Yes sir, that car was well known around here. I have seen it run many times there to. Shuffelltown, dang that brings back some memories. Don't know what it will run, this car will be more efficent than my old one. 5.40 or better???

Roy most of the hard work is done, need to airbrush on the headlights ect, paint the dash. Have it loaded in my trailer and waiting for the weekend. Make some hits and tune a bit, clutch and shocks. If I don't work this weekend? How's your ride coming? sounds good.

Well made a few lap's this past Sunday. best pass of the day was 5.482 @125.57 1.183 60'.Still have some clutch tuning to do. The best pass in old car was 6.10 @114.00 so I picked up a little ove 6 tenths for 1150#. Not bad I think, still some left in it. I will say after two years out of the seat, dropping the clutch on this thing was Shocked . But it came back to me FAST. Steve

nice job Steve, that 1.18 60' had to give you whiplash LOL!!!!! 5.48 @ 125 is killer numbers for that steel headed engine (D3VE heads) it should go some 5.20's when you are done adjusting on it, congratulations my friend
