      Going racing end of month after a couple years with the car down. Will be interesting to see what kind of reaction times show up. Just excited to go see everyone 1/8 mile at Bremerton plus a foot brake challenge that’s been going on for years. 430” 340 should go good. 60 over now. Had to freshen her up after a few years of beating on it

          Never dynoed it before but time slips from before refresh were 1:30 60 foot 6:16 eighth 9.77 quarter. Had her a long time started as a 11:70 car and transformed every winter in my garage to what it is now. Blew a head gasket August of 2020 got it fixed thought it was good. I race in mission BC. Primarily and border was closed so car sat. Got ready to go last year and ran the car a bit in the shop and had water in the oil again. Cracked a sleeve in #7 the last time and didn't catch it. So down to bare block waited for parts waited for machinist. Missed last year too

                Right on, this is the 1st time seeing a post from you after meeting you over at kens house when I picked up my big block a few weeks ago. Glad you got your dart going. Sorry, I was mistaken with what I said about art morrison and the coupe you bought
                Nice meeting you by the way.

                    You seem to have the same problem as I do with rubber mysteriously sticking to your garage floor LOL. Good luck at the track!

                    Thanks it's been a long wait to get parts to get her going again. Drove it out of the shop and gave it a much needed bath , felt like a kid at Christmas. Loading it up after work tomorrow to get my chassis re certed.

                          Nice!, I'm trying to get the dart finished for the nats but personal life keeps intervening, at least it does have the cage in it now. Either way myself, Jon and Tim will be there so we can all hang out. 20220604_113410.jpg .
