    Unfortunately I don't, but maybe someone else does. I only saw it this once as it was driving by.

    I love this 1933 Ford. Notice how different the light and haze is looking in 2 different directions at almost exactly the same time.

    "They" should worry about the pollution from all fires in the unmanaged forests more, and less about the cars from Detroit. The cars are doing pretty good now.....how about shifting the focus towards the forests until they are in the pretty good category too!
     
  13. Great Photos as always! Thanks

    You're welcome @ct1932ford - thanks. I agree @a boner - is that a reply to one of the other posts?

    It's a pipe fitters nightmare.....eight tiny turbos ( wanna say Kubota or some other small diesel), one for each exhaust port ,through an intercooler and into a 6-71. I think it was a BBC but to tell the truth I really didn't notice. Spent quite a lot of time at the Nugget car show trying to figure this one out.....so were a lot of others. It sounded good , but I only ever saw it cruising around. I never saw him wind it up.

    Our local show Aug. 25 had a guy from Peace River (Alberta) bring his Bonneville racer - a MGA powered by a GM 6.2. Said he had a top speed of 190, average 189 point something. Okay if I post a photo of it on here tomorrow?

    Thanks for the info on that engine @Jethro.

    I asked the guy what it's like to drive the MGA at that speed and all he said was "Damned fast!" The team is Team MGA "EH", powered by a gm 6.2 built by Saz Auto and Marine

    Saw him on Power Tour. I’m not sure that this setup actually works, but it draws attention like crazy. Eight little turbos feeding the blower, with a ton of piping hooking it all together.

    Unfortunately, I did not get a shot that shows the number so I don't know much about this one.
