    Brian,I am just glad you weren’t hurt last year.That was a scary incident that happened so quickly and unexpectedly,that it was quite sobering for those of us that tend to think we’re “indestructible “.
    The sound of that Hemi on runaway train mode was some seriously scary shit.

    Glad to see all was repairable,and,more importantly,glad to see you were unhurt.

    Looking forward to saying hello this year.

    Scott

    Thanks Larry!
    I built a clone of that guitar for my oldest Boy a couple years back.
    As soon as he saw the Hula Girl he said “I WANT!!!”
    Lol!

    Can't wait to see Scott's Mustang make some passes, hope he can get it sorted it out this year.

    I will be happy to be looking at his tail lights after all the fun we have had so far the last 3 years.

    Pondering over the 138 mph street dyno run, I thought maybe he was the successful bidder on Gas Ronda at Mecum auctions this year.:p

    Norb I can't either I got a chance to ride in it last time he was at meltdown and that thing is pretty violent on the launch of course it wasn't on the track but for a ford it was snappy and I was impressed it should be one helluva runner that's for sure

    That would be so Cool. Their 37 Chevy and 55 Chevy gassers are two of my favorites.

    Hmmm....Just noticed on the 37, is that a Plymouth or Desoto rear bumper???

    WELL Jackson I stumbled across these new tire at a show so I did myself some dumpster diving to get the look and fit. All is looking good for this year to work on a dance card.

    Hey Salty, to answer your question about me running at the Meltdown...well, no I was asleep at the tree and never registered. Definitely thinking about the other MDA events though. Speaking of sleeping, you all best get your hotel room booked. I had a difficult time finding anything, anywhere, that had a 2 bed room available. There are plenty of single bed rooms remaining at the local hotels. Looking forward to the event!

  23. just a heads up. due to the up tick in the economy racers are buying parts like never before according to industry experts. i recently spoke to a friend who ordered a fire suit last week. the due date is 16 weeks out. engine diapers are also a hot item with some delays on delivery. dont wait until the last minute.

    The only rate you’ll need to worry about is the rate of speed at which my tail lights are getting smaller....and smaller....and smaller....

    And if you’re going to apply for something,you should fill out an application to get in for some professional counselling after your big scary blower car gets shown the way home by a little bitty naturally aspirated “289”.
