I started drag racing on Detroit Dragway in 1958, and Yes, my wife and I are going along with friends who are all racers. Many of the ol' Icons will be there and many cars of yesterday. The event is fun.
I was there for the 1959 and 1960 US Nationals. An "A Stock" Pontiac busted the 100 MPH barrier. The crowd went silent, then went nuts. Could not believe it. A stock car went over 100 MPH in the quarter. Times have changed, but that was then, and it was what it was, stunning.

I will be going to the Ford Reunion Race for that time; (even though I will probably know an awful lot of people going to Milan).
My son will probably be there.

I should be there if I get a few parts in and put in the car. Going to T&D shaft rockers and don't know the push rod length yet.

"CONNED" you??? Laughing

That would suggest that I said or did something dishonest or underhanded. Suspect To be clear, guys, I merely told him he could buckle into my car...and suddenly Milan is in his rear view mirror. Razz
