    If I could find a four speed to put in my car tonight I'd be there tomorrow but it's not looking good. Does anyone have one they'd sell?
     
  14. Thanks for another great Tx. Thaw. I ran a blistering 10.65 in the econoline and on the way home some d head side swiped the car next to me and pushed him into me. Not a good way to end the day.

  15. Wow that sucks I'm guessing I35, that road sucks thru Denton. Enjoyed your Econoline and glad you got to run it down the track.

    Anyway I concur thanks to The Torques for another fine Thaw, even arranged for great weather.

    Thanks to all the Torques for putting on such a great event. It's always worth the drive from San Antonio to be at the THAW. Even more, thank you for making this such a memorable day for my son James.

    James was living the dream yesterday when he got to race Skot in Flathead Fever. Skot - you are the best. Coolest cat around. Thanks for taking part of this with James. He will be talking about this for weeks.

    WOW!!! I am humbled after seeing my car on the shirt this year...thanks for the honor of being up there with such a great group of folks!

    Had fun seeing y'all at the Thaw...Figures, the car ends up on a shirt the year I don't race!
    The shirt is already a collectors item, cause the car will never look like that again :cool: Building a Super Stock 'ish Hurst Hairy Olds themed tribute car of sorts. Basically like Reed's car which is awesome, but with the HHO paint scheme...The diecast model I have gives me hope and a cool little replica to follow.

    Took it apart last year after the TX Nat's race at the "Belly" to do some paint/body work, then engine...and then suspension, got a little carried away :D.
    Life has gotten in the way and we are expecting our third child in May, a little boy this time :cool:

    SO, I'll be attending the "Belly" and of course "Propwash" for motorvation ;)
    See Y'all there!

    Neill, great seeing you, and your car made a great t-shirt. Looks like it's it going to be an even cooler car, when you get done with the re-make.
    Thanks for your support.
