    I know a bunch of HAMB'ers were there.
    I got a call from the Conway Tavern from the boys.
    Anyone take pictures?

    Eric, I took some digipixs but they are a little dark. After one trans failure at the timed drags and two flat tires on the same car(Jerry's '49 Caddy Convert) we were running late for the Bayside State Park photo op. There were between 15 and 18 cars and the weather cooperated all day. We logged close to 200 miles. Old Beet took the drag races with an unofficial time in the 11s. Man that old Merc was smokin'. Best burn out came from K-member in the Roadrash Coupe. I'll try some pics tomorrow. We missed you bud, maybe next year.

    VAP, I forgot my camera so no pics from me, but that carb kit I got from you worked killer, the old F-1 can lay a patch now. It feels like it actually has 90hp, thanks again.

    Humboldt: No, the '58 is just my driver when it's not too soggy up here is Washington. I like to add crome reverse/wide white walls for next spring, but right now I am spending all my spare time working on my A-V8.
