Heading out with the wife and kids in the 51 coupe deville friday morning.How far is the drag strip from the show?
My son and I are coming in early Saturday morning, and have to return same night to work next day. 57 is jacked up, literally, so I will be in the daily driver. Got the engine started about 2 weeks ago using a dixie cup for a fuel tank and a short hose to the fuel pump. After a quick scare from a carb backfire and being near the battery, I ordered a new stainless steel fuel system from gas tank to fuel pump, and a new pair of underwear.
Just a few (5?) miles. You'll get a map when you register at the host motel.
