    Post a want ad here. There might be someone close that has what you need. Welcome to FABO. toolmanmike from Waterloo. Mopars on the Mississippi in Dubuque is a nice show. Mopar MAx at Cedar Falls Raceway is fun too.

    Back when I was racing stock cars, Gary ran a. Mopar powered modified. When he got towards the front row, you better watch out!!! He'd lift the left front tire the whole straight away and drive around those hi dollar chevys! One night he showed up at the county fair races with no claim rule and a bunch of big shots from around the state. I noticed that night he had a 340 block and that thing sounded VERY ANGRY! Won his heat race by half a lap, then started mid pack and in a few laps he was gone!!! Not sure where he was having his work done, but his motors were second to none in at a all Chevy track

      Radar has been keeping himself busy with motorcycle heads and the aluminum work. Woody does the cast work. Pete Williams was there too but retired and moved south. Pete owned a nostalgia top fuel that Radar drove. Radar rebuilt John Force's heads for a while. Blow up on Sunday, Next day air them to Radar to fix and send them back by the next weekend. I can see why he quit that.

              The local street machine club put together a car show/cruise list for many years but all good things must come to an end. I was told about "Ricks List" which is loaded with cruise information for us Iowa guys. Here's a link:Ricks List
