    I just want to take the time to say thanks for a great ran event. It was a good time by all.
    Personally; The rain call, to push the event to Sunday was the right move. That's what a great promoter (Julius) does. Thanks again!

    STOLEN FROM Atlanta $10,000 NOSTALGIA DRAGS AND CAR SHOW 2013

    [​IMG]

    After working hard to acquire a treasured banner it really hurts to have it stolen by a weak minded, yellow bellied thief who doesn&#8217;t respect other people&#8217;s property <?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    not good....... who ever got it send it back.......
     
  16. That banner being stolen was one of he first things I thought of when I arrived this year and noticed no banners out on the fence by the entrance. I figured it was up front where it would be safe! Guess not. That's amazing it happened again. Next year we need a deer camera set up on that sucker

    Need to get these dates out to other folks so they won't schedule against you. I want all the cars there. Wish we could get the shows spaced out so we can go to them all. Already looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

    Thanks to everyone who came out even in the rain. We survived the rainout because of your support and we really appreciate it.

    Plans are in the works for the 2014 Fuel and Gas series of events. The Commerce date is set. Others to be announced soon.

    Little early yet for talking to Ed about our date for RWYB, but as soon as we can get enough info on other events and their dates we'll have a sit down with Ed and Ms Dorothy (she's the one who keeps track of events @ Reynolds), and try to coordinate with the other events there and at other places within a range of creating a conflict.
    How did you make out @ Commerce with your "A"?

    I'm gonna do my best to make sure that doesn't happen:D.

    I thought the yellow coupe won?
     
  26. Bobby that is hauling! What did you say was done to the engine in that car? Why is it so fast without forced induction or anything?

    Afraid the little Yellow Coupe wasn't even where the race was.......I made sure to be a little tardy on the tree so I could make it look somewhat close......Mr. Godfather Nova if you would realllllllllly like some of that Iddie Biddie Roadster ill be at Greer Dragway for the Nostalgic Gassers Finals......We can do the best two out of three .....we will just have to be on an 1/8th mile indeIx....mine would be 6.00.....I love friendly Rivalrys ........Even when they accused me of having a throttle stop :(

    LOL ...
    Well , since the car sure looks like a typical SG/SC car , I had to ask anyway.......would love to go to Greer but it aint happening. I DO enjoy the guys with the 55 Chevys and the 57 Ford ( Bone Shaker ) though.

    I really thought I'd have a shot at the title......... hoping you guys wouldn't nail your indexes..because I KNEW , I couldn't run mine that day.......some days when everythings just right it will run 50s , just not solid on a 9.50........BUT ,I'm making sure that wont happen again. Larry Meaux will be getting the heads over the winter...........if I can get consistent 9 forties , I'll have my consistent 9 fifties.
    See ya next year.

    that motor was built in the late 80's for my dirt track car 3/8 th mile Athens speedway, my driver and builder ran it for 3 years in our 65 chevelle and retired and the motor was stored in the back of an old chevy pickup under his shed for 20 years, I bought my 31 sedan and called jody and said I wanted to build a hotrod/ drag car, he said ' I got our old dirt track motor do you want it? well hell yea, jody and his son jody jr. put the motor in the car, the only thing changed on the motor was the tunnel ram and a turbo 350 trans. its got a 3.73 rear gear and a john reed dirt track cam, double hump iron heads and the small .194 valves............thanks dogpatch.... the bitch really blew our minds also...........
