  3. Car looks cool. But it takes a little more info.

    The correct way to apply is to send all your info to, theraceofgentlemen@yahoo.com

    We need drivers name and whereabouts, engine specs, parts list, etc.

    We are looking for the hottest bangers too vs just a stripped down stock A.

    I'm hoping to see some competition for Santiago this year! Stripped down light.weight banger powered single seaters.

    Midget anyone? It runs well, just needs brakes and linkages...and a nose....yes a nose. Not a banger but a 60hp 8.....single seater...

    Can't wait!

    Cheers!

    Can't wait to see whats gonna show up next year! Sounds like there will be a few single seat bangers there. Any V8 single seaters?? Might have to start a new project soon....

    Just reserved my room too! I'll be in 102 next to Lazlobassett (Matt)
     
  8. Do not reserve rooms !!!!!!!!

    Let me make it official first please. I will also get a way better deal for all of us.

    We might not even get that weekend.

    Always consult me before you make a move. I told Lazlo this morn, but he never listens! Ha

    This looks like an amazing event. I'd love to see a clone or a franchise of it in Wisconsin. All we get is lawn chair fat guy shows where everyone leaves after trophies, or a drunken barn dance party with old car parking.

    Love seeing the pictures, I would build a car for this!

    I missed last years ROG because I had to be in a wedding (trust me, I'd rather be racing!), so hopefully I will be considered for this years event. Im running a banger with 2 strombergs, Mallory dual point, long tube header and currently searching for a head.

    Gonna post a build thread when I have extra time. Top secret race prep. Maybe I'll be allowed to play with the big boys this year. I think the roof height and surfboards slowed me down a bit but driving on the sand is F-U-N.

    If I wanted to run my flathead 8 in my Tudor that would be fun to run side by side on the beach. but I am leaning the way of Y Bock for this one.
    I saw spy shots on IG

  26. Mel,

    Looks like, with all the talk of pending builds, room reservations, and general trash talk, it might be a fine time for a "TROG '14" thread, don't ya think?!?! :D
