    Does anybody else have pictures of the Grimes 57 Bill Burns Buick Vigor Lube??? Judging from the pipes I'm guessing he was running a Nailhead???

    So, is there any interest in an altered organization similar to the SE Gassers? Tons of organizations out there for Gassers, but nothing for period correct altereds.

    We just need to get a few guys with similarly matched cars to compete. The folks need to be at least in the same basic region. Maybe try and make the Hamb Drags, the Day of the Drags, Meltdown Drags etc.

    The Fly is fixing to get a facelift. It's in sad shape.

    I have a got a line on a blown injection nail head. That once spent time between the rails of a front engine digger around these parts. I don't know shit about injection or blowers. We could be killed before it would even see the track.

    would love to be part of an altered association, unfortunately I live on the wrong side of the country. would love to match race the hilltown shaker since we both run close to the same numbers. just a heads up the burkolder bros are getting close with their new car to run the very popular and growing fuel altered class ( 6.0 index) at the march meet and reunion . the car is a roller and the fiat body is almost done and is gonna be driven by big show pro

    Thats out of my league Old Sparks. I am just looking for guys that wanna get together and match race on a budget.

    The red Fiat on his classglassperformance page was built by a local guy I know. The car was called Spartacus. I asked him why he named it that and he said, he just liked the sound of it over the PA.

    Low 10s, high nines is the sweet spot for an affordable low maintenance altered. I must be getting old though. Haven't even started the coupe in a year and half.
