    Not to mention a bunch of other straight axle muscle era cars that we run in the FX class...(not every match bash car had an altered wheelbase)

  10. FX / Match bash is going to be awesome. There are at least 4 of the above running 9's. A couple very deep into the 9's. Everyone keeps focusing on the gassers (my favorite) but the FX crowd are coming in force.
     
  11. I LOOOOVE the F/X ers..... I grew up whiffin Beswicks Nitro!!! Also...I believe Beswicks Hauler in the picture came with a PONTIAC Super Duty 421 from the factory!!! For SOME reason it seems I remember a story about the haulers motor ending up in the Tiger.... 393139_10200228078410737_682006603_n.jpg 312302_4207083661365_1172175586_n.jpg EPIC!!!! Note the TIPPIN can....and the STOCK/FUEL...they don't even know WHAT to call it!!!! BWAAAHAAAHAAA Stock/Fuel?!?! that's an OXY-MORON!!!

    Yeah, been trying to get as many as possible. Those east coast guys will be tough to get, but if they come once, they'll come back and tell their friends. I'd like to see all the AWBs pitted in a row...probably hard to do when everyone is coming in a different times. We'll see about lining them all up for a photo op.

    I didn't go through all 149 threads, do forgive me if I missed it..

    How is tech? More like NHRA, or more like HAMB Drags?

    My belts expired last September..

    Got my distributor back today,dropped off a bunch of rear diff stuff to have my buddy assemble it while I work on other stuff,the pistons Ric so artfully crafted for the Shaker are scheduled to land at Lance Line's shop tomorrow,so he can get the block finished off shortly,I ordered my rockers yesterday,and I'm going out in the morning after work to wrap up a few more things on the car,and maybe start messing with some wiring....

    We may just make it yet!:)
