sorry it has taken 4 years for me to get these photos online........more to come as I scan more.

I put this little meet together back when I was a chapter pres. (so they do that anymore?) This was at the dealership I was working at @ the time.
There are a few cars that look allot different now. like PhatBRD and Keith (its keith right, he has the black bullit wheels now)

I was there !!

Hey, I was there.......mine is the blue T-bird. Hopefully I should have my bird back on the road again after the holiday weekend. I had a solid lash adjuster back off in less that 200 miles and spit out a follower and bent a valve stem. I got lucky this time and only bent the stem so it wasn't as bad as when I broke valve guides and chewed up a piston...LOL. Hopefully I can get a new set of drag radials and make at least a couple trips to the track before winter. Last November I made it to the track right after I got the car back together and had to run on my 255/45/zr18's ......... I had to take off in 2nd gear and still spun the tires and pulled off a :

.661 - reaction
2.318 - 60 ft
8.966 - 594 ft
9.522 - 1/8 ET
80.93 - 1/8 mph
14.488 - 1/4 mph
98.48 - 1/4 mph

Cant wait to get some new drag radials and go for it again.

Well, gotta run....Later

haha look in the first picture. The car on the left look's like he pulled a Dukes of Hazzard parking job, based on the tire mark's.
