Photos From The Bash/Thank you....+Tandem Trailers!

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the Big Ford Bash come together and turn out great. We ALL had a great time racing, hanging out, chatting, eating and learning a thing or two from some of the top minds in the big Ford world.


Charlie giving us the rundown on the history and pecking order of the production heads.


Jon Kaase showing us how the SCJ/P51 design came about and how it works to better utilize the existing port area to make more power than other designs.


Wes Littrell accepting a BIG check from Eric at Diamond pistons all for winning the Pro class drag racing. Generous prizes were awarded from all of the sponsors of the event and their participation is really appreciated.


This photo shows Lem Evans struggling to pay attention during Charlie's segment of the cylinder head seminar. Could it be that he's heard this whole story before, maybe once or twice?

Thanks again!

Here's a photo of the tandem trailer setup that hauled two Ford pickups to the Big Ford Bash as requested by Adney Brown.

Holy crap!

We could never get away with trailering like that in CA! I think one would have to be a Gooseneck to do it.

Sweet looking tandem setup. I think it'd be legal almost anywhere unless it exceeds the legal max lebgth. I have a friend that hauled a travel trailer and a boat..

I'm going to show that one to my Dad. He hauls 2 trailers every night for work, but they don't look like that!!

Actually we tested the setup the week before when we went to Gateway for Shannon's truck's maiden voyage down the track. It took a little fiddling to get it just right, moving the trucks back and forth a foot or so made all the difference. It's funny how the back trailer just follows right in the tracks of the front one almost as if it was on rails. Works good and having brakes on the trailers is a must.

We do that all the time here. Except the first trailer is a 48 ft Gooseneck hauling 2 6500 lb pulling trucks. REDNECKS Forever!!!

1990 GT, 347 / 76mm turbo setup OUT AND GONE!

New setup going in. Dove headed 545 with a plate kit to 400, progressive, Th400 etc. etc. etc.

Isn't that Wes Littrell's truck? Look behind him in the picture where he is receiving the check from Eric from Diamond.

Yes, the black truck is Wes Littrell's truck and the red one belongs to his cousin Shannon. Shannon's truck had only made one pass down the track before the bash weekend where it ran a 6.68 at 100mph.

Must've been great! Bret

That's over length in Texas - the DPS would have your azz for sure. 65's max. With our F150 Supercrew, a 16' trailer with a 2 wheel dolly and a car is 64'.
