My 22 yr old loved your ranchero. What happen Sat during time trials with that pop at the line. We hope everything was ok. We had a great time. Took many pics and will post soon. 😀
Hey everyone I had a great time Saturday, I just want congratulate Vinny Lyons with that old Rye Ford Super Stock Mustang for winning the whole deal. Peter
Dino a correction our best run was a 11.55 at 99MPH brother Mike only drove to 1000′ just like the fuelers 😆 😆 😆
the front end in the MG is 50 yrs old and needs some intensive care 😮 😮 😮 but we had an exceptional time including the giant wheelstand on the first run ever (hope there are pictures) to the understanding how to get this think working. A special thanks to all who helped with parts, knowledge and just plain help. Brother Mike got in this squirrel and kept it on all four tires, John Gunn I’ve named “The Godfather” he could have set up a booth and dispenced knowledge, VB came to our rescue with his truck we used all weekend to tow the MG around, Billy Massiello and Paul (33 Willys) The two Bobbys Schlagel and Laragena for Hilborn and magneto information. Thank You all, we have gained a years worth of knowledge this weekend.
