    Went Friday, late morning - weather was PERFECT!

    Lot's of great gassers going through the time trials, '60s & 70's music on the PA system - really took me back to the last time I was at Thompson in the '70s

    Got to meet Candy Clark & get an autographed picture - she was really nice

    Only thing that would have been better was if I brought my '57 up & ran it - maybe in the fall

    I have to say that while I loved all the cars, BlewByYou was the hairiest that I saw - I think it was a small block too

    Freddy Bear won the AA/GS class. The K.S. car was in black primer but ran great.

    ME.GASSER - your cars and the other Willys were really cool, and were some of my favorites

    I was only there for Friday's time trials, but didn't see you run your cars

    What car did Freddy Bear run?

    Thanks for coming to Ohio & sharing

    I'm not sure what he ran in the final but the first run he ran a 5:60. I have to be truthful I was really nervous on his first run since the crash but I should have known better. That Freddy Bear is my hero.
     
  13. Had a great time. Made plenty of runs in two days. Then a stop a Quinns in Austinburg on the way home for a fabulous steak dinner.

    SEE... I KNEW IT WAS ME BRINGING THE RAIN, FOR THE SAKE OF SAVING A GREAT EVENT I WILL STAY AWAY....WHAT EVENT DO YOU HATE? I WILL GO JUST TO MAKE IT RAIN.

    Maybe a disguise would work?

    Glad it was nice weather

    Made the trip from Buffalo on Saturday. Was a great time! Maybe next year I'll be able to bring a car to race! Good seeing everyone again.

    Was a great show, but seemed like the car count was down some from last year.....maybe the weather scared some people off? Anyone know why they only ran 1/8 mile? I didn't know if it was because it was kind of windy or ??

    The Anglia body that you guys brought looked like it would make a great race car.

    That body looks nice Scott, another quality item to build a gasser with. Could have done without the downpour Friday afternoon too.
