  3. LOL... Farm truck? Got a hay bale or two in the back? LOL...

    Tow rig shootout? Sucks that my 69 F100 is too new.

    Guess I'll have to settle for having the fastest picnic table there...

    :D

    At the Hot Rod Reunion when it was in Ohio there were a couple of groups, the Geezers and East coast Gassers and they ran their own program and all of the rest ran a quick 16 or something like that and didn't get to race the group guys. that's how I remember it anyhow. Do they do that at the Meltdown? I thought I saw where some groups were attending

    There are several groups attending...but the cool part about the MD is that you can race all day long, Saturday there is a schedule and some Shootouts scheduled, and you are most certainly welcome to go talk to anyone and set up match races. But there is not hours upon hours of eliminations that don't allow you to race. It is Match Race madness....for 3 whole days!

    Danny G-

    You can also call them out in this forum...it worked for me.

    Falfa- the flip flops are put away and I will be busy the next few days painting something on my trunk lid that you will get tired of seeing twice!

    Falfa and I have the "west vs Great Lakes" started... Who's next?

    Hahaaaa..!!!!!
    Yeah your coupe has little chunks of cars like mine in it's shit...!I've watched a ton of YouTube videos featuring your car yanking the front end and hauling ass down the track...

    But the black car is just a driver to fill-in til my Model A is done.I'm still collecting parts to get the chassis together,but I've already got a B&M HydroStick,a 6-71,and some Mondello heads going on a 420" early Hemi....So I'm guessing next year your coupe will be the snack-ee,not the snack-er Brother...:D

    I can't wait to see your car run though.It looks like a real savage on those YouTube videos!:)

I'd have to upgrade and get rid of my model A frame and put some real suspension under it. Its too much fun like it is...not real fast but a whole lotta fun and fun is what i preach! The first yr i went to the hamb drags my face was hurting at the end of the day from smiling the entire day. Im really looking forward to this show.

    I think that's the best thing about it:

    Everybody is there to have a good time,for the love of the traditional cars,and to throw a wicked beating on some tires and clutches.

    It's not a bunch of cut throat,takin' themselves way too seriously,wannabe John Forces turning a good time with a few hundred buddies into a chore,it's a gateway back to '65 and the way racing used to be,when every Sunday at the track was the greatest day of your life....only to be outdone by the following Sunday.

    And thanks so much to Koop and the rest of the Meltdown guys that work their asses off to make sure we get to experience this spectacle!

    I'm going to send word to the pale rider 55 that he has been called out.
     
  28. Oh I'm fine with that! Joel probably won't be able to sleep now.."Come and see." And I looked, and behold a pale horse. And his name that sat on him was Death.
