    Couple three years ago he passed my motorhome on the way to Meltdown Drags in Illinios, somewhere in Missouri, if I remember correctly! Then we played interstate highway tag for a while. I told the wife, I bet he is going to Meltdown! I was impressed with the car on the trailer!
    Well, we make it to Meltdown and they the car is!
    He did not let me down! Fast car and alway an impressive leave at the starting line!
    Super showman!

    Your right! I guess I got them mixed up with the Meltdown drags pictures! Sucks getting old... I get mixed up all the time now! Now you got me thinking I might not have any of him at Meltdown drags, as I was using my phone back then. But that’s were we played highway tag on I-44 and first saw the ”outhouse mouse”!

    Hey guys just a heads up... We are seeing a brisk pace of registrations for the MidWay drags even this early. That is AWESOME!!! Please help us spread the word by sharing our flyers and announcements to folks you know who have period correct cars that need to be there. I will tell you that so far the quality and cool factor of the cars registered is OFF THE CHARTS!!! I know of several more who are waiting to see if their cars will be ready. Registration is free and you pay at the gate. Registration will hold your spot however so make sure you get registered if you haven't!

    here is the link to rules and registration...

    I don’t get on the H.A.M.B. as much as I used to, but this afternoon I’m hanging out in the house and I came across this thread about the Midway Drags. Thanks to Wrenchbender for posting this picture of my Chevy II. He and I will be doing some A/FX match racing! This will be a great vintage racing event, and I hope that everyone who has a rules abiding car will be here. Don’t have a car that fits the requirements? Come on out and watch a super kool drag race that’ll take you back to the ‘60s. It’ll be a blast.

    For the first year ever I am not thrashing to get ready for race season. It is in the trailer ready to go. As long as I don't break anything before the race I will be good to go!

    You better race Jackson first for a better photo opportunity, cause when I am done all that shinny red paint is going to be gone.

    Looks like there's gonna be a bit of grudge match racing. I'll run anybody, I don't care. I'm having so much fun with this car it's ridiculous. Never dreamed a converter would wake a car up like it did this one.
