Hopefully we can Get Randy and his Cougar to the NMRA event this Fall in Bowling Green with the other BBF Forum Racers :idea:
Damon...We will definitely have at least 1 of the 460 Birds at B.G. in early October. That is my favorite event of the year!
If I have to make 2 trips to get both 460 Birds there, I will.

My wife and I want to run the Birds in True Street and the brackets.

Man, I love that track. :D

You better get to wrenching. Chuck was talking about the video I sent to him last year with the blown Mustang racing the airl plane. I then told him "That car Will be at the BBF Bash" His eyes got big and he said "Really!!?? I'll HAVE to check that one out"

So Rob, get to wrenching :wink:

I'm working on it 8)

So you gonna bring both of 'em to the BBF Bash :?: 8)
Unfortuately, the BBF bash is the same weekend as my 10th wedding anniversary and we want to go to the place that we originally wanted to get married at but could not.

That place is the Beech Bend Dragstrip. We wanted to get married at the starting line in April 1997 but it never worked out.

Maybe I will be at BBF bash next year.

If gas prices dont line out and get a little lower. Its going to be a little difficult for me to justify spending a $110+ in gas just to get my car up there. My car cant compete with the majority of the cars showing up, we'll see. Has anyone got a place to stay if I comedown for more than one day? If the weather is nice I can just sleep in the cab of the truck, anyone have a shower I can use then? lol!

Getting closer...

I'm getting closer and closer. All of the little fabrication stuff eats up a lot of time. Make this, grind that, beat and weld on the other thing. :? :lol: It's gonna be rough looking, but I think I'll make it. :lol:

don't we use about twice as much alky as gas ? $1.80 X 2 = $3.60 :wink:

Used to. Not any more. (for the racecar race car at least) I added a Primer Plus. Drive to staging and back up the return road on pump gas. I'm using less than a gallon of alky and 24 oz of pump gas per pass.

8liter, This bash is more about meeting other board members than what your car will or will not do. This is the main reason Mark and I are going plus we want to see Chris's car with a pink chute :lol:
