  2. I'm hearing a lot of talk...sure hope it's not hollow bellowing... I brought 10 dozen last year and went home with 6 dozen... and that was after handing out 3 cases. You'd think I was charging for the stuff.

    I'm thinking this year I'll hand out beer only under the condition you drop a dollar or two into a MDA dinner fund. All proceeds go to pizza for the MDA committee. If there is any Canadian content left over I'll simply have to forget to bring it home and leave it with the committee for safe keeping.

    Give us 4 days to get your pre-registration sent back to you.....(we have day jobs and families this isnt our ft job), but after that if you have not recieved a document with your pre-entry number on it....please drop us another note...OR check your Spam or junk mail box...which seems to usually be the culprit.
    Cool Henry J......I hope your registered!! :)

    Saxxon...Miller products right on man! If you stay an extra day Koop13 can get you a beer tour into the deep caves where the beer is stored....amazing!

  10. I'll bring "DOS XX"S and the limes..,they grow year round in my back yard here, what with all the sunshine, moderate temps, & complete lack of snow. Ya know..,I see a dark & twisted strategy developing here, feed the southerners a bunch of high octane Canadian beer, get their brains all scrambled, then in the morning put the hurt to em on the race track!

  13. Hey, 9sectruck is from "Southern" England, so he is drafted for our cheer leader squad/pit crew, since he can't bring his "Kiwi Kabover", and whoop you suckers himself.

    Thanks Falfasnightmare ! I don't know what wheel I'll find for the rear but thought I would ask about the 200S's. I have a good bit of updating to do once the weather gets warmer ! I do have a USED older Lakewood 55-57 specific Scatter shield but have to get creative to mount my high torque starter to it. If I can make it, I am up for any and all grudge racing for the 13-14 sec crowd ! This car has never been down the track yet. Hopefully I can get some Norwalk, DragWay 42 or Thompson runs before I make it to the Meltdown !

    there is that 62-63 Chevy II that likes to wheelie about 1/2 way down the track.it’s on the rough side, strait axle, red with spray can yellow flames. Don’t <O:pknow if he is on the HAMB, but he was at Melt Down last year.<O:p
     
  23. Are the meltdown drags teaming up with the Hunnert car heads up again this year.
     
  24. Jim, that would be the "HIGH n WILD" Chevy II

    He has often match raced Mike 's green 56 Chev (mjb3707) at previous years events.
     
  25. We'll be at the HCHU.

    A few of us have entirely new projects in the works, and hopefully we will be far enough to make some shakedown runs by then ;)
     
  26. Sounds great Rick, we would love to have you back again.

    The wife asks if she can ride in the car while racing? If so she may let me come and spend enough time on the car to make it safe. as far a scatter shields would that be the same as my quick time bellhousing?
     
  29. a quick time is sfi certified. it should have a silver sticker on it. i run one also. you can't get a better piece.

    Thank you for the reply i wanted to make sure i didn't need more protection. Next flywheel inspection to see if its forged or cast any good way to identify? transmission is a muncie M20 or m21 coupled to 327 chevy motor.
