    I thrashed all night till 2am, finishing this hasty build, new banger with all the goodies inside, overdrive, the goods.... Was untested till this morning, well I made it 60 miles to Conway just a couple miles to the meet up.... BANG!! rearend blew to pieces.... Both drain plugs missing. Well I got to wave like a jerk at a parade as everyone went by

    Well at least the car looked good! :) Shame about the rear but you'll have it fixed soon enough. Just like the Red Sux, there's always next year. :eek:

  4. Shit Scott. That sucks big time. Bitchin car, nice look...

    I missed the run this year too, I'm still on the east coast working Hurricane claims. I've been dying to see some pics...
     

  5. I'm hoping someone took pictures!!!! I could see taking a couple hundred pictures on this cruise!! Where are they!!! One day, I'll be able to partake in one of my cars and you guessed it. I'll be posting " The best damned pictures of the World Famous Swindlers poker run of 20??".
    But until then......... lets see someone elses pictures.

    What the heck? Were they not put in with the oil? Or did it blow them out... cause I don't see where the oil dripped down all over the pumpkin?

    Didn't get to many pictures but as always had a blast. 85 + miles to Conway, 130 plus cruising with the Northwest Finest, Great food, 85 + back home. Yeah, it was a good day.
