If the race had come off as planned last weekend I was intending to run my 32. But I wouldn't exactly call it "racing" on my part...more like just letting the 460 blow out a little carbon. I'd have to drive the car back home as well, so I wouldn't want to leave my crankshaft laying on the strip.

Unfortunately I can't make the new race date on this Saturday. Our kids and families are coming to stay the weekend and have a "paint party" (They are painting our living room/dining room/kitchen for us - as a Christmas present.)

No, move to Nevada and go over the hill. Calif laws and politics suck and can be exceptionally stupid.

cboy Just got a note from Rocky saying the show is definitely on for this Saturday, the 16th.

And to wet your whistle, here is some footage from one of last year's events. For you youngins who have never seen flag starting...where's what it was all about in the old days.

There some great looking nostalgia cars in this footage...almost hard to believe the film is from just last year and not 50 years ago.

hole shot

the old timing lights wouldn't give you a red lite until the light shined thru the wheels and hit the elect eye again the second time . Joe Davis figured that out on his funny car mustang ,Colt 45 and ran moon hubcaps and wheelie bars to keep the light out , then he off set the front axle. so both wheels rolled thru, one behind the other , before he would get a red light. there are picts on the web of his T bucker altered, Jewel T with Moon hubcaps so some of the strips kept the old lites for quite a few years. When competitors looked at his cars,, they would ask and he said with kids needing braces and college funds he couldn't buy a new chassis. just keep screwing with his old one so he could keep it on the track at 150 mph.

And you are right Brian. There will hopefully be many more events at this strip. Particularly fun for us older guys who grew up with this type of racing.

Also, Brian, totally off the subject but since your son is also in the business, thought I would pass along that my son, Vaughn, (who you met when we all went to the Half Moon Bay show) will be playing the Fillmore on Feb. 22. Sort of a nostalgia event of a little different nature. He'll be playing on the same stage as did The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Elton John, Janis Joplin, The Grateful Dead about every a zillion other bands in the years since. It's a major milestone for the band so Dorothy and I already have our tickets.
I haven't been to the Filmore in years, saw the Stray Cats there. Awesome, that will be a great experience for you guys!
