  1. Yes there are and no doubt they rock. If I could afford one I would in a minute. Bottom line I need to come up with naturally aspirated and otherwise trophies I guess :confused:

    Hey Josephus, you gonna have that pickup ready for RWYB? Am I remembering correctly that you also have a nailhead powered roadster in the works, or did I dream that or sumpin?

  8. DOM,
    The truck better be done! Working on getting it to Louisville right now. Should be shook down by Reynolds. Working on getting some stuff sold to try and get into a roadster. Got plenty of Nailheads. We'll see.

    Grumpy Ed has an "A" roadster, Henry steel, don't know if he still has future plans for it now or not, since he's built that beautiful '55.

    I'm gonna put a shift light on BGII, bump the rev limiter up a bit, and maybe even change the spark plugs before RWYB. The plugs haven't even been out of the heads since I first cranked the engine.
    All this 'cause I expect I'm gonna have a few guys gunning for me after SIM! :)

    Scot, how is the coupe running now that you solved the excess fuel pressure problem?
     
  15. Just scraped up the dough to place the next order. It isn't Dave. Put new plugs and is dry fouling them all. I ordered 8 more plugs, msd cap, rotor button, timing tape and other goodies to run hardline from pump to regulator and back to the tank.
     
  16. It is running but poorly to answer your question. I still believe it is in the powervalve, but will start over and go from there. I don't think the timing is off, it is gear driven, no chain. Honestly I think the timing is dead on, but will be 1st on the list to check when I change the plugs, cap & button.

    Got just a couple more things to do to the '40 coupe (still trying to think of a good name for that car), and then I'll get on BGII and try to get just a bit more speed! But my biggest place for improvement is me!

    Woody, the story goes back a number of years, and starts when I bought my shop building in 1986:
    My daily driver was an OT '79 Mustang Cobra painted silver grey metallic. A guy turned left in front of me and I nailed him hard, bent his Mazda on the other side!
    When I got the Mustang repaired I knew from past experience that the paint was almost impossible to match, so I got the car painted black.
    Next door to the shop was a ramshackle old house wherein lived a black family headed up by an old man about 75-80 yrs. old. He and I used to be in the shop till late at night, as I was at that time working on the interior of the building which was a wreck inside when I bought it. Other times I would quit work early and he and I would sit and talk and sip on cups of Evan Williams and water that I kept in the fridge. His name was Willie C. Collier, and I called him Willie C. When I got that Mustang painted black, he immediately named it "Black Gal", and it stuck.
    The Mustang, Willie C. and the old ramshackle house are all gone now, but when I built BGII, I named it BGII as an abbreviation of Black Gal II in Willie C's honor.

    Tom, that's a great looking roadster, and I'm very happy you're coming to SDR with it. It will make a welcome upgrade to the cars there for sure.
    As for "coming for ya", well, just take a number! After all the mishaps and problems others had while running me @ SIM, there's gonna be several others "coming for me" LOL!!!!
