Here is some video of Mile's first 1/4 mile action from last weekend. I think his best run was an 11.70-pretty good for the first time! Time to swap them 3:50's out for a 4:11 gear set!!


Also, finally got my car into the nines! Feels good to finally achieve my goal.

I didn't know there was a dragstrip on the Island. Isn't that 67 Fairlane with
the big Windsor from the Victoria area? Love seeing that car when it comes to
Mission.

Once a year they shut down the Port Alberni Airstrip and run a two day race there. And yes Grant Klohn with the Fairlane is from Victoria and has run it at Port a few times. This year he had the Probe there in Doorslammer. I think he told me at Mission that the Fairlane probly wont run this year due to the fact it is in the body shop.

Had to post a picture of this 57 wagon. Terry Denomme is the owner (from Canadian Hot Rods Magazine). The car had never run (with current engine) before last Saturday. He brought it to the track, ran the camshaft in on Saturday morning, changed the oil, and then flogged it on the strip! Now thats dedication!! Note the homemade zoomies with the Walker stickers on the pipes!
(its a 521 with Edelbrock heads)

Their seems to be a lot of Fords there. Was it a Ford event or are there just that many Fords on the island?

It is an all make event. Lots of every brand in attendance. Even the odd ricer and a couple english cars just for giggles. Not sure the exact car count but I am guessing 250-300 cars. 10,000 plus total attendance for the two day event. Its a pretty big deal here on the island, ten years and still going strong.

Hey, could you post pictures of your radiator and machanic fan set up ? I got a 69cougar with a 429 in it and can only put a pusher fan on. So seeing a set up like yours would help me out a bunch
