    It was hard to believe that you could make that car any cooler:cool:....but you are!!!

    Looking forward to seeing it in person.

    Hummm, can't believe I'm saying this, but that is the first sbc car:eek: that looks like a fun match for my little Flathead

  4. duct tape:...the racer's nametag!...cheap, easy, don't fall off.
     
  5. Ya!, what Joel said. Don't believe I'll have enough for Quain & the Grand Illusion (maybe a bit more power, but I'm packing a good 800+ lbs more of beef). However, I think I'll have enough to pluck a "Rotten Orange from the tree", & kick some asphalt in Engine Slow's face with that 56-1/3 Chevy. Lord knows I've talked enough s@%T, now I gotta make our ole girl git! I don't want Joel & Johnny re-naming our car "Yesterdays Redheaded Step Child"!

  8. Hey low tens in a "Heavy Chevy" with an iron lunged rat ain't nuth'n to sneeze at. Fred Texierra had the B/G record out here in'67-'68 in the 10 teens & 20's, and it took an injected A990 Hemi/Clutch Flight in a light weight Willys!

    Awesome man, can't wait till July, should be a great time! He needs to bring that thing, even if he don't want to run it, the more iron there the better!!! Can always put it in the car show if he is scared of it as you say.

    Gene and Melvin got her loaded up today ready for the trip to the meltdowns. Just kidding they are headed for a secret photo shoot. But don't be surprised if this is what they show up with in July, the same trailer the 2 traveled all over the country with in the 60s the only difference is the ranchero was a 1958 then.

    I don't care how they get here...I'm just glad they're coming. It would be cool if it showed up on the old trailer though.

    IF YOUR LOOKING FOR HOTEL GO ON www.tripadvisor.com In box, Search Rockford, IL. It will then show a BOX that says 24 hotels, CLICK on that box & you will get a LIST of the 24 Hotels from best to worst. You can then click on the hotel you want to check out to get phone number, prices or open dates... It's easy to Navigate this site... Hope this helps, Jimbo
     
  29. Just confirmed our stay at the Rockford Motel. We've been there for the past 2 years with no complaints.

    The place looks like a rough ride through Detroit when you first pull up but the beds are comfortable, sheets are clean and the water hot. No bed bugs, Ac works well and there is Wi-Fi. The rates are $50 / room for 2 beds and you can check in as early as 6:30 am.

    Not world class but it's close to the highway and on the some side as Byron. Walmart up the street and a few basic restaurants within 5 minutes
