2009 Holley NHRA National Hot Rod Reunion

So who all is going??? For those who don't know this is a very big a great show and it never disappoints. I have attended this show for a couple of years now and it gets better and better every year. This is a great family event and one you won't wanna miss. Here is some info. I found. This show has a lot to offer such as there events some of which are the cackle fest and the nostalgic drag racing. They have every vendor with everything you can imagine at the lowest prices avaliable. It also has a swap meet area that has a lot to offer everything from signs and vintage antiques to Blowers. They also provide a camping/ RV area as well as a theme park for your kids. I'm trying to give as much info. as possible in my opinion this is the best show out there and I wouldn't miss it for any other. So pack your bags and book your hotels lets make this the best year yet!! If you have any questions I would be more than happy to try and answer them to the best of my knowledge.

Bowling Green!

It is on my calendar.
I planned to do it in 08, but wounded the engine just prior to the event.
Hope to see y'all up there.

I remember seeing your car, in fact I remember commenting that it was bad ***!! I think I took some pic and video of your car making a pass or two. I'll look threw it and if I find anything I send it to you. I look forward to seeing everyone there maybe we could all me up. I' gonna run my truck down the track to get a time on it, but I'm betting it isn't gonna do that good.

I know all about wounding the engine before that race!! Mine went down that saturday night ,before the Reunion ,Lem got me some rings overnighted to me and I was working midnights, had to rebuild it monday and tuesday ,loaded it weds.and hauled *** to Bowling Green. Got to the 1/4 finals in Pro gas and had a hell of a lot of FUN!! Great show and race.

That sucks man that your engine gave out right before the show last year, I always seem to have luck like this as well. When my motor decides to the a hike I'm gonna bore and stroke it. oh yeah!! Right now it isn't much more that a mild 460.

I'm glad gas is going back down for now but I have a felling it isn't gonna stay there. If it goes back up the economy is going to go to hell and it already on its way there, but for right now I'm gonna enjoy this $1.49 gal. gas, right now I'm using my truck with the 460 as a daily driver and its great!!

Thanks man, but I didn't build it. I'm gonna go back and redo it though. I'm planning on going in a pro touring direction with it. Bright chrome yellow hopefully it will be painted before the hot rod reunion. I'll post some pics of it under the hood once I get all my new stuff put on it. I'm still looking for those pics of your car.
