195

Go for it Frank.

I hear you ran into some of the Mopar boys from Rimbey last weekend. My Buddy Steve talked to them and they were pretty quite about how fast you guys were running. LOL

Later Mark

Wow, 2 Fords on the front page of the website! That's a first - it's usually covered with Chevys. The Mustang at the bottom is Garth Dreger's small block that runs faster than a lot of the BBC's. He ran 9.40's with the stock block and headed 351C (with port plates) and the 418 he has in there now runs 8.70's.
I probably won't even make it down to spectate, but I'm sure I'll be getting a phone call Sunday night from Frank filling me in.

Wow. I never realized that there was people close to me! I went to high school in Medicine Hat and moved up to Calgary about 6 years ago.
