Im going to the swap meet on fri but will go to drags around 5 pm. Maybe we could meet in the area in back of the pits around 5 or 6 ? Cook a few dogs and tell some stories?

I'll be there all weekend, hope to make it to the drags (weather permitting). Sounds like a plan to meet at the strip. Since there will only be one turbo BBF falcon there, maybe meet there? (I can't guarantee that I'll be the only S&H Torino there). Anyone else bringing something unique we can look for?

I'll be there Friday and Saturday.

I have swap meet space F6&F7 and will be selling a bunch of '63 Merc parts, amongst other junk. I'll also be racing a friend's '60 Edsel on Friday night.

Jim, if your referring to me I'm sorry to say the Falcon wont make it this year :cry: We are in process of assembling the new 604 and I still have to build the new headers to accommodate the C heads and 80mm turbos

I think meeting at the track would be great! Dad (Gary) and I (Dan) are fairly big guys (6'5" and 6'3"), I will wear a black T shirt that says FORCEDPSI.COM on it. If anybody would like my cell # PM me, Chilly we will hit your spot on Sat.

Dan

Chilly, looks like your friends 60 Edsel might be the meeting beacon then. (how many of those can possibly be there?)

Very sorry to hear that we won't see the Falcon this year, that car was just incredible.. (BTW, your bad luck at the dyno last year was my good fortune, I was overall hp champ for the weekend at only 463 rwhp, prolly 350+ shy of what your car makes at the tires on pump gas)

Dan, you and your dad need to get shirts that say, 1) Yes, it's fast 2) Yes, I drive it on the street 3) Yes, on pump gas

Looking forward to the trip, can't wait!

I will be there all weekend. I'm bringing my '68 Galaxie, my buddies are bringing a '69 4 door Falcon that's kinda beat (it's a cool car though), a '78 Mustang II we put a 302 in, a '66 Galaxie convertible and possibly a '71(??) Torino convertible.

Not sure if anyone is planning on a spot to meet or anything. I had mentioned in the group gathering thread meeting Saturday at noon at the Subway, on the little upstairs open air part where you can eat at tables and such. I will be at the upstairs part of subway Saturday at noon. We can probably figure out who is who or whatever but I will be wearing a green/teal Hawaiian shirt with dragsters on it and I'm a pretty tall guy (about 6'4").

I will be leaving in a couple hours for Carlisle so I probably won't be able to respond to this thread. Look like rain for today (90% chance and lots of rain headed towards the grounds) so drags probably won't happen. :cry: Alright I gotta catch a few Z's before the drive there. Hope to see some of you guys out there!!
