SPECIAL REQUEST FROM DINO: might as well put it here……I want to be PART of the team …so I’m ‘checking in ‘ Here. Don’t have a car ,But before I hit the big shut down area in the sky, with THE original Big Daddy (not Garlits)…I’d like to Make a real 1/4 mile pass in a real Race Car. See …the last time I did that was many moons ago.It was at N.Y. National Speedway on a ‘sea-breeze’ summer night. Willy Hormente said “Take it for a Run” So I strapped into his ’55 M/P Chevy ,and gave it a try.The ole girl went sideways ,due a damp track.Out of the gate at full Tilt Boogie about 7 grand , I paniced and lifted. That was the last time I had the opportunity.Remember,when I got done announcing for the day…the lights were turned off and the equipt. was being packed up. Just want that last Speed Fix. Any one trust me ,not to break something? 4-speed would be sweet …not too fast now…don’t want a nosebleed…12 ‘s or slower just fine.14’s probably scary anyway.
And the Response WAS:

Dino, you are welcome to give the Willys a shot, I can put a lower RPM chip in so you don’t hurt yourself, or just don’t poke it all the way to the floor. Remember, you drive the car, it doesn’t drive you …………………..Mikey
P.S. It’s not a four speed, but you do have to shift it. TH350 w/brake, but it has line loc for burnouts, and you could power brake it if you want to. I’d like to see you have your day in the sun. If I can make that happen, good. I know I can walk you through the stuff you need to know. Mikey If you get more than my offer, take them all !!mikey

Hey NEAT…roxrec said: ‘You can always make a pass in SP VII. Run it as slow as you want – no law says every pass has to be all out. A low RPM launch and short shifting will still make for one incredible ride.’

AND June And Rudy:
Rudy says we can put you in a nice safe 5 speed car.Turns 13.5’s all day long and comes with drag radials for traction 🙂 🙂 It turns 13’s except when the driver takes off in 3rd instead of first,but shhhhhhhh,don’t tell him I told ya 😈
Doors and a cage Dino,got one of those too,BUT,why settle for that when you can have a kickass stereo system,nice comfy leather seats,power steering and 4 wheel disc brakes along with a rocking chair feel suspension while cruisin down the track at 101mph!!!? Not exactly a geezer machine,but civilized comfort along with a little HP. 😕 ➡ 😕 😎 J~~~
….Since this year is so much more Relaxed…I plan on making the effort to visit with Everybody all day Sat…between working the Goodie Booth and not having to announce All Day. I’ll Be up the tower For Sure At Noon Sun. For Eliminations .Autograph session planned after my “Run” 😆 …yeah right ?
We all want to see this!
Well,you have plenty of cars to choose from Dino.If I had a decently fast auto tranny car,I’d lend it,but the automatic here is a PT Cruiser.It might finish the 1/4 by Sunday 😆 😆 😆
Fist discussed on another thread/topic.Remember my brothers 69 Camaro which I’d advertised on the forum?It’s been sold and hopefully will attend the 2nd Annual in the 4 speed class.I’m working on it.It’ll be mixed emotions for me if that happens 😐
I think he would look good in the Willys. He can go as fast as he wants to. He’s the one pushing the gas. He can just power brake it a little, and then go, shift it when you get nervous, go some more, and shift it again. Up to you, Dinoman, you’ve got a bunch of offers, and you should give them all a shot. …………….Mikey 😆
Maybe I will..”.Attention in the pits…a Dino cars to staging lane 1″ 😆
I’ll let you drive this one—->
Is that thing real? Looks like a bunch of Pontiacs, 12? Holy Crap!! ………………..Mikey 😮 😯 😆
No ….he photoshopped it…thats Ed Hills two engine car from Texas ,way back then
Sneaky sucker. I just saw a picture of Hills car in the Aug or Sept National Dragster. The article said it had a dual set of slicks on it, and it was tearing up the pavement on the starting line. …………Mikey 😆
Still haven’t done this…not in 2010 or 2011…But …I might just hi-jack someones car in the staging lanes …If I can figure out how to start it and you wandered off…don’t be surprised if your car is ‘missing’ …look out on the line…I’ll be the one overstaging.
Get in your Wayback machine!
I got it…I’ll get in YOUR wayback machine 😉
