    Okay, thanks. We'll probably bring a couple of bicycles to ride over to the swap meet with and to tour the massive pit area. My buddy also has an electric handicap 3-wheel scooter that he might bring. He doesn't always need it, but he's a swap meet enthusiast and he'll be making frequent trips over there to see what shows up. It's a long ways to walk!

    just wanted to get some information on drag racers in the sixties who had colored plexiglass windows. Was it only gassers who had the colored windows or did regular drag cars do it too?

    I think after you cut the wheel wells you don't have a regular drag car now.
    You just keep at it and make it your and worry about shuttin them down.

    Jackson maybe you could get a pair of those paddle wheel tires for the digger. Like the sand drags guys use.

    It is true.

    I have my eye on something and I don't have the space or cash for another vehicle.

    The good news is that if it sells, I will be happy...if it doesn't sell, I will be happy.

    The more I think about it, I should wait until after the Meltdown to sell it because I can change the add to say...

    "This is your chance to own one of the few cars to beat Yesterday's Child, The Lakeshore Shaker, James 409, The Hairy Hauler and Randall's blown willy's all in the same weekend"....

    Hmmm....
