    I can make it there just Friday as a spectator. Is just Friday worth it? Like is there enough action,swap meet up and running etc. to make JUST Friday worth it? I take it that it opens at noon Friday?

    It was pouring here in Rockford several hours ago. Now it has cleared off for a bit. I'll try to get loaded tonight for an early start to Byron in the morning.

    Mid 80's forecast has been bumped up to low 90's. It will be a meltdown alright.

    Went through the ignition on my 55. New plugs and wires, cap and rotor. Set the valves, checked all the fluids and filled up with race gas, today. Should be ready for Saturday.

    Also loaded up my 59 with some parts for the swap meet on Friday. It's a good thing that 59 Chevys have big trunks.....Just not big enough to haul a Pontiac rear axel, though.

    balls, I broke a "new" titan intake rocker last night in the stupid QT parking lot, idling.
    shit, got pulled home, put an old one on, , then tonight broke #2 intake rocker, just like #8 last night.
    shit.. been driving the snot out of it, the rockers are about a year old. I figure I'll run out of used rockers soon.
    guess i'll be riding in the truck with my princess..
    gonna get back from the meltdowns, , and build my own stupid rocker arms. TITAN>>, suck a dick.
