These two cars will be there running a match race on Nitro...
So are these....
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)
And this one.......
Looks like 12 plus Awb cars should be a pretty neat group to watch!!
And we can't forget...
All hacked ups cheerleader and BUG Art (Jungle Pam)Beeler beat me to one.lol
I used to cheer for this certain Vicky but I think someone got scared of it and sold it...... Before he took out the tree, and joined the Tri-five nation........ We'll see it again I'm sure and you'll be seeing it's taillights !!!!
Posted using two Dixie cups and a medium length piece of string.
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.
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....
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!!!
I have had the pleasure of sorry I meant I had the honer of watching Arnie lay down many runs at Wentzville .
I was sitting in jr. high music class gazing out the window across the corn field when I realized the fire I was sure begat the smoke I was seeing...was on Beswicks farm....his NEW race shop.....twas a horror for an innocent influential boy child of my young and tender age..... The Boss Bird and the truck in the above pic were among the casualties....
I was but a lad but do remember riding my bike and stopping by his shop when the Super Judge was running...he always tookem to the fair as well...where I prolly drooled over them.....
His 66 STAR OF THE CIRCUIT is still around as well...THATS the one I fell in love with as a kid...well that and "Swindler A" but dats a hole nutter story....
Just picked up a tornado south of Rockford on the Doppler.
Hope everybody down there is ok.
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.
Thanks. Dark to the South and tornado watch in effect. So far nothing yet developed.
Were ok here in Forreston but Sterling did't fair as well. Tornado was spotted in there area.
Sterling just had rain & high wind, tornado touched down south of Amboy, Illinois near town of Sublette in a big campground, lots of damaged trailers and trees down there.
possible injuries as of 10:00 last nite...
I saw pics of the mall? in Sterling with some of the wall blown out....
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..
64 T-bolt: PM sent
more HAMB drag-ish.. if it were NHRA (NO HUMOR RACING ASSOCIATION) There is 0% chance I would go
NHRA = No Hot Rods Allowed???
Does anyone want me to drag this hood to the Meltdowns? I'll give it up for $40. It was on White Noise when I got it.
Drag it and it willll sell!!!
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!
And thanks to Norb for the pep talk earlier today,and thanks a bunch to Ric,for taking care of me with parts and tech info.
And thanks to both of you for being outstanding human beings.
That being said,we're gonna chew that Ol Chebby up and poop out chunks of it Norb.
You didn't think I was just gonna get all sappy,then not be a complete raging a-hole at the end,did you...?
