    It didn't hurt that Jim wasn't afraid to push it and drive it hard. Very deserving of the title.

    one thing most people don't know about the pictures from that day is that jim's brother was stuffed in the trunk of the car the entire time he was competing! we found him passed out under a tree around noon and stuck him in there. i don't think he enjoyed the rest of the day half as much as jim did!

    I was glad to see Jim take the honors, he has never been afraid to drive his cars to the limit. He knows that he can fix it if something breaks.
    Way to go Jim!!

    Hey Jim,

  14. Thanks for the kind words guys!

    I can definetly tell you that those HURST 10" slicks have some serious "bite". They also work pretty good on the road. I just returned from Goodguy's Kansas City rod run. It is about a 3 hour drive (one way) from my house. This year I decided to challenge the "Rain Gods". I had the HURST slicks bolted on the car and left my street-tread tires at home along with my top. We ran 70 mph down the interstate without a problem. We finally hit rain on the way home (Sunday) about 15 miles from my house. I just took it easy on the GO-pedal and all was good. Thanks Cody!

    Thanks also to Jim A. & R&C Lee for putting on one helluva fun Americruise event! I think everyone had a blast! We can't wait for next year.

    -Jim

    Shucks Gary I'm sorry, I didn't realize that my streetrod comment got you that red-assed.

    I may need to revisit the topic Saturday at Patchin's party. We'll see if I can't make that vein in your forehead pop out. :D


     
  23. Thanks Roger.
    Sorry I missed you in KC. Hope you guys had a safe trip.
    I generally try to steer clear of brother Jeff's T-shirt booth. He'll put me to work :eek: if I hang around there too long. I did see your bro's Cad, in fact I even parked right next to it once. Didn't see anybody around it, and with my short attention span, I was soon wandering off in yet another direction before anyone returned to the Cad. I probably shoulda left a biz card or something.
    Hopefully we can cross paths up the road somewhere.

    -Jim

    Jim...I didn't even see your roadster next to the Caddy...and unlike some guys that go to a GG's event and GUARD their cars all weekend, my bro and I go to look at cars...and walk all over the grounds...from looking at the low-buck to the hi-dollar cars, and to STEAL ideas...you won't ever find us guarding our cars...unless it's to slam down a cold one or eat some lunch...and those 6 dollar cheeseburgers were atrocious!!!

    Don't quite understand why anyone would pay an entry fee to sit by their car all weekend...you can do that at home in your own driveway...for free!!!

    See you somewhere...
