Picture of my '58 on Drag Race Central

I am not sure if links like this will work, but I will give it a shot.
The old '58 had a decent outing at the Orlando Div 2 points race this last weekend. I lost in round 3. At least I didn't go out "ugly"...had a .005 light, same as my opponent, but just did not get to the stripe.
The 605 was flawless all weekend. I could have left the hood on.
Lets see if the link works...

Bruno,
Since they are not running Super Gas in Gainesville, I will stay home and get ready for the next points race in Adel and the Southern Nationals.
I guess I am not a very good spectator.....
Thanks!

The old car weighs 3610 -- 3620 or so. A tad heavy for Super Gas and Super Street, but the 605 makes up for it all. Hard to hit a .400 tree though.....
Thanks!

36 years of insanity

Thanks for all of the nice comments.
2009 makes the 36th year that I have been racing the '58. I got it back in '73.
We have quite a history of street racing (way back when..) and drag racing all over Division 3 and since 2000 in Division 2. I always ran FE engines until I became a 460 freak in about 1993.
My daughter grew up with the car, and now my grand daughters get to enjoy the same racing culture. I have been taking various " Money Winner" stickers to them from different tracks. They have them pasted on their refrigerator.....
I keep getting tempted to cut it up and make a tube chassied ride, but it is sure nice to have the same floor, dash and roll-up-and-down windows that I have known for so long.
I would like to make it to the Bash, but it looks like a dance recital for the grandbabies will take over that weekend.
Thanks again....
Keith

There aren't a lot of people that stick with the same car for 30+ years. You should be proud of that.
