on Gassers? If they weren't I was trying to think best way to try to hide it.

    Fore sure the coolant to oil is way better and maybe easier to hide.

    You are accustomed to the heat, come on up north, think I can still find a snow bank on the north end of the woods that you can melt and warm it up around here. :rolleyes:

    Along with that rip roaring thunderstorm that usually happens a day or two before, so that the track gets flooded and the track workers have to bust their butt to get the track ready? I remember coming in last year on Thursday and it was raining so hard you couldn't see!

  20. THIS is Yesterdays "Go Wagon". Now, this dog ain't got no name, so if I turn it loose, I can't call it back. Ok, this gave me a new idea for Meltdown 2017.., "Tow Car Eliminator" This one will have a fresh 600hp Buick by then. Bako Buick.jpg

  27. Thanks guys, its a dream come true, and why I've been quiet lately. Lots of work, but I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel now. PS. Now we're only about 10 hours from Bryon, instead of 10 days!
